Urban mobility is becoming an issue of great importance in today’s society due to the increasing population movements towards big cities and the exponential growth of cities in developing countries. Today, urban mobility schemes are evolving faster than ever mainly due to social, economic and technological changes. The traditional choice between walking, taking public transport or buying a car is being extended with a wide range of new flexible mobility services, such as vehicle sharing and ride-hailing.
In this context, a new mobility paradigm is needed - from disconnected to complementing. Promoting more sustainable, affordable, equitable, and accessible mobility is crucial, where micromobility and shared mobility services increasingly complement public transport. The ultimate goal is to reduce dependence on single occupancy private vehicles.
MOLIERE will build the world's best open data commons for mobility services, the “Wikipedia of public transport and new mobility data”, a Mobility Data Marketplace (MDM) underpinned by blockchain technology, raising the profile, visibility, availability, and utility of geo-location data from GALILEO, and will test it to fuel and demonstrate a diverse set of concrete, highly relevant mobility scenarios and use cases where geo-location data is key, addressing the needs of cities, public transport authorities, mobility service providers, and end-users.
