Delivering shared mobility solutions: cities needed to pilot shared mobility pledges

20 March 2019

The Shared Mobility Masterclass on 22nd February in Leicester was an opportunity for local authorities to get together and discuss the practical steps to take in delivering shared mobility solutions. Importantly, the conference was a prelude to the SHARE-North programme with CoMoUK as partner in the North Sea region Shared Mobility project. CoMoUK is inviting cities and regions to volunteer to become pilot areas for the shared Mobility Pledge. We want to work more intensively with stakeholders in two or three areas to create a common vision and action plan. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact [email protected]

The objectives of the project are manifold: resource efficiency, improving accessibility (including non-traditional target groups), increased efficiency in the use of transport infrastructure, reduction of space consumption for transport, improving quality of life and low carbon transport. Living labs will integrate modern technology with activities to support changes in mobility behaviour.

As part of the wider project, CoMoUK are sharing ideas from EU partners specifically to develop a Shared Mobility Pledge programme with local authorities in to help them delivering shared mobility solutions. CoMoUK will work with a range of stakeholders to identify barriers to growth and success. These will take the form of pledges which together will make the Shared Mobility Action Plan. 

The final session of the day revolved around identifying solutions to the barriers in delivering a Shared Mobility outcome. These outcomes focused on what is to come in Shared Mobility - from delivering Mobility Hubs (another work stream for the Share-NORTH programme) to electric vehicle car clubs and integration. The workshop allowed participants to discuss the solutions to the barriers in delivering these shared mobility outcomes. 

The main themes discussed were around securing political support, gaining funding and stakeholder support as well as allocating street space and addressing social inclusion. A full write up of the session is available from CoMoUK.
