If you are studying in the city, you don’t need your own car, right? By foot, by bike, by train, by bus or by tram, you will get wherever you need (or want) to be. Most of the time that is, but every now and then a car can be useful.

Luckily, there is a special car sharing tariff just for you! Cambio CAMPUS gives you the freedom to use a car whenever you need one, without having to buy a car yourself.

 

Carpooling via Campus pool
