The Urban Transports Community aims to mainstream good mobility practices developed in the frame of the Interreg MED Programme. To achieve this goal, a series of thematic webinars will be conducted under the name “Implementing Sustainable Mobility in the Mediterranean”, addressing the 5 thematic focus of the urban Transport Community focus on the Mediterranean area: shared mobility, soft mobility, Data & ICT for smart traffic management, mobility in tourist areas and new planning approaches to mobility. The webinars will include presentations of concrete solutions developed by pioneer cities. Target audience are all public entities with competence in urban mobility, which are eligible to apply for participation in the public call.
The keynote presentation will be exploring the concept of shared mobility. Arch. Aurora Pilinçi, mobility expert, will introduce the importance of shared mobility solutions in nowadays, as long as shared-use mobility services can: reduce traffic congestion, mitigate various forms of pollution, reduce fossil fuel consumption, and improve efficiency of transportation means.
Shared mobility is a term used to describe transportation services that are shared among users, including public transit; taxis and limos; bike sharing; car sharing (round-trip, one-way, and personal vehicle sharing); ridesharing (car-pooling, van-pooling); ride sourcing/ride-splitting; scooter sharing; shuttle services; neighbourhood jitneys; and commercial delivery vehicles providing flexible goods movement. Hence, what people need is to radically rethink the problem by examining not only the automobile itself, but also how it is used in cities (where most are currently living).
