Mobility hubs are almost here!


Valenciennes Métropole launched a call for expression of interest in June 2021. Several candidates provided interesting options for the Mobility Hubs. This challenge-driven approach was a success, helping Valenciennes Metropole to identify the needs and design the optimal mobility solutions for the two pilots.

All the local partners are now working on building effective public/private partnerships to implement the projects and make the Mobi Hubs a reality.

Gender equality & Mobility

In other news, Valenciennes Métropole has signed in September 2019 the European Charter for Equality of Women and Men in Local Life. The institution is now engaged in implementing a plan to reduce inequalities among its work unit but also to ensure that gender equality is a component of all its actions. Mobility will be part of the Plan, as it is a key domain to address Gender equality issues.
