Despite the limits of the current public transport systems in EU prioritized areas, such as rural, remote and deprived urban areas, there are several initiatives that give way to new mobility options and innovative solutions, including the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and the involvement of individuals and communities as co-owners and producers.
The scope of this deliverable, final result of Task 3.2 (Analysis of case studies and best practices) within WP3 (Identification of new mobility options and business models), is to review relevant existing European and worldwide initiatives, research results, business cases and projects to identify innovative mobility options and analyse in detail their characteristics.
Specifically, the deliverable scrutinizes twenty handpicked transport solutions to understand their accomplishments (and limitations), analyse their business models, original management solutions as well as social and technological innovations.
Based on the information gathered from each case study, a cross-analysis has evaluated the different business models, the original management solutions, the social and technological innovations, and the organizational and operational frameworks. The outcome of such analysis allows to emphasize the advantages and limitations associated with each mobility solution and to identify the initiatives with the highest potential to be replicated in other regions/countries.
