RE-ROUTE: Enhancing Multi-Modal Mobility Integration for Sustainable Urban Transport
With 70% of the EU population residing in urban areas, a figure projected to reach 84% by 2050, cities face critical challenges related to air quality and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The transport sector alone accounted for 27% of total EU GHG emissions in 2019, with road transport responsible for approximately 72%. To tackle these issues, cities are prioritizing public and non-motorized transport options to establish safe, affordable, accessible, and sustainable transportation systems.
RE-ROUTE is an international, interdisciplinary project that aims to enhance multi-modal mobility integration through distributed and localized decision-making at the network edge. By facilitating real-time data sharing, decentralized decision-making, and localized networks, RE-ROUTE seeks to develop an integrated Multimodal Intelligent Transport System (M-ITS). This system, based on the concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS), promotes on-demand accessibility to various transportation modes, including both motorized and non-motorized options, as well as private and public systems.
The project brings together institutions with complementary expertise to foster research, knowledge transfer, and career development. Through RE-ROUTE, evidence-based policies can be formulated, physical infrastructure can be improved, and a seamless multimodal mobility system can be realized. Ultimately, RE-ROUTE aims to address the pressing challenges of urban transport in the EU by promoting sustainable practices and leveraging technological advancements for the benefit of cities and their residents.
