The latest ITF study shows that mobility demand in France's third city can be met through shared mobility and public transport, reducing private vehicles to only 5% of the modal share. The report examines how new shared services can change mobility in the Lyon Metropolitan Area.
It presents simulations for five different scenarios in which different shared transport options replace private cars in the metropolis of Lyon. The simulations provide insight into how shared mobility can reduce congestion, transport greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) and free public space. The analysis also looks at the quality of services, the costs and citizens' access to opportunities. The report also examines the interaction of shared mobility services with public transport and the optimal operational conditions for the transition.
The simulations provide insight into how shared mobility can reduce congestion, CO2 emissions and free public space. The analysis also looks at the quality of services, the costs and citizens' access to opportunities. The interaction of shared mobility services with public transport and optimal operational conditions for the transition are also being investigated.
The findings provide decision-makers with evidence to weigh the opportunities and challenges of new shared transport services. The report is part of a series of studies of shared mobility in different urban and metropolitan areas. Shared mobility in this study refers to optimized on-demand transport services that are shared between users.
The report on the Lyon Metropolitan Area is part of a series of studies of shared mobility in different urban and metropolitan contexts. This is the first report from the International Transport Forum (ITF) on shared mobility, which also examines the use of shared services through carpooling. Previous ITF studies have shown that shared mobility has the potential to offer citizens a flexible and comfortable mode of transport while reducing congestion and CO2 emissions.
International Transport Forum
The International Transport Forum is an intergovernmental organization with 60 member states. It acts as a think tank for transport policy and organizes the annual summit of transport ministers. ITF is the only global agency to cover all modes of transport. The ITF is politically autonomous and administratively integrated with the OECD.
