CARPOOLING

Identify and validate the right levers for the adoption of intercity carpooling

Reducing individual car use is one of the major challenges to developing sustainable mobility. A better adoption of inter-city carpooling is one of the possible solutions. At the Fabrique des Mobilités Québec, we are working on testing different carpooling incentives in order to select the most relevant ones to achieve quality, socially responsible and sustainable mobility.

 

CARPOOL CHALLENGE

Carpooling - Revival of carpooling offers

REVITALIZATION OF THE OF CARPOOLING

With a dynamic but very fragmented ecosystem, we need to highlight the carpooling offers on Quebec’s territory to contribute to the reduction of solo driving. Interurban carpooling will be the priority of the offer’s revival. However, the development of carpooling services integrated in other intra-urban transportation modes is not to push aside.

OUR OBJECTIVE

Position carpooling as a service offer where public transport is not profitable or is underrepresented.

Carpooling - Street parking incentives

PARKING ON-STREET INCENTIVE PARKING

This experiment, brought by AMD, is part of another way of working on carpooling: exclusive lanes and parkings. Acting on parking is one of the levers to influencing the use of a car in urban centers where parking is already under pressure. 

OUR OBJECTIVE

Identify and control the mechanisms influencing users to park their cars and favor carpooling.

Carpooling - Financial incentives

FINANCIAL INCENTIVES FOR CARPOOLING

Carpooling is a deep change of habit for a new user, and the cost of public transportation is an important factor for most households. We put forward the proof that carpooling is a solution that can reunite all actors around incentives.

OUR OBJECTIVE

Implement a variety of incentives to highlight that solution as an advantageous solution compared to other transportation solutions.

PREVIOUS EXPERIMENTATIONS

PILOT PROJECT P$ MONTREAL DOWNTOWN

A new tool to improve your parking search!

The Agency, in collaboration with the City of Montréal, is developing a new version of its mobile application, called P$ Montréal Centre-Ville for the pilot project, which aims primarily to improve the experience of motorists and to respond to the parking problem, particularly in the context of the redevelopment of Sainte-Catherine Street.
