Kicking-off #EMTA meeting sessions.
Great introduction given by @jaume_mateu, let’s enjoy!
#publictransport #sustainablemobility
New Regional Master Plan in the #BalearicIslands is willing to overturn #transportation planning from traffic to #mobility management.
"If you plan cities for cars and traffic, you get cars and traffic. If you plan for people and places, you get people and places". Fred Kent.
The last 16 years of planning and transportation management has been nearly useless to reduce private motorized vehicle trips mode share. It's time to change if we want to keep living on this precious islands.
Push and pull policies need to be implemented in the short term.
Greater investment in #publictransport than #roadnetwork is one of the objective to make transit the best alternative for local and interurban trips.
Collaboration between regional and local governments are the key point to promote walking and biking by executing #SUMP results.
@jaume_mateu explains the path for next years to start getting few cars and more #publictransport in the #BalearicIslands.
Now, it’s time for getting things done.
41 million trips per year on the urban bus network in #Palma @EMT_Palma.
10 million trips per year on the interurban bus network by @TIB_Mallorca.
5 million trips per year on the rail network in #Mallorca by @sferroviarism.
It's time to keep growing together, isn't it?
@TIB_Mallorca explains the objectives that ground the new bus network to be deployed in #Mallorca in the very near future. 😍
This is coming!!! #Mallorca
#Buses #Buses #Buses
#Mallorca is about to see an increase in 51% interurban bus mileage.
🚌🚌Higher capacity buses.
🕑More stable schedules.
✅New low-emissions bus fleet: electric and CNG.
♿️Los floor buses and improved bus stops are being rolled out.
🖥Better information.
Great job! @TIB_Mallorca
Great round of questions about what "sticks" to private cars are planned at the local level and about financing issues regarding the huge increase in #publictransport offer at the regional level.
Also, a lot of expectation about this hub-based bus network re-design regarding planning and operations strategies. More transfers mean more connectivity. 👍
Now it's time for the Payment and Pricing in #PublicTransport. 🔽
#EMTA2019 @TIB_Mallorca
Starting point in #Mallorca is complicated. It's been in 2018 when the first steps in fare integration between @EMT_Palma and @TIB_Mallorca have been done.
Brighter future will come with new fare-collection system starting, hopefully, this year.
The main objective is to reduce dramatically #boardingtime on the # bus network by:
-Reducing on-board cash tickets.
-Facilitate transfers.
-Create a framework for #MaaS products.
-Based on post (and pre-) payments.
-Identity-based: #PublicTransport card, mobile phone...
@infoGMV takes the floor to talk about the hardware to be rolled out on the new @TIB_Mallorca and @EMT_Palma fleet.
Software will be in-house developed at @TIB_Mallorca.
Now Ingrid de Bruijn from @Vervoerregio talks about the dutch way, based on a unique OV-Chipkaart for the whole country.
More user-friendly system operated at lower costs. #winwin
By 2024, the #Netherlands plan ther Mifare Classic turn-off moving towards new payment methods narrowing the gap to #MaaS.
Very inspirational and challenging horizon! 🤩
Now its time for Matthew Hudson representing my main inspirational way of doing things in #PublicTransport: @TfL
A fare system based on CONVENIENCE. 🙌
@TfL #EMTA2019 #Palma
What about #PublicTransport flat fare? Let's discover the experience from @IDFmobilites with Laurent Probst.
@IDFmobilites concludes that "reducing dramatically the price of #publictransport does not bring people from cars to public transport" [only 2%].
Demand is not [mainly] driven by fare, but a convenient and reliable transit system.
@atucsemueve @transportpublic @TransitCenter
Tallin's (Estonia) free #publictransport is 100% political decision, not based on any expert's recommendation, says Tiit Laiksoo from the City of Tallin.
A call to politicians to stop taking decisions against common sense and disregarding cost and experts indications.
A real growth in #publictransport ridership is NOT about making it free. It is about transit signal priority, bus lanes, increased frequency, great accessibility, awesome riding and waiting experience... and prevent cars from poisoning cities and regions.
This is what happened in #Tallin after free-fare #publictransport intended to promote #sustainablemobility.
Judge yourself.
@atucsemueve @transportpublic @TransitCenter @UITPnews
Rafael Cuesta, from @OfficialTfGM, explains the new zonal fare system for Greater Manchester region at #EMTA2019 in #Palma.
Thomas Geier presents #EMTA definition of #MaaS in #Palma.
@HSL_HRT is presenting their #MaaS experiences at #EMTA2019
Getting to the end of a great and packed day at #EMTA2019, @tib_mallorca is doing a demo of the new in-house developed fare system, to be deployed within the next moths not without loads of effort.
What a great job done there! 👍
#publictransport for all.
Real life tests to be undertaken durning next summer in selected lines, and ready to be fully deployed with the new bus network in #Mallorca later this year.
Can’t wait for our new @TIB_Mallorca!
Let’s go for the 2nd day!
Let’s talk about decarbonization of #publictransport!
Financing is one of the main issues when talking about urban transit electrification.
Let’s see what can be done!
@IDFmobilites explains their plan to convert about 10.000 buses and 26 depots in #Paris by 2025! @RATPgroup
According to @IDFmobilites and their real data, #electricbuses cost curve meets the diesel buses cost curve at year 35 while industry fixes it in 5 years.
@ferranrosa presents the Climate Change and Energy Transition act for the #BalearicIslands to our #publictransport European colleagues of #EMTA at #EMTA2019.
Main goals are to be energetically-independent as far as possible, to democratize energy system, to build much more resilient islands, to go for renewable sources of energy, manage smartly our energy demand and to ensure a just transition.
#ClimateChangeLaw #BalearicIslands
@ferranrosa #electricvehicles by themselves do not mean #sustainablemobility. That’s why changes in mobility patterns need to be urgently encouraged to achieve sustainability goals.
