Policy issue:  Increase vehicle occupancy rates


Key assessment

Passenger car occupancy is falling in some countries (Portugal, Finland), but is rather stable as an EU average. This is despite EU efforts to increase utilisation efficiency, for example through its Citizens' Network strategy, which aims to develop traffic priority for vehicles with more than one person and promote car sharing initiatives.
