Anders Mobiel | Mobility transition in the periphery
This research is part of ‘Atelier Oost-Vlaams kerngebied (OVK)’. The East Flanders Core Area, a network of cities and towns around Ghent, which expects a population increase of 15 to 25 percent by 2050. How can we seize this demographic growth as an opportunity to shape the necessary transitions in terms of open space, accessibility and economy? In this trajectory, the Atelier OVK focuses on pilot projects at specific locations that, on the basis of design research, can demonstrate how these transitions can be realized. Our research positions itself in relation to the recent Basic Accessibility Decree. The Transport Region is doing a lot to optimize public transport services and routes, but the elephant in the room – short trips and Customized Transport – remains a pressing question. This study formulates possible actions and collaborations for (local) governments.
