SAM SHARED CAR

SAM is not a typical taxi, but fills the mobility gap where buses and trains do not operate. Therefore, SAM effectively complements and supplements existing public transit services over the long term. Thanks to SAM, going to the doctor, shopping or driving to the sports field is possible for everyone without their own car. The regional shared taxi is very well networked with around 3,000 stops in more than 60 communities in Eastern Styria.
