Stockholm Royal Seaport contributes to sustainable mobility by collaborating with stakeholders in the area. The aim is to achieve established targets in areas including safety, environment, health, and accessibility. This is done by working actively to reduce car use and increasing pedestrian and cycle traffic.
People’s attitudes and travel habits are influenced by facilitating a safer traffic environment and creating good infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists. Property owners can influence this through measures that create conditions for sustainable travel. The Mobility Index tool has been developed to facilitate property owners’ efforts. Using the tool, the Stockholm Royal Seaport urban development project and developers are able to design and introduce measures on each property and evaluate to what extent these measures have a positive effect on sustainable mobility.
Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project is to develop a tool that encourages and inspires developers to incorporate measures in buildings that stimulate sustainable mobility.
Results and experiences
The tool is based on a number of measures that have been identified and divided into five modules, the walking city, the cycling city, stationary vehicles, goods management, and mobility services.
Within the framework of each module, a number of measures have been identified for which participants can earn points. All points that a property earns for implemented measures are totalled and divided by the maximum possible score, which gives a total mobility index.
Evaluation carried out at the very early stages of the scheme suggests that developers have incorporated the issue of sustainable transport planning to a greater extent right from the outset.
