Presentation of our work at the SCCER Mobility and CREST conferences

Category : Uncategorized

Our poster at this year’s SCCER Mobility conference showed insights gained from the SBB Green Class project. It could be seen that a Mobility as a Service offer such as SBB Green Class (including public transport passes, an electric car, etc.) may substantially lower the carbon footprint of people using it. At the SCCER CREST conference we got the chance to present the (now almost completed) GoEco! project and the insights gained from it. Especially people living in rural areas showed significant mobility behavior changes for all routes they systematically travel.
