Vehicle occupancy rate
The vehicle occupancy rate is the number of passengers in a vehicle during a trip. This rate can be expressed as the number of persons per vehicle or by the percentage of occupied seats, when referring to public transport.
The higher the rate, the higher the energy and economic efficiency of this means of transport, and the fewer vehicles will be needed on the transport channels to transport the same number of people.
