The car is public transport! This is the motto of Ecov, a start-up that helps local authorities to develop regular carpooling routes, as a complement to public transport networks, in a logic of “shared public service” provided by citizens. The idea was born out of a twofold observation: on the one hand, the ecological emergency and the need for social justice are putting public authorities back at the centre of the economic game; on the other hand, these challenges cannot be met without radical innovation, an exercise in which private sector companies are more experienced than public players. Ecov is therefore proposing a new mode of public innovation based on close collaboration between a start-up and local authorities, with the indispensable participation of citizens. This is how the sustainable mobility of tomorrow is being created.
