Viatic Project: An Innovative Urban Furniture for Sustainable Mobility

Ecology and sustainability are key political issues in France today. In the transport sector, these concerns are reflected in the use of the term “sustainable mobility” which describes the drive to strike a new balance between the use of personal vehicles on the one hand, and public transport and soft transport options on the other. Use of personal vehicles can only be reduced by making public transport more attractive and overcoming negative perceptions about journey times and changes from one mode of transport to another, seen as troublesome and a waste of time. One of the priority is to improve the quality of journeys with information and better communications – which help save time – plus access to consumer and public services along the way.
