|GP: ADD HOME - Mobility Management for housing areas - from car-dependency to free choice - Regional|
ADD HOME aims to reduce transport needs and is fostering a modal shift from car-trips to energy saving modes especially starting from residential areas.
The approach to tackle the current energy intensive mobility patterns of residential areas includes three levels:
1) legal and regulatory settings will be reshaped to enable sustainable mobility before planning new residential areas.
2) the accessibility of new residential areas and each household will be refocused from the focus on private car parking lots to more energy saving modes of transport.
3) mobility patterns and habits will be reorganised by mobility-services that bundle trips, shift trips and substitute them.
The cooperation of municipalities and housing companies/neighbourhood administrations will create liveable housing areas that enable residents to freely choose their transport mode. The project will influence the life of residents towards a more ecological, economical and social way of living.
