The GECKO project is looking for New Mobility Stakeholders

09 May 2019

Will Mobility as a Service (MaaS) replace public transport? If not, what will the relationship be between them? What role should autonomous vehicles play in our cities? What effect will they have on pedestrians? How can we picture the use of drones in logistics? How should their use be regulated? How can passenger service be assured if we all use flexible mobility chains? What impact will this technical fragmentation have on passenger rights? These are some of the questions being addressed in the EU GECKO project.

To support creative new mobility solutions while ensuring maximum benefit to cities and citizens, appropriate regulatory framework conditions and cooperation is needed between public authorities and industry and between business and operators.

The goal of GECKO is to support authorities in developing the most appropriate regulatory framework and governance models for the transition to a new era of sustainable, cooperative, inclusive, competitive and interconnected mobility across all modes.

To do this, the project is soliciting input from relevant stakeholder groups for online and face-to-face input. A stakeholder group has been created, in order to better understand the issues faced by those involved with new mobility solutions or technologies – both from the technology side and as authorities that are being faced with new mobility technologies.

We’re looking for stakeholders who are facing (or have experienced) the challenges of introducing or regulating innovative mobility solutions, representing:

  • Policy makers and regulators who need to make decisions about where and how to allow/facilitate/support the implementation of new mobility solutions
  • Innovative technology providers or those who are planning or who currently operate new mobility services
  • Researchers, NGOs, consultants or other influencers with relevant experience or expertise

The group will require stakeholder involvement between autumn 2019 and spring 2021 – with occasional online interaction and surveys and possibly (up to) 3 face-to-face workshops.

The GECKO project will share with stakeholders its outcomes and findings, as they are developed. Stakeholders will, in turn, be part of shaping those outcomes by sharing their experience and knowledge.
