Online Convention on Regional Mobility beyond TEN-T
The European Green Deal, as communicated by the European Commission in December 2019, defines an accelerated shift towards smart and sustainable mobility as one of several 'deeply transformative policies'. According to the communication, 'achieving sustainable transport means putting users first and providing them with more affordable, accessible, healthier and cleaner alternatives to their current mobility habits.'
But how can users be put first in practice? By which means can attractiveness of public transport really be raised? And where does this shift have to take place - first and foremost in urban areas, rural areas or both?
The 'Online Convention on Regional Mobility beyond TEN-T' sheds light on practical examples of developing regional public transport in a way so that all inhabitants can benefit from the optimized TEN-T infrastrcuture, no matter where they live. In comparison with the current European Commission's deliberations on connected multimodal mobility, a discussion on strengthening the regional public transport systems shall arise.
