Shared Mobility helps in Coronavirus Crisis

We are in uncharted waters as a country.  During this crisis, CoMoUK is engaging with the UK, Scottish and Welsh governments to stress the societal and climate crisis benefits that shared transport brings and the unprecedented impact this will have on the sector. Shared mobility providers are responding to the crisis by providing essential transport services for NHS, care workers and food delivery services. Here are the examples we are aware of so far:

SHARE-North

ShareNorth Project accelerating growth of Shared Mobility

CoMoUK is a part of the Share-North project working with EU partners from 2019-2021 to raise the profile of shared mobility solutions. The aim of the project is to utilise expertise from both sides of the North Sea to develop, promote and assess the impacts of car clubs, bike share, 2+ ride-sharing and other shared transport options. In 2020 CoMoUK will focus on two key areas: The first is engaging key stakeholders to take a Shared MObility pledge - a commitment to one or more specific actions to help to overcome barriers to the development of shared transport options. Secondly, we will also be working with partners to create mobility hubs in targeted areas to reclaim as kerbs space for sustainable travel modes and improved public realm living. If you are interested in learning more about SHARE-North you can do so here and you can find out the areas the project covers here .
