Sustainable, frequent and eco-friendly public transport solutions for rural areas of Europe.
Partners’ workshop in Croatia is coming up. The event will take place in Zagreb on 1st and Ozalj on 2nd of March. Ozalj will also be the end station for the tourist trains which are part of the pilot activities in RUMOBIL. All interested stakeholders are welcome to join us.
Zagreb - Tea and Martin made the best invitation for tourist trains, which will drive between Zagreb and Ozalj, within the pilot-project lead by HŽ passenger transport. Their solution was the best among many entries for the Croatian transnational competition which promoted the start of RUMOBIL activities in Croatia.
On 30 November 2016, lead partner invited stakeholders to a workshop in Magdeburg,
Rumobil was presented in Zagreb on 24th of November 2016 in front of the Pro-rail alliance members and their guests which were mostly transport professionals.

RUMOBIL will support transnational cooperation between public authorities and their transport entities. These are confronted with a similar challenge to respond to pressures on regional public transport systems caused by demographic change in peripheral areas.
Working together in RUMOBIL will provide them with a platform to exchange knowledge, to generate learning through launching pilot applications of state-of-the art tools and solutions, and to revise their transport policies to better suit changing mobility needs.
Main outputs of RUMOBIL will therefore be pilot actions, the elaboration of a RUMOBIL strategy and policy-decisions to implement this strategy in the eight partner regions through an improvement of their transport plans. Pilot actions allow testing a number of innovative applications during a period of 12 to 18 months how sparsely populated peripheral areas can be better linked to a primary, secondary or tertiary transport node (access to European and national passenger transport networks).
The transnational RUMOBIL strategy indicates to central Europe regions innovative and transferable public transport approaches - based on jointly analysed good practices, the combined knowledge of the partners and involved stakeholders, learning from the pilots, and fresh ideas put forward through a transnational social media-based competition. The strategies’ implementation across the partner regions is prepared through work papers focussing on different aspects of transport policies and forecasts how demand for public transport will develop in coming years. Finally, decisions to revise the transport plans in light of the RUMOBIL strategy are introduced to policy-makers. Communication activities will lead to political support for a change of transport policies and the strategy’s adoption beyond the partner areas. All outcomes will be jointly assessed in site-visits, transnational workshops and a coordinated evaluation under the hospices of research institutions participating in RUMOBIL.
