Flugs e-carsharing is a flexible mobility offer in East Tyrol, Austria. Maintained and expanded after a pilot phase in 2015, Flugs enables local communities and tourists to rent an electric car to travel in throughout the Alps.
There are 11 stations in East Tyrol where customers can pick-up and return cars. Stations are located both in more urban areas, like in the city of Lienz, and in rural ones, such as in the village of Innervillgraten (900 inhabitants) and Obertilliach (600 inhabitants).
If electric cars rental systems are multiplying in European cities, Flugs covers the entire region, including rural mountainous areas. It offers services adapted to the needs of different users’ profile and is an accessible sustainable transport option in the Alpine area. Such a model is easily replicable in other mountainous regions. How this initiative was implemented and financed? Discover all the details in our good practice.16 October 2020
