Sustainable Mobility Systems Södertälje
The project aims to create and deploy mobility services, show scaling effects and develop business models. Show that mobility services can reduce the use of private cars.
The objective and purpose of the project
This project is intended to develop, demonstrate and evaluate a multimodal mobility service for passengers to, from and within Scania in Södertälje. The mobility service will be cloud-based and multi-modal including: internal taxis, mini buses, Scania Job Express, SL buses on routes crossing the area as well as electric bicycles.
The project will be carried out as a collaboration with partners from industry, academia and the public sector including: Scania, Veridict, Integrated Transport Research Lab (ITRL) KTH, Integrated Product Development (KTH), Industrial Economy (KTH) and Stockholms Public Transport Authority (SL).
The preliminary timeline for the project is June 1 2017 until 31 May 2019. The work will be conducted in the following work packages: Project management; User studies and 'set-up' of the mobility service; Connection of vehicles; Application/system design and deployment/launch; Business model analysis; and Sustainable society contribution.
The goal with this service is to provide a cost-effective alternative to the private car and to improve the traffic situation in Sodertalje whilst creating more sustainable mobility behavior among users. The transition to mobility as a service can contribute to the balance and synchronization of several means of transport leading to large synergy benefits and efficiency savings. The negative effects of private car use are reduced when the percentage of shared transport services increases.
