Why is it so difficult to improve mobility in rural areas?
Together with Nordjyllands Trafikselskab, Aalborg University and the Danish Engineer’s Association were G-PaTRA hosts for a one day conference about the challenges with rural transportation without relying on the car.
93 participants spend the entire day on the 1st of October 2018 on this topic.
In the first half day were the situation, the existing and upcoming transport opportunities presented and discussed.
After lunch, a “mobility bazaar” was carried out - a number of existing and new service providers where discussed with rotating groups of rural transport professionals.
Overall was the lessons learnt, that the availability and use of individual car transport is increasingly important, but also that a range of new service providers might have solutions that can change and reduce the need of carbon-based transport in rural areas considerably within a few years.
