The Partnership for Urban Mobility (PUM) has published a report which provides insight into the experience of new mobility services in Europe. Drawing from examples from cities in Europe as case studies, the report analyses the policy tools used by PUM partner cities, regions and national authorities to integrate and govern new mobility services.
The report investigates the regulatory framework needed for effective integration of new mobility services in the transport offer of cities and regions. As part of the EU Urban Agenda, the report aims to promote cooperation between Member States and European organisations to achieve a sustainable, innovative and economically powerful Europe.
The Partnership aims at:
- Promoting the involvement of cities in policy making and development, implementation and evaluation of more urban friendly European legislation.
- Guaranteeing better access to and use of European funds.
- Improving the European urban knowledge base and encouraging the sharing of best practice and cooperation between cities.
The participants were asked general information about traffic in their region which included modal share, demographics, congestion, average trip lengths, air quality and future plans of mobility. To contextualise the information, a questionnaire with questions about data protocols, availability of services like car sharing, bike sharing and e-scooters is included.
The PUM 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, Walk21).
