The car fleet in Romania increased to over 8.2 million vehicles in 2018, but the road infrastructure is not keeping pace, according to the latest PwC Digital Auto Report study.
The company’s consultants also draw attention to the fact that the city of Bucharest has been for many years in the top of the most congested cities in Europe and the air particle level is double the maximum recommended by the World Health Organization. In this context, PwC recommends new transport solutions such as car sharing or ride hailing.
“The car fleet in Romania increased by 7.4% in 2018 according to official data, to over 8.2 million vehicles, but the road infrastructure is not keeping pace. For example, Bucharest, with about 1.4 million cars registered officially, without those in transit, is for many years in the top of the most congested cities in Europe, and the level of airborne particles is double the maximum recommended by the World Health Organization. In this context, new transport solutions are needed, an alternative being the models of alternative property, such as the subscription, rental, car sharing, ride hailing, ride sharing and micro mobility,” said Daniel Anghel, partner and leader of the fiscal and legal services, PwC Romania, in a statement quoted by Agerpres.
