  • ON-THE-GO / RURAL MOBILITY 2.0

    Public transportation in rural areas needs to cope with structural difficulties of low population densities, high car ownership and an aging rural society. But rural areas are also characterized by vibrant community life, strong voluntary engagement and collaboration. Local voluntary organizations in many European countries, including Germany, have started to operate community transport services to their villages. The number and types of services is growing steadily.

    RAMSES is taking these rural mobility services to the next level. Community-driven transportation and other alternative mobility options like bottom-up car sharing rely mostly on face-to-face contact, personal acquaintance and trust; it is largely paper-based, as restricted budgets do not allow implementing IT infrastructure. Building on this first generation of the sharing economy, RAMSES offers an easy-to-use IT application that allows providers to make the most of the local commitment.

    RAMSES is empowering rural mobility by linking public transportation services, alternative mobility providers and rural communities together on one platform. This platform provides not only an intermodal trip planner and ticketing for users of rural transportation services. Unlike many others, the RAMSES platform specifically aims on empowering small-scale providers of mobility services in rural areas, e.g. voluntary community transport providers. A low cost, integrated solution supports them in organizing, operating and marketing their services. For society this provides access to a wider range of mobility options, better integration, thus less dependence on the car and environmental impact.

    The platform will be deployed, tested and put in existing structures in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, which witnesses a significant growth in alternative, community-driven mobility services.
