A TOOLKIT FOR SHARED MOBILITY IN EUROPEAN RURAL AREAS
Designing smart and sustainable shared mobility solutions in rural areas appears like opening the Pandora’s Box. At SMARTA 2, we share the sentiment but think that the bottle is rather half-full. For this reason, we have brought together in this document the experiences of our nine pilot sites and the legacy of the SMARTA project in an A-Z Toolkit that can enable mobility practitioners and civil society organisations to create solutions that correspond to their local settings. We called this endeavour the SMARTA 2 Toolkit.
Whether you are reading this from an Alpine or a Mediterranean village, there are three essential steps in designing smart and shared mobility solutions. While you might find yourself confident that you can skip some of these steps, we would advise you not to. Each of them is essential in designing a mobility solution that works, unless, of course, you want to play snake and ladders.
