Finding ways to use vehicles collectively with the aim of reducing climate impact and better utilize centrally located property, currently used as parking spaces, is a growing trend that urban planners throughout Europe are working to develop. In Gothenburg the concept EC2B has been successfully implemented in the newly built Housing Association Brf Viva, as part of the EU-project IRIS Smart Cities. In the project MoJo the service will be developed further.
The goal is to demonstrate the concept in close cooperation with service providers, property owners and employers for a year and a half. In a first phase, between 300-500 users will have access to the service, which will include physical resources such as electric bikes and cars (including the already existing electric car-pool Move About) at a number of hubs located on campus, as well as access to public transport. The project will also prepare for a possible commercial procurement of a joint mobility service in the area when the project ends.
As partner in Mojo you will be offered to test the mobility service.
The project MoJo is a collaboration between EC2B, Chalmers University of Technology, Chalmersfastigheter, Akademiska Hus, HSB, Johanneberg Science Park and Smart Resenär i Sverige. It is coordinated by EC2B and goes on between November 2019 and June 2021. The Swedish Energy Agency is contributing with just over SEK 1.6 million. More information about planned schedule and implementation of the tests will be available in February 2020.
