Toute la journée
Rural public transport services in Europe are under pressure, due to a combination of factors including austerity measures, demographic change and poor connectivity in terms of transport and telecommunications infrastructure. The absence of a range of mobility services has resulted in rural areas becoming highly car-dependent, with the inevitable outcome that those without cars are dependent on others for rides, leading to reduced possibilities to actively participate in society.
Save the Date for The 1st SMARTA Workshop – “Time to rethink rural mobility” – on the 30st and 31st of January 2019 in Brussels, Belgium. This is the first of a series of events organized by the SMARTA consortium and will focus on showcasing innovative, tested solutions from European rural areas, as well as on the analysis of the elements that drive successful rural mobility initiatives, ranging from social aspects, policy, financing to ICT solutions.
The event is by invitation only so please don’t hesitate to contact the SMARTA consortium at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to participate.

SMARTA is a two-year project that focuses on how to exploit existing mobility policies and solutions in European rural areas and explore ways to support sustainable shared mobility interconnected with public transport.
