EIT Urban Mobility: MOBY, helping cities assess e-micromobility

With the MOBY (living lab e-micromobility) project, EIT Urban Mobility released a series of reports regarding e-micromobility.

Cities now count on the support of a framework to be used for the assessment of the current situation of e-micromobility in the cities. Furthermore, an extensive user survey was conducted in the cities of Munich, Copenhagen, Tel-Aviv, Budapest, Barcelona and Stockholm and data were collected for informing about the typical usage forms of e-micromobility, useful for decision makers and urban planners.

Best practices and results of e-micromobile integration potentials have been identified and analysed with calculations and visualisations. Proposals on how transport, and particularly public transport, can be strengthened and made more attractive if e-micromobility is integrated into the traffic systems of European cities in an appropriate way have also been put forward.

Specific safety aspects of e-micromobility, including an analysis and understanding of main safety problems and priorities have been established based on accident frequencies, severities and suitable measures and techniques/technologies for safety improvement were derived. Finally, a conference was organised by UnternehmerTUM on 12 November 2020 which disseminated results of the MOBY project.

All MOBY-related reports are now available

Overview of e-micromobility related conditions and constraints

The specific conditions and solutions in the field of e-micromobility have been mapped. The analysis consisted of two parts, first the regulatory, planning, financial conditions for usage of these new transport modes were assessed, then the mobility-related requirements including user needs and travel behaviour were discovered.

European City Dialogue on Micromobility

Organised as a conference of the innovation project MOBY, this publication summarises the conference European City Dialogue on Micromobility organised by UnternehmerTUM on 12 November 2020.

Living lab e-micromobility – MOBY Guideline of best practices, and results of e-micromobile integration potentials

In this report, an in-depth review of research and statistics to illustrate how e-micromobility has become an integral part of urban mobility systems. The report argues that e-micromobility should be seen as a new mode of transportation, that responds to widespread demand for multimodal urban transport. In this way, micromobility could constitute an important part of an attractive alternative to private motoring and fossil-fuelled vehicles.

In line with the above, this study provides examples of current best-practices of e-micromobility in European cities (including Tel Aviv), as well as examples of the problems and complaints that the principles of e-micromobility have been met. As a silver line, this report will present a toolkit for regulations, policies, etc. that will help release the potential of micromobility as a vital part of sustainable, intermodal urban transport.
