Sharing mobility has been changing the way people move in cities. Instead of being ownership based, urban mobility is becoming usership based, with apps creating synergetic relationships between drivers and passengers. In PisaPool, we show how the traffic footprint of home-work commuting in the historic Pisa, Italy, can be reduced thanks to carpooling - saving time drivers spend on traffic, and reducing emissions.
The graphs illustrate the fraction of the trips within a given distance from the working place performed to reach some of the main destinations in Pisa: Polo di Attività Montacchiello (PAM), CNR and Santa Chiara areas. The graphs also shows how the Global Traffic Footprint (GTF) could be reduced through voluntary and optimistic levels of carpooling.
MobilitandoPisa surveyed 6,200 morning commuters in Pisa, Italy, in 2016. The workplaces are highlighted in blue and the traffic level is depicted in red, with the color intensity proportional to the traffic level. In the current situation, carpooling is virtually inexistent in Pisa.
