Main project results:

Increased awareness of the importance of sustainable mobility among employers and employees and the relevant paperwork connected with the procedure for obtaining a special sustainable mobility certificate; design of methodology and development of sustainable mobility plans for organizations that employ a large number of people and are located at high traffic density junctions; trialling of a sustainable mobility solution involving dynamic shuttle transportation for commuters in the Ljubljana Urban Region; formulation of recommendations for the relevant authorities regarding the strategic directions in the field of sustainable mobility, and drawing up of proposals for improving and upgrading the existing Integrated Transport Strategy of the Ljubljana Urban Region.

Project summary:

The project addresses the challenge of sustainable mobility at high-volume traffic locations, i.e. the Ljubljana Urban Region with the capital city of Ljubljana which is the primary destination of daily migration flows in Slovenia. Ljubljana is home to over 220,000 jobs, which accounts for over 25% of all jobs in Slovenia; as a result, over 120,000 people flock to Ljubljana daily from elsewhere. The Ljubljana Urban Region has become the most congested area in Slovenia recording the largest negative externalities of transport, which underlines the structural challenges of sustainable mobility in Slovenia. The project addresses sustainable mobility challenges in Slovenia (focusing particularly on Ljubljana), including the number of passengers in urban and road public transport that has been declining since 2017, a 41-percent drop in passengers carried by rail and a 10-percent increase in the number of passenger cars over the last decade. It further addresses the share of carpooling that stands at 7% and is lower than the EU average, and tries to come up with solutions for Ljubljana which is the busiest traffic hub in the country. The main goal of the project is to limit the negative environmental externalities resulting from unsustainable forms of mobility. To this end, the project aims to develop mobility plans for sustainable mobility management in high-traffic locations and through improved sustainable mobility management in Slovenia.
