New business model for flexible mobility

The Flexible Mobility Centre, for planning and managing different transport services, is built upon the two axes of urban mobility: collective transport and flexible services. The center addresses the two main levels of urban mobility in a coordinated way, where both public (collective) and private components interact with each other: major transport axes and corridors on the one hand, and flexible/ride-sharing services on the other.

To achieve seamless integration between collective and shared mobility, the Flexible Mobility Centre works on three interconnected levels: collective transport, personal mobility and connected systems.

Its implementation on Elba Island, which will launch as a demo in October 2018, is targeted to the specific needs of small towns affected by tourist flow, such as the integration of last-mile solutions to access surrounding rural areas.

The ‘Elba Sharing Mobility Agency’ will launch to manage and coordinate different vehicle sharing services, acting as a ‘one-stop shop’ for information on public transport services on and from/to the mainland. The Elba Sharing Agency will be implemented and demonstrated as part of the CIVITAS (City Vitality and Sustainability) Destinations project (2016-2020), whereby six small-to-medium urban areas located in tourist islands introduce integrated packages of innovative mobility measures (for tourists and residents) within the framework of the SUMP (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan) development.
