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 issues for citizens and short life cycle of vehicles.
The EU-funded project 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 more livable cities.
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. Recently, the project has been studying how to help cities to establish effective Public-Private Partnership, resulting in an interactive implementation guide for effective public-private collaboration in Smart Mobility.
