FairPark, the new carpooling platform

After a first successful trial with about 400 participants in 2019, the use of FairPark, the carpooling platform, had to be interrupted due to the pandemic.

EPFL Sustainability and the EPFL Innovation Park are reactivating this platform in order to continue the promotion of carpooling on EPFL campuses. There is indeed a strong potential for pooling individual motorised journeys, the benefits of which are both financial and climatic.
