Through public consultations, we introduced to this strategic document the aspect of legal regulations for shared mobility, as well as issues related to the practical side of digitizing mobility services.
The National Urban Policy 2030 (further called as KPM) is a document prepared by the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy, the essence of which is to face the challenges of urban development and build conditions for strengthening the capacity of cities for sustainable development and improving the quality of life of their inhabitants.
KMP outlines the following challenges:
- ensuring spatial and aesthetic order
- preventing the processes of chaotic suburbanization
- strengthening the cooperation of local governments
- reducing the negative impact of climate change
- improving the quality of the natural environment
- ensuring a sustainable and integrated system of urban mobility
- improving road safety
- improvement of housing accessibility
- improving the investment capacity of cities
- increasing the use of social potential
- accelerating the digital transformation of cities
The “urban mobility” challenge (no VI) has been recognized as one of the most urgent for which some relevant actions should be taken in the coming years.
As a result of our input to the process of public consultations, the National Urban Policy 2030 has considered the role of new mobility as follows:
“In recent years, the transport industry has undergone rapid changes, both in terms of technology and in terms of shared mobility services and micromobility. Services based on the principles of the sharing economy and the concept of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) are gaining popularity. Shared mobility is an emerging area that continues to evolve and change. Due to the increasing popularity, sharing services and the use of the MaaS concept should be taken into account in the multimodal transport system as a support for sustainable mobility, allowing to shape urban spaces based on the needs of the residents”.National Urban Policy 2030 (KPM)
Moreover, KPM confirmed the following activities for the development of shared mobility:
- the legal regulation of shared transport (or vehicle)
- open data required by both public and private mobility service providers
- evaluation of the regulations for micromobility
- adopting Sustainable Urban Logistics Plans (SULP)
- evaluation of the regulations for autonomous vehicles
- substitution of the parking ratio for construction objects with places for car sharing systems
On June 14th, 2022, the Polish Council of Ministers adopted a resolution on the adoption of the National Urban Policy 2030. The document formulates solutions and defines planned actions of the government administration in the legal, financial and organizational areas for sustainable urban development.
