Universities have great responsibility in mobility planning and management, but the scope of their actions is constrained by the campuses, and mobility due to university activity goes beyond the campus boundaries.
The university management has no authority in the field of transport services & infrastructure. So, how to reach the campus is not a question that university government bodies can solve, and the involvement of the local authorities and transport agencies is required.
City councils, regional and national authorities, transport companies and companies providing mobility solutions, as well as representatives from different user groups, such as university trade unions, student councils or NGOs, are key stakeholders whose participation is essential.
In this context, our deliverable “Guidelines for the Cooperation of Universities & Local Stakeholders” aims to support universities in fostering cooperation on mobility issues, driving the implementation of sustainable mobility policies among the public authorities and transport agencies to improve access to the campuses. These policies will benefit not only the university communities, but also the local communities because they will influence the mobility of our cities.
