The project has contributed to: - make housing construction easier - give residents increased mobility. Car as a service makes it possible for residents to better control their travel costs and reduces the need to spend money to access a car. The solutions implemented lowers cost barriers to using public transport when also travelling by car on some journeys. - Reduce climate emissions.
Planned approach and implementation
Parking requirements was at the start of the project a frequently debated issue and a barrier to housing construction. During seven years the consortium including private housing developers, public authorities as well as specialist mobility advisors has sucessfully worked together. During this period of time several local authorities in Sweden has removed minimum parking requirements implementing mobility requirements. The work carried out illustrates that successful implemention of a new mobility approach to parking provision requires cooperation between stakeholders.
