The rideshare bench innovation
The rideshare bench – the mobility concept without a car
Especially in rural areas, the rideshare bench is a very important instrument to support and complement local public transport. Buses serve smaller towns and communities during school hours, i.e. in the morning and at lunchtime, but often not in the late morning, afternoon or evening. Anyone who has an appointment during these times but does not have a car available is dependent on help. The rideshare bench is the mobility solution.
Rideshare benches protect the environment and boost the community spirit
Not only is the mobility of the passenger boosted, but also the added social value grows considerably. The village community and the important feeling of togetherness are hugely enhanced. Not only the social but also the environmental aspect cannot be ignored. The rideshare bench means that empty journeys are reduced and the environment is protected.
How are rideshare benches financed?
These rideshare benches are financed by the communities. It is not uncommon for sponsors such as grocers, financial institutions or tradespeople to participate. To ensure that all sponsors are also seen and appreciated, there is the possibility at Erlau for an advertisement bench to become a rideshare bench.
