Today we are discovering the project REGIO-MOB. Partners coming from Italy, Slovenia, Poland, Romania, Greece and the United Kingdom are looking for solutions on how to reduce carbon emissions linked to mobility.
Thanks to the exchanges and the shared learning process within the project REGIO-MOB, the partners expect to increase sustainable mobility in their regions by improving their policies.
In the interview, you can hear about how Region Lazio in Italy found inspiration amongst other European regions and started to put in place concrete improvements.
What have they achieved?
In big cities like Rome, mobility is a real challenge! Local authorities are looking to organise transport in an efficient and sustainable way. Thanks to the REGIO-MOB project Region Lazio found inspiration in Lubljana with their Park and Ride system. During a study visit, they learned how to link the city and the surrounding areas with different kinds of mobility (pedestrian, bicycle, e-cars, car sharing or private car).
As a result, they managed to involve relevant stakeholders in the Lazio Region and changed a call for proposal that allowed the city of Rome to get 20 million euros to develop the park and ride solution.

Another inspiring example is the good practice mentioned in the interview by the Slovene partner about the harmonised transport card in Andalusia, Spain. They managed to involve more than 200 municipalities in the process leading to a better harmonised system and even more users of public transport.
