Institutional Frameworks for Integrated Mobility Services in future cities - IRIMS
Research Project , 2015 – 2018

The project builds knowledge and proposes recommendations on how institutional frameworks can be modified to enable new, integrated mobility services capable of contributing to more sustainable travel in tomorrow’s cities. Integrated mobility services are argued as a new paradigm in which the traveler´s transport needs are fulfilled by a service integrating the entire transport system into an ecosystem. There are however a number of challenges to be met if such services are to become established, such as policy and regulatory changes.

An analytical instrument facilitates the identification of institutional barriers and enablers for integrated mobility services. Scientifically based recommendations are advanced in collaboration with relevant stakeholders. The project utilizes case studies of integrated mobility services that may come to dominate the future urban context in Sweden, and compares these with other European experiences. Hereby the project contributes with new knowledge that is in demand, nationally as well as internationally.
