In practice, to evaluate the costs associated with owning a vehicle with the “Zity savings simulator” just go to the specific website (https://zity.eco/it/simulateur-deconomies/) and answer some questions relating to mobility and driving habits. In less than 5 minutes, users will be able to find out if they can reduce their expenses by choosing shared mobility. At the end of the questionnaire, the user will see on the screen the amount they could save annually by adopting this mode of transport, instead of keeping a car owned, as well as the amount of CO2 emissions avoided. The savings simulator can already be used in the countries where Zity is currently present, namely Italy, Spain and France.
