A big day for a unique project – MoJo
Last Wednesday the first demonstration took place of a new mobility service at the Chalmers University of Technology campus. The purpose is to promote sustainable travel among employees and make the campus more attractive.
The service, to be launched this autumn, comprises four mobility hubs on the campus. It offers various means of transport such as electric bicycles, electric cars and public transport. Bookings are made easily and efficiently via a single app, EC2B.
A number of users selected from among the project participants took part in the demonstration. During a guided tour, they were shown where the mobility hubs are located and how the service will work.
“We’re in the final phase of developing the app, and participants who are already registered will soon have access to the service. We hope many employees at the campus will find out about the demonstration and sign up to test the service by registering as users,” says Rasmus Sundberg, project manager at Trivector.
The service is starting to be seen in the physical environment at the campus, where signs and cars are being placed at the four mobility hubs. Partners participating in the MoJo project will have access to the service.
The event marked an important step towards a physical launch where project partners, suppliers and users will be able to meet and see how this type of mobility service works.
The MoJo project is a collaboration between EC2B, Chalmers, Chalmersfastigheter, HSB, Akademiska Hus, Johanneberg Science Park and Smart Resenär i Sverige. The project is coordinated by EC2B and will take place from November 2019 to October 2021. The Swedish Energy Agency will provide just over SEK 1.6 million in funding. The mobility service was previously developed under the IRIS Smart Cities project funded through the Smart Cities & Communities Lighthouse project under the Horizon2020 programme.
