By supporting shared mobility, we support sustainable cities
The report and guidebook on the Polish shared mobility market published in July 2019 has caused a lot of interest in terms of what shared mobility is, and how it can help solve the problems of today's cities struggling with high motorization rates, traffic congestion, poor air quality or allocating too much space for road and parking functions. Report: “Close to a breakthrough” - download here (in Polish only).
In December 2019 we published a list of 10 proposals that will help Polish cities to accelerate the transformation towards more sustainable mobility ecosystems. Please find the proposals summarized below and available for download (as a separate document) at the bottom of the page.
#1: allowing shared mobility to use selected bus-lanes
#2: allowing shared mobility to access restricted traffic zones and low emission zones
#3: waived or reduced parking fees for shared vehicles in municipal paid parking zones
#4: dedicated parking spots and areas for shared vehicles
#5: ensuring order in public and common space by creating Mobility Hubs
#6: willingness of public transit authorities to integrate with MaaS platforms (Mobility-as-a-Service)
#7: equal and non-discriminatory access to the share mobility market for many operators
#8: regulating the legal status of an electric kick scooter and PLEV (personal light electric vehicles)
#9: friendlier taxes for shared mobility services as an incentive for sustainable mobility
#10: shared mobility as new, separate category of transport in traffic law
