The demonstrated mobility services will address the mobility needs that are not covered by traditional means of public transport, aiming at reducing car dependency and usage. A bonus system that will also be implemented to further push users towards sustainable travel habits. The project will furthermore clarify the climate impact of exploitation options by the means of a novel CO2 calculation tool, while banks and brokers will develop business practices with the help of accommodation cost estimates; including time budget and carbon footprint.
