As part of the SUMPORT project, the action concerns the testing of a carpooling system, allowing port workers of the Port of Valencia to share their own cars to commute from home to work. There are currently more than 6,500 workers at the Port premises and the aim of the action was to assess, update and improve the functionality and use of an existing, yet not used, carpooling system.
The main objective is the promotion of the rational use of private cars among the port workers to reduce emissions and noise disturbance produced by commuting to/from the port area. This, in turn, can generate other benefits, such as improving public space in the port area and saving on fuel costs. The next step will be to extend the App to all Port workers
