Monaco City Hall is continuing its commitment to the environment and sustainable development by allowing municipal staff to use the Klaxit application, the French leader in short-distance carpooling with more than 2 million trips made every day.
Launched in September 2020 in the Principality, this new carpooling solution is flexible, secure, adjustable and particularly suitable for home / work trips.
The Monaco City Council thus joins 25 other establishments and entities of the Principality: in total, more than 9,300 employees participate in this project. Klaxit is aimed at anyone whose journey originates or ends in Monaco, whether they are an employee of one of the partner companies or not.
It is part of the ambitious “Mobility” policy of the Prince’s Government, aiming to reduce automobile traffic in Monaco by 20% by 2030 in order to recover the equivalent of the traffic density from that observed in 1990. The Klaxit project thus complements the development of public transport, shared mobility and “soft” modes.
With this signature, the Monaco City Council is preparing for the end of the health crisis by informing and raising awareness among its staff as of now, in particular to respect the barrier gestures which are mandatory on board vehicles. More info about the app: https://www.klaxit.com/
The signing took place on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 in the Town Hall in the presence of Mayor Georges Marsan, Marjorie Crovetto, Deputy Mayor in charge of the Living Environment, Environment and Sustainable Development, Catherine Dumortier, Project Manager at the Energy Transition Mission, Georges Gambarini, Head of the Smart City program within the Digital Services Department and Sébastien Perret, Section Head at the Planning and Mobility Department.
In the Principality, the project has been jointly carried out by the Mission for Energy Transition, the Department of Foresight, Urban Planning and Mobility and the Department of Digital Services.
