RECIPROCITY organised a local mobility workshop in the Czech Republic
On Thursday, June 17th, 2021, the RECIPROCITY partner Regional Development Agency of the Pilsen Region (RRDP) organised a local mobility workshop as part of the project. A number of European cities exchanged their experiences in terms of transport and smart mobility.
The meeting was attended, among others, by the Deputy Mayors of the City of Pilsen, Mr. Michal Vozobule and the City of Pardubice, Mr. Petr Kvaš. The representatives of the City of Jihlava were also actively involved. The workshop offered an inspiring discussion among local mobility experts about the importance of public transport and e-mobility. In particular, the need to better support these mobility segments was highlighted.
Another topic gaining importance in the area which was discussed within the workshop relates to the issue of parking organisation. The City of Pardubice proposed to amend a part of the Road Act to empower cities and municipalities to have better control over parking regulation and the use of parking zones for residents.
Furthermore, the presenters introduced a transport planning software currently being developed by a dedicated team of The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of West Bohemia which, once finished, will help cities to plan travel routes, to run public transport but also to calculate the effectiveness of the deployment of certain types of vehicles or rolling-stock.
