Feasibility studies

The 11 feasibility sites have different characteristics and needs, thus allowing the investigation of sustainability aspects, environmental effects and social impacts of the proposed flexible transport solutions in a global manner.

The overall training, expertise knowledge and best practices transferred to the partners through the workshops and training courses was applied by partners locally to realize the most suitable flexible mobility services for their areas and context.

In general, activities included:

  • the analysis of site characteristics of the existing mobility demand and services offer and of the accessibility
  • the data collection and analysis of citizens and area needs, current environmental impact, operational, financial and organisational constraints
  • the definition of the most suitable mobility service schemes for improving and extending the services accessibility and reducing the environmental impacts
  • the design of the studied flexible transport services
