MOMENTUM published final project brochure

After several reviews, we are glad to announce that our MOMENTUM final brochure was recently published. It provides a short and light summary of the entire project with a focus on recommendations, the MOMENTUM decision-support tool, and the local experiences of the four MOMENTUM project cities of Regensburg, Leuven, Thessaloniki and Madrid. You can download the brochure here.

The document, which was written by POLIS Network and reviewed by Nommon, starts with a broad overview of emerging mobility solutions, followed by a section on the opportunities and risks of these mobility offers. Since the interest and support of emerging mobility solutions has significantly changed throughout the relatively short project period of three years, the final brochure also discusses if these solutions, like shared bikes or escooters, are a viable long-term alternative for other modes of transport.

The second chapter provides an overview on the transport modelling techniques used in the four MOMENTUM cities, followed by the explanation of the decision-support tool. This tool, which was mainly developed by CERTH in Thessaloniki and is available here, helps city administrations to plan the deployment of emerging mobility solutions in specific quarters. Thanks to its three different levels, each city can use to tool regardless of the level of data available to the respective authorities.

The following chapter depicts the four MOMENTUM cities and shares the success stories. For example, MOMENTUM significantly helped Leuven in the planning and deployment of mobility hubs. Thessaloniki profited from the close cooperation between the city and CERTH, thus the DST was used to plan the deployment of emerging mobility solutions.

Last, but not least, the main takeaways are listed in the last chapter. Recommendations focus on the importance of data collection as a first prerequisite for transport modelling. Based on the experience of the project partners, MOMENTUM highlights that emerging mobility solutions are a very volatile market, but also provide new opportunities to complement traditional public transport offers.
