SOLUTIONSPlus and MOBI-MIX organised a comprehensive online workshop on the 5th & 6th of May 2022 to exchange experiences on shared e-mobility. Over the course of two mornings, the event gathered European frontrunners in the field, including 13 cities and local authorities and several public transport and micro-mobility operators.
The first day brought cities to the centre of the stage. Cities like Rotterdam, Hamburg, Paris, Oslo, and Madrid addressed the potential benefits and central challenges of disseminating shared e-mobility services (MaaS). These included regulations about permitting, occupancy of public space/zoning, parking policy, and enforcement - all common issues experienced by cities worldwide.
Cities currently struggle with what was once seen as an innovative and refreshing addition to their mobility ecosystem but are now bringing a series of unwanted consequences that local authorities must address, intensified due to a spike in usage during the COVID-19 pandemic. The day wrapped up with the presentation of the City of Bremen's experience with carsharing and the SHARE-North Project.
On the second day, public transport operators took the wheel to discuss the integration of shared e-mobility services with the transport system. Companies mixing e-mobility services in their portfolio like HOCHBANN and SBB, as well as one of the leading MaaS operators In Europe, TIER, provided inspiring presentations and insights about a successful digital integration within a Sustainable Mobility ecosystem.
The usage of data for cooperation between cities and private operators was presented by Bax & Company, which showcased the MObility DEcisions framework (MODE). Last but not least, good practices for the physical integration of shared e-mobility services were presented by Flemish carsharing network Autodelen within the framework of the eHUBS project.
This workshop experienced a high level of participation and engagement from the attendees. Now, the videos, as well as the presentations, are freely available online for everyone to access!
