Carpooling in Luxembourg

The carpooling concept

The concept of carpooling? Share the journey and the costs with other people, going in the same direction as you, or even to the same destination.

Carpooling is a fast-growing mode of transport in Luxembourg. Rarely used a few years ago, car-sharing is now gaining in popularity. Especially at a time when petrol prices are soaring!

What are the advantages of carpooling? First and foremost, you save on gas and parking costs. Another advantage is that you have a more pleasant time, especially in traffic jams. It can also be a great way to meet other people and build a professional network.

What's more, you're helping to protect our planet's ecology! So why deprive yourself when you can travel in an eco-responsible and sustainable way?

In fact, several car-sharing websites have sprung up in Luxembourg. Today, they are registering more and more users, and therefore more and more itineraries.

CoPilote, a carpooling portal launched by the government

Copilote carpooling application luxembourg

Since May 2018, a new carpooling offer has been available in Luxembourg:, accessible from the Klaxit app .Supported by the public authorities, this carpooling portal aims to develop home-to-work journeys.

The aim is to increase vehicle occupancy rates. A Luxmobil study carried out in 2017 found a vehicle occupancy rate of 1.2 people. This left around 250,000 seats free to circulate in the Luxembourg capital every day. With a reduction in pollution and traffic jams, the principle is a winner.

The Ministry is also encouraging companies to encourage carpooling, by providing carpool parking spaces. As part of the launch of the project, companies were also asked to reimburse the cost of carpooling (2 euros per trip for a maximum of 2 trips per day).

How does work? Simply download the Klaxit app, Europe's most popular car-sharing platform for commuting. Registration is free. The driver indicates the route taken, the times and the price (10 centimes per kilometer maximum). Passengers then reserve their seats by paying online. This dynamic portal enables the driver and user to geolocate each other. The 2 parties can also rate each other.
