Bonuses for trips with fellow travelers

From 2023, drivers who register for the first time on carpooling platforms such as BlaBlaCar Daily for car sharing will be able to receive 100 euros, according to the newspaper 20 minutes. The government believes that such a measure will attract new drivers who are willing to share their car, as well as help fight environmental pollution.

To receive the bonus, drivers will need to complete ten trips. First, they will receive 25 euros for the first trip, and the remaining 75 if they make the remaining nine in the next three months. They will also be able to receive an additional 100 euros if they go on three long-distance trips.

So the French authorities want to increase the number of trips with fellow travelers from the current 900 thousand per month to 3 million in the near future. The Ministry of Transport has calculated that this will reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by 4.5 million tons per year.
