Changing habits, balancing the system, reducing consumption
For too long, mobility in soft modes has been almost forgotten during the urban and transport systems planning process due to a wide conviction that only motorised modes of transport were efficient enough to answer the travel demand.
The paradigm shifted and today walking and cycling have a great significance in short-distance journeys and has the main vehicle to access or regress to/from motorised modes of transport.
Promoting a healthier and balanced society requires having a more sustainable behaviour where sustainable mobility plays a major role.
Complementary, the promotion of sustainable mobility leads to achieve the goal of decarbonization through either the improvement of transport infrastructures or a change in people and institutions modal behaviour.
In recent times, TIS has been strengthening its experience in addressing the sustainable mobility issue, whether in the development of Mobility and Transport Plans (like the recent project PAMUS - Action Plan on Sustainable Urban Mobility), or through the development of Accessibility Plans for Everyone and execution plans for pedestrian and cycling networks.
It is also important to highlight the role of TIS in research projects for the European Commission, focusing on the promotion of sustainable transport modes through mobile apps and gamification.
TIS has the technical expertise to offer solutions that make you, your company and your city more efficient and sustainable.
