Burkardroth: car juggernaut for nine passengers

Mobility and traffic in the rural area are a major issue – this also applies to the district of bad kissingen. The market town of burkardroth is now backing a car-sharing project. "The project is not the burgerbus, which we are still pursuing", emphasizes daniel wehner (CSU), the 1. Mayor of the commune.

Car sharing: what options are there in the countryside??

"The car is intended for weekend games of soccer teams, for example, explains wehner. "So you don’t have to drive five or six cars anymore – but maybe just one next to the nine seater." This also had advantages for the environment. Another possible use is, for example, the joint outing of several couples who are friends. The opel can even be borrowed for several days – for a weekend trip, for example, or for a week’s vacation.

According to mikar gmbh, the municipality has no entrepreneurial or financial risk of its own in the process. The vehicles are fully financed by third-party funding for four years.
