The lack of sustainable mobility solutions in rural areas is a common problem with similar challenges in both Sweden, Latvia and many other EU countries. The countryside is car-dependent and accounts for a large part of the traffic that affects the environment and climate of both cities and entire regions. Not all citizens have the financial means to have a car for daily transport. To enable and provide mobility solutions in rural areas here is a need for collaboration between different actors, both public and private.

Expected results

The main result of SuRuMo is to develop  one cross border digital platform which can include various physical mobility solutions to be used by citizens and one tool for estimation of mobility patterns to be used by traffic planners to map areas where new mobility solutions can be introduced.

SuRuMo will apply and have a big focus on a participatory approach to better address local needs and strengthen local awareness and support for new mobility approaches. Conditions will be created for including a breadth of user groups and create opportunities for increased equality by giving more people access to sustainable and efficient transports.

Pilots including digital platform and physical mobility solutions will be designed, monitored and evaluated in new partnerships between municipalities, public transport companies, private market actors in cooperation with local target groups. The goal is that the actors and citizens involved in the pilots are positive to a continuation of the solutions after the project.
