As part of the POLIS project (funded by the Ministry of the Environment), the Municipality intends to promote car pooling for employees and students of organizations having mobility managers. A web portal created specifically for this purpose could considerably simplify the steps required to publish the trip effectively and to search for available lifts. AMI Ferrara has established an agreement with the Faculty of Engineering, to create a platform for corporate carpooling for local authorities only. This led to the involvement of various experts and to the first realization of a feasibility study and then to the actual implementation of the platform itself. We started by analyzing the real needs of users in the area, to be able to provide a system that meets the needs of potential users and then increase the likelihood that they use it with satisfaction and security. The platform has been online since June 2016 and the system test phase was launched, in which the mobility managers of the participating organizations participated: Ferrara University, AMI Ferrara, AUSL, the Municipality of Ferrara, the Province of Ferrara, Eni-Versalis and Basell (chemical industries in Ferrara), TPER, HERA group and Ospedale di Ferrara. The "production and maintenance" phase of the platform was then started, a phase entrusted directly to a spin-off of the Ferrara Faculty of Engineering (FancyPixel SRL). To further improve this platform, we want to implement several features identified in the software following the ideas and suggestions that emerged during various meetings, in which the mobility managers participated. Parallel to the development, management and dissemination of such software to the interested parties, the possibility of free parking for car pool crews in specially reserved spaces, close to the main entrances, in the parking lot of the Cona Hospital which will soon be regulated for a fee.
