Hanoi e-mobility for last-mile connectivity
The demonstration project will focus on boosting the ridership and effectiveness of the currently running BRT and the forthcoming metro rail. The project will be a win-win for both public transport and e mobility. A technical support team will design and develop vehicles that are tailored for the local context and operated under the oversight of the local public transport operator and the city of Hanoi.
Smart services, fleet bundling, E-scooter GPS positioning that support eco-routing will also be part of the project (SOL+ MaaS App). The demonstration project will have a high potential to not only make emobility attractive but also reduce the GHG emissions from transport and increase the share of public transport use.
The demonstration will be conducted in phases. For the first phase, there will be a trail with 50 shared e-scooter to test the sharing system to facilitate the traveling from BRT stop to a shopping mall and vice versa. There will be periodically assessment on the system to see what is good, what needs to be improved for the better pilot. After that the sharing system will be replicated to other locations in the city, probably connecting the Metro terminal with residential areas.
Test category: The demonstration of e-mobility solutions for last-mile connectivity will involve simulations, tests in controlled environments, and testing under real operational conditions. These technologies will be assessed as part of the activities.
