Project - Mobility Opportunities Valuable to Everybody

Description


Description (EN): (Semi)-rural areas are often excluded from new or green mobility initiatives like car and bike sharing, Uber and large scale 0-emissions transport. Long distances and too few users make these too costly or simply not feasible, so many people use cars. Those who cannot afford/use cars are less likely to get a job or will leave to go to cities. This results in a vicious circle making these areas less attractive for business, or partnerships with big companies from the transport sector. Local authorities in turn often struggle in finding the capacity in staff and financing for green and flexible solutions, which remain heavily subsidised and are not always efficient: an empty electric bus does not reduce overall emissions, and the users’ needs are still not answered. To solve these issues MOVE will take on a new approach in developing innovative and sustainable mobility initiatives through co-creation, bringing together local authorities, knowledge centres, local economic players and (temporary) inhabitants. MOVE will use local specificities to create practical solutions in 4 pilots based on unlikely combinations, with tangible business plans, to be implemented, tested and evaluated. This aims at increasing accessibility, reducing individual cars use, emissions and costs. MOVE will share its best practices in sustainable mobility and governance to increase take-up in other regions and support the greening of the transport sector and stimulate rural areas in the NSR as a whole.
Expected Results (EN): Indicator: Reducing the use of private cars in local mobility streams. Target (Unit): 10 % reduction of the number of single local private cars trips of target groups individuals. Definition: Based on the current car trips of the target groups in the partner regions, the project will reduce the number of single trips by 10 %. Baseline will be set at the start of the project. Indicator: Increase in the usage of sustainable mobility solutions. Target (Unit): 20 % increase in Number of passengers. Definition: Based on the data collected from the standing mobility solutions, the project will increase their usage by 20%. Number of passengers at project start will be used as baseline 0. Indicator: Increase social integration through mobility Target (Unit): 20 % increase of yearly travel in Km using sustainable mobility solutions. Definition: Based on the current distances using mobility services performed by the target groups (elderly, mobility-poor, isolated communities), the project will increase their yearly travels in km by 20%. Baseline will be set at the project start.
