LIMIT4WeDA: Light Mobility and Information Technologies for Weak Demand Areas

El projecte europeu LiMIT4WeDA ha treballat per donar resposta als problemes de mobilitat en àrees afectades per una baixa demanda de transport. Aquest tipus d’àrees urbanes o rurals es caracteritzen per un sistema públic de transport ineficient i, en conseqüència, un ús generalitzat del cotxe privat. Això redueix l’accessibilitat territorial alhora que implanta un sistema de mobilitat insostenible que discrimina les persones.

The project LIMIT4WeDA (Light Mobility and Information Technologies for Weak Demand Areas) deals with mobility in areas affected by weak demand of transport. Such urban or rural areas are generally characterized by inefficient public transport systems and consequently a widespread use of private car. This reduces the territorial accessibility while perpetrating a not sustainable mobilitysystem which discriminates people.

 

The project has elaborated solutions to make local public transport systems for weak demand areas more flexible and less expensive. The use of new technologies, the creation of networks, experimentation of light mobility, infomobility and intermodal transport for people, sensitization of decision makers at different levels, citizens awareness raising will be the means to succeed.

 

Nine partners from six countries of the MED area have been involved, representing a variety of local situations with common mobility problems at different level and in different socio-economic contexts. From Italy three partners have represented decision makers at the three institutional levels: regional (Lazio Region, lead partner), provincial (Province of Pavia) and municipal (Municipality of Perugia). From Cyprus local stakeholders have been involved by experts (Troodos Regional Tourism Board and Cyprus Center for European and International Affairs). From Spain BCNecologia, a public consortium dedicated to rethink cities in key of sustainability, has been involved.Transport innovation experts were from Malta (MIEMA) and Greece (BIC of Epirus), while the association of mountain regions (AEM) was from France.

 

LIMIT4WeDA is a project funded within the MED Programme with a budget of 1,2 Euro. The partners have developed different pilot experiences. One highlighted project is the ProntoBus in Perugia, an innovative service completely flexible on demand, with no fixed timetable nor fixed paths, operating with small buses, able to reach places not accessible by conventional buses and natural gas-fueled.
