Insight into new mobility services: new EU report

19 March 2020


A new report providing insight into the experience of New Mobility Services in Europe has been published by the Partnership for Urban Mobility (PUM). The Partnership for Urban Mobility brings together five Member States, eight cities, two regions, the European Commission (DG REGIO, DG MOVE, DG ENV), the European Investment Bank, two leading European umbrella organisations (EUROCITIES, CEMR) as well as four further stakeholders (POLIS, UITP, ECF, and Walk21).

Drawing on examples from cities across Europe, the report explores the policy tools used by PUM partner cities, regions and national authorities to integrate and govern new mobility services as well as how they intend to achieve their wider policy goals with the help of these. The report investigates the regulatory frameworks needed for effective integration of new mobility services in the transport offer of cities and regions.

The Partnership for Urban Mobility is one of the partnership- agreed priority themes of the Urban Agenda for the EU. 

The Urban Agenda for the EU was officially established by the Pact of Amsterdam, agreed by the EU Ministers responsible for urban matters in May 2016.

The Urban Agenda aims to promote cooperation between Member States, cities, the European Commission, European organisations and other stakeholders in order to achieve a sustainable, socially inclusive, innovative and economically powerful Europe. The Urban Agenda sets out a new way of working together to stimulate growth, liveability and innovation in the cities, gain maximum benefits from their growth potential and successfully tackle current and future challenges. 

This new approach includes the creation of a range of European partnerships aimed at:

  • promoting the involvement of cities in EU policy making, and the development, implementation and evaluation of more ‘urban friendly’ European legislation (‘Better Regulation’);

  • ensuring better access to and use of European funds (‘Better Funding’);

  • improving the European urban knowledge base and stimulating the sharing of best practice and cooperation between cities (‘Better Knowledge Exchange')

The participants were asked general information about traffic in their city/region such as modal share, SUMP, demographics, measurements regarding congestion, average length of trips, the role of commuting, air quality and future plans for mobility. With the aim of contextualising this information, the he questionnaire also asked about data protocols, the availability of services such as car-sharing, ride hailing, bike sharing and e-scooters
