Presentation of a car sharing website during European Mobility Week
The UAB will present its new website dedicated to car sharing during the European Mobility Week, taking place from 18 to 22 September. On 21 September an information stand will be set up at the Espai SiS to help users become familiar with how the web works and clear up any doubts university members may have. All those signing up to participate will also enter a chance to win a sustainable weekend getaway for two.
As part of European Mobility Week and World Car-Free Day (22 September), the UAB is launching a car sharing website. The main objective of this new initiative is to promote sustainable and efficient mobility at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, one of the key points of the SDGs and of stragetic lines 2 and 3 of the UAB 2018-2024 Mobility Plan, as well as one of the objectives of the UAB's Campus SiS. More specifically, the website will allow those interested in car sharing to find other people interested in the same by consulting the database by city, days, or compatible timetables, so that in the end, there can be less cars but more occupants travelling to campus each day (according to the questionnaire only 1.21 people travel in each car) and thus a more efficient use of private vehicles.
The website adapts to all types of screens and allows to be used directly by clicking on the home screen thanks to a link that can be activated when members sign up.
On Thursday 21 September, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., an information stand will be set up at the Espai SiS for all those interested in discovering how the website works and to clear up any doubts or questions. All those who sign up will also enter to win a sustainable weekend getaway for two.
In addition to launching the website, other complementary activities have been organised to celebrate European Mobility Week:
- Talk on the UAB Mobility and Mobility Policies' questionnaire. The debate is organised by the Institute for Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB).
- Construction of a new bike garage at the new Eix Central Sud bus stop to encourage university members to use their bikes as a means of sustainable transport.
