One of the most challenging transport issues for Lazio is the capability to transport commuters from Rome and its surroundings to the EUR district, where most of the area’s public and private organisations have their offices. The local authorities cannot afford an increase of the public transport services, and indeed a significant reduction of such is expected in the forthcoming years. With the prospect of a large increase of the car occupancy rate as a result of reduced public transport options, SocialCar offers a solution. The system can also serve the low transport demand areas within the region with carpooling services directly connected to the network of existing public transport of Rome. The Lazio region is, therefore, committed to the introduction of SocialCar, supporting in particular the functional test.
