Green Deal Car Sharing II achieves most important objective

The target of 700.000 shared car users from the Green Deal Car Sharing II has already been achieved this spring, a year earlier than planned. This is evident from CROW-KpVV's annual Car Sharing dashboard. This dashboard is based on research by Advier. More and more Dutch people see car sharing as a good solution. The total number of users has now grown to 730.000. An increase of almost 42 percent from last year when there were 515.000 users.

The number of shared cars is still lagging behind in use: of the intended 100.000 shared cars in 2021, there were 64.000 during the counting moment this spring. That is 13.000 more than in 2019. More effort is needed to achieve the target.

There are still several barriers to overcome in the area of ​​carsharing. One of those barriers is the lack of a municipal framework for car sharing. Without such a framework, it is very difficult for providers to get shared car spaces in public space. That hinders the development of the market. Commissioned by the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and the European Commission, Advier will train 30 municipalities in the field of car-sharing policy.
