Cities are home to more than 70% of the EU population, and account for approximately 85% of the EU's gross domestic product (GDP).
In many cities, the growing demand for mobility leads to unsustainable situations: severe traffic congestion, bad air quality, noise nuisance and high CO2-emissions. That is why urban mobility is an important item on the agenda of national governments, and a key point for the European
Panteia is a partner for local, regional, national and international organisations that are facing the problems of increasing urbanisation. Focusing on the collective mobility interests, we provide organisations with information on urban mobility issues and challenges. We also work with them to turn these challenges and pieces of information into innovative, creative mobility solutions.
Some of Panteia's services in the field of urban mobility:
Development of mobility policy
One of the major challenges is to meet travellers' changing quality needs, while at the same time improving the cost-effectiveness of transport. Another important issue is how to realise the social, enabling function of public transport as effectively and efficiently as possible. In this regard, exploring innovative and sustainable mobility solutions and investigating possibilities to combine several transport streams is essential.
Its position as an independent, strategic knowledge partner allows Panteia to support governments and carriers to shape and carry out public transport policy. We provide support by collecting and analysing policy-relevant information, and by contributing to the development of innovative solutions, strategies, plans, visions and policy. We also support the monitoring, evaluation and adjustment of public transport policy.
Policy makers are faced with the challenge of structuring mobility policy in such a way that it is not only effective - so that policy goals are met - but also affordable and controllable. Rates are a current issue in e.g. public transport, target group transport and taxi transport. Panteia supports governments and carriers in the development of price policies.
Target group transport
Target group transport is an umbrella term for several types of transport, such as transport of disadvantaged groups (in accordance with the Social Support Act WMO, or Valys transport for disabled persons), transport covered by health care insurance, transport of students, and seated patient transport. Compared to regular public transport, target group transport is relatively expensive for users, which is why options to carry out this type of transport more efficiently are being investigated. Panteia has knowledge and experience, in the area of transport as well as in the field of care and well-being. This makes Panteia an excellent partner to support the development of policy with regard to target group transport.
