Sustainable Mobility Services Södertälje

Aim and main expected results

This project is intended to develop, demonstrate and evaluate a multimodal mobility service for passengers to, from and within Scania in Södertälje, Sweden. The mobility service will be cloud-based and multi-modal including: internal taxis, mini buses, Scania Job Express, SL buses on routes crossing the area as well as electric bicycles.

The goal with this service is to provide a cost-effective alternative to the private car and to improve the traffic situation in Sodertalje whilst creating more sustainable mobility behavior among users. The transition to mobility as a service can contribute to the balance and synchronization of several means of transport leading to large synergy benefits and efficiency savings. The negative effects of private car use are reduced when the percentage of shared transport services increases.

The work will be conducted in the following work packages: Project management; User studies and 'set-up' of the mobility service; Connection of vehicles; Application/system design and deployment/launch; Business model analysis; and Sustainable society contribution. The researchers at the Integrated Product Development unit are mainly engaged in the work package User studies and 'set-up' of the mobility service.
