Many new urban mobility concepts (from e-scooters to shared mopeds and bikes) have become commercially viable in the last three years, leading to their 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 to fulfill their potential and have a positive impact in reducing carbon emissions. 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 tonnes of CO2 emissions by replacing 2.6 million fossil-fueled car-kilometres in the urban environment of 5 pilot cities/regions: Rotterdam, Norfolk, Antwerp, Mechelen and Valenciennes.
MOBI-MIX began in March 2020 and will culminate in September 2022.
The project receives 1.8 € million financial support from the ERDF.
