Clean transport and last mile mobility

pjb Associates has recently put together a consortium including Cambridgeshire Cleantech and Oxfordshire Greentech which that submitted a bid to Innovate UK for funding to produce an action-orientated feasibility study that will identify the triggers, constraints and opportunities for developing innovative business models for “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS) options for accessing “clean” personalised transport solutions.

If successful, the focus of the project will be to develop two test bed locations along the extended Cambridge-Oxford high tech arc to actively encourage and test out new sustainable personalised transport solutions. The goal behind this is to enhance the limited conventional public transport in smaller towns and rural areas, using multiple mode solutions like shared taxis/mini-buses, on demand services, e-bike, e-cargo, e-scooter, electric cars and eventually shared autonomous vehicles based at  neighbourhood hubs.

The two test bed sites will be based in Ely in Cambridgeshire and Bicester in Oxfordshire. It will address the so-called “last mile/first mile” mobility issues that force people to use a car despite only being a few miles from their destination like railway stations, industrial estates, leisure and shopping centres.
