|Coordinator||Trivector Traffic AB - Trivector Traffic AB, LUND|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 500 000|
|Project duration||December 2017 - November 2018|
Purpose and goal
In the project, a concept has been formulated for shared mobility services and MaaS for socially disadvantaged areas an "Inclusive MaaS" concept. The project has adopted an intersectional perspective to consider how different preconditions for mobility interact, for example, based on age, gender, socioeconomics and ethnicity. The aim has also been to create the prerequisite for the use of the concept in continuation of this project by establishing cooperation with relevant actors.
Expected results and effects
Preconditions for Inclusive MaaS have been defined in general terms and more specifically for booking and payment methods, costs and price model, vehicle / station location, vehicle type and communication. Implementation of an “Inclusive MaaS” concept in socially disadvantaged areas is intended to alleviate uneven distribution of accessibility between socioeconomically strong and weak groups and contribute to increased participation, inclusion and social capital in socially disadvantaged areas.
Planned approach and implementation
Research has been conducted on the preconditions for mobility and accessibility for residents in socially disadvantaged areas. Rosengård in Malmö has been used as case. Research has also been made of previous experiences of shared mobility services and MaaS with analysis of barriers and opportunities for the implementation of these services in areas such as Rosengård. In a workshop series, the preconditions for the concept "Inclusive MaaS" have been formulated together with relevant actors.
