New MOBI-MIX project to develop implementation models for MaaS and shared mobility
Many new urban mobility concepts (from e-scooters to shared mopeds and bikes) have become commercially viable in the last 3 years leading to a mass implementation across Europe. So far, the first generation of Shared Mobility and MaaS concepts has proven its attractiveness to users, but the lack of expertise and tools in place has led to suboptimal MaaS deployment, cancelled projects and unexpected drawbacks such as safety for citizens and short life cycle of vehicles. MOBI-MIX intends to facilitate the up-take of innovative transport solutions for them to fulfill their potential and have a positive impact in the CO2 reduction.
The project MOBI-MIX will develop and source state-of-the-art public-private collaboration models for more effective implementation of micromobility and MaaS solutions, ultimately leading to a more livable city. The objective is to reduce 365 tons of CO2 emissions by replacing 2.6 million fossil-fueled car-kilometers in the urban environment of 5 cities/regions: Rotterdam, Norfolk, Antwerp, Mechelen and Valenciennes.
Key outputs of MOBI-MIX will include:
- A handbook of the most promising PPP models for implementing Shared Mobility and MaaS
- A decision-making framework for urban mobility planners of cities to integrate public-private collaboration models in their urban mobility planning strategies to ensure future uptake of more green, shared urban mobility- and MaaS solutions.
- An insight paper with experts and key policymakers reflecting on project outcomes, lessons learned and best practices
