City administrations must reduce traffic and congestion and offer efficient and economically viable collective transport to achieve ever more pressing political and environmental objectives. To date all over the world, due to the low average filling rates slightly above the unit, almost 1.5 billion cars congest our roads and this number is expected to double by 2035, while over 2 billion people will migrate to metropolitan areas.
The European Environment Agency estimates that traffic congestion is responsible for the loss of GDP of 100 billion euros in the EU.
Conventional public transport is scarcely competitive and has low levels of efficiency, both for the same congestion generated by cars, and for a growing lack of public funding.
Our goal, with MVMANT, is to reduce the performance gap between individual transport (private car or taxi) and conventional public transport (bus), favoring the reduction of the number of circulating cars.
By increasing the vehicle load factor, the total kilometers traveled, the occupation of urban public spaces, then the consequent impacts on the environment are reduced.
On the other hand, the capacity to add residents from low-density areas to the nodes of public transport is increased.
This is why we work on two factors:
- A flexible transport model, characterized by predefined routes and stops on demand which is able to dynamically adapt to the demand. This will optimize the offer, reduce waiting time, travel time and operating costs
- A model of rewarding sponsorship and loyalty, in favor of mobility that reduces the individual use of the private car for travel in the city and in favor of mobility as a service.
This proactive and virtuous approach opens up to a sustainable economic model, where local economic operators are promoters of the system, thus supporting a new model for the use of the city becoming free from the use of private cars. Especially when going to the historic center, whose difficulty in access often represents a reason for lost revenue for local businesses.
