Rural accessibility meets community building and sustainable mobility
Testing of ridesharing models is well underway

Accessibility demands exceed the public transportation supply in many rural areas. As a result, commuters and occasional travellers adapt themselves to forge ahead towards boundless mobility. This entails self supply weaving individualised and rather unsustainable patterns. The pursuit of independent mobility leads to car dependency, evitable environmental stress with an increasing number of poorly exploited cars and difficulties to be mobile for youngsters and people without cars.


“Curbing mobility is not an option.” In keeping with this principle of the European Commission’s Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area, the cross-border project Mobile Together seeks to increase the accessibility of rural South Baltic areas by testing different concepts of ridesharing. The applicability of a concept which is well-known in the inter-city travelling contexts is to be tested in rural areas. Three rural South Baltic communities have embarked on a trial of ridesharing models, designed to serve specific local needs. Kröpelin, Bützow (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany) and Tingsryd (Kronoberg County, Sweden) operate three different ridesharing platforms which already attract a growing number of new users. The platforms have been developed in a close cross-border, intercommunal co-operation, and seek a vast rollout for other rural communities after trial.

The three trial platforms can be accessed here:
