348 000 français en covoiturage du 3 au 5 août 2012

348 000 français en covoiturage du 3 au 5 août 2012 | Sustainable Transportation | Scoop.it

Du 3 au 5 août 2012, le site Covoiturage.fr a "transporté" 348 000 personnes soit son record absolu depuis sa création en 2004.

 

A l’occasion de ce record, le site présente une animation vidéo permettant de visualiser les trajets déclarés à l’avance par les covoitureurs.

Une façon ludique d’anticiper le trafic du grand chassé-croisé et de visualiser le véritable réseau de transport orchestré par Covoiturage.fr.

 

Contrairement aux infos trafic classiques, il ne s’agit pas seulement d’une prédiction mais d’infos réelles.
