Increasing peoples' awareness and use of public transport through active mobility consultancy with focus on feeder systems
Eight rural and peripheral regions in Europe prepared, implemented and evaluated a local AMC-campaign. Existing approaches, such as the “active mobility consultancy” (AMC)-campaign implemented 2011 by BOKU in Lower Austria and campaigns carried out by partners such as UOY, VRS, AGENEAL and AUTh were further developed in SmartMove based on exchange of experiences and mutual learning. This included (i) the adaptation of the existing approach to recent developments and specific requirements of the implementing regions, (ii) the inclusion of Feeder systems into the AMC-campaign, and (iii) a common evaluation method. The result is an easy to use AMC-concept that can be applied by PT operators all over Europe. Thereby, the Project contributes to solve main problems of PT schemes in rural areas.
The key outputs of SmartMove:
Rupprecht Consult was be a horizontal partner and worked on different measures for quality assurance at all consultancy stages. RC was responsible for the concepts and content for training and knowledge transfer within the team, i.e. the implementation partners and, furthermore, the multipliers. Consequently, Rupprecht Consult participated in learning workshops at the transnational and local level as well as in transferability workshops. Contributions to Dissemination were also within the scope of RC's work.
