Sustainable, accessible and space efficient mobility is a top priority in metropolitan regions, and one challenge is mobility to, from and within suburban regions.
People need to travel to their work, to schools and universities, and to other activities. As distances to rail stations are frequently beyond walking distance, and public transport often is operated at low frequency within these areas, this transport is done by car today.
Car travel generate both emissions and congestion. Recent developments with driverless vehicles open up for new opportunities, where driverless shuttles (small buses) can be used to complement and feed to public transport.
The partners in the LINC project has decided to grab these new opportunities.
