Welcome to G-PaTRA's webspace. G-PaTRA is a project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020.

G-PaTRA – Green Passenger Transport in Rural Areas – is a consortium of 13 partners from across Europe who have been awarded funding by the European Union Interreg North Sea Region programme to take forward a project on green transport in rural areas.

The project, which will run until 2023, is led by RGU working in collaboration with partners from UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Belgium. It will promote green transport and mobility by enhancing the capacity of authorities to reduce CO2 from personal transport in remote, rural and island areas. It will embed more zero emission vehicles in rural transport systems and improve available passenger transport resources.

“Rural public transport is high carbon, subsidy intensive and struggles to provide a viable alternative to the car,” said David Gray, Professor of Transport Policy at RGU’s School of Creative and Cultural Business, who is one of the researchers leading the project.

“Together with urban transport carbon reduction strategies rarely being transferrable to rural areas, innovations in green rural transport are sorely needed to help governments meet ambitious carbon reduction targets.”
