Integrating low-carbon transport in cities
The Mobi-Mix partners are working to decarbonise road transport by making it easier for innovative businesses to implement shared mobility and MaaS solutions!
Mobi-Mix is an Interreg 2 Seas-funded project, that will run until September 2022, led by the City of Rotterdam.
Cars are still responsible for around 12% of EU's total CO2 emissions. We need new more sustainable, multimodal and intelligent transport systems. Two emerging trends that could be part of the solution are shared vehicles and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS).
So far, the first generation of Shared Mobility and MaaS concepts have proved popular with users but as with most new technology, there have been some significant and unexpected drawbacks, such as short life cycle of vehicles and safety issues for citizens. This has lead to suboptimal deployment and cancelled projects. Cities do not yet have the expertise and tools in place to facilitate this implementation of the private sector in such a way that the new mobility solutions fulfil their potential.
The MOBI-MIX partners are working to decarbonise road transport (cars in particular). Within the project, they will facilitate the private sector to more effectively implement Shared Mobility solutions (e.g. e-bikes, e-scooters, shared mopeds, docked bikes, shared cars) and MaaS solutions (the integration of various forms of transport services into a single mobility service accessible on demand).
The aim is to reduce 365 000 kg of CO2 emissions by replacing 2.6 million fossil fuel-powered car kilometres in the urban environments of five regions in the 2 Seas area.
