On April 26 ITRL discussed in a seminar at Fores the challenges of integrating and scaling up shared mobility and the role of the private sector in its development.

During the seminar, Marcel Kroeze, head of Scania Sustainable City Solutions, presented Scania’s new mobility service for employees commuting to and moving around Scania campus in Södertälje. The service aims at freeing the area from some privately owned cars. In time, Scania wants to connect its service with other systems, public transport as well as car sharing.

ITRL’s research provides input in how to make shared mobility accessible and usable and the potential for people to adopt it. ITRL also focuses on the contribution of shared mobility to sustainability.

Anna Pernestål Brenden (ITRL) discussed the future potential and challenges for mobility as a service while keeping in focus sustainability. As she pointed out, “If we make it easy to travel then we are going to travel more, but how sustainable is it?”.

Kristoffer Tamsons (Traffic Commissioner for Stockholm County) and Boel Godner (Chairman of the board, Södertälje Municipality) shared their views on how politicians can contribute to the development of sustainable mobility.

All speakers agreed that shared mobility was the way forward but that to create sustainable mobility it was necessary to tailor solutions to the environment since there is not one sustainable solution that is going to fit all situations.
