Baltic Sea region transitioning into eco-friendly autonomous last mile public transportation

Public transport is not as flexible and accessible as private cars are in the Baltic Sea region. The project works towards increasing the attractiveness of public transport by improving offered services and introducing automated driverless electric minibuses, especially for the first and last mile of the journey. It proposes recommendations for environmentally friendly and smart automated public transport and guidelines on the organisational set-up.

Priority 3 - Sustainable transport, Environmentally friendly urban mobility. Project budget EUR 3.7 M€
