Stockholm Takes Control of Micro-Mobility Plans

As part of Stockholm’s Vision 2030, the city is working with Vianova – a data platform that helps cities better integrate and manage shared, connected, electric and autonomous transport solutions, and Voi – a Scandinavian micro mobility company offering electric scooters in partnership with cities – to improve its shared mobility services.

“Thanks to our partnership with Vianova, the City of Stockholm can implement the extensive management of our mobility development initiative and accelerate the implementation of new mobility services to our citizens,” said Johan Sundman, traffic officer at the City of Stockholm. “The collaboration with Vianova and Voi, provides us with the micro-mobility plans and digital tools for our streets to thrive. Shared e-scooters are a positive element for our residents, making everyday life easier, so bringing in a solution to create a safer and richer environment for urban mobility is welcomed.”

The Vision 2030 strategy and goals work towards supporting the city’s urban growth. As curbside management has become a major challenge for the city, this new partnership should aid in the effort to convert streets into public space, rather than just transport routes.

“With the City of Stockholm’s support, we’re able to provide a centralised solution to aid the management and implementation of micro-mobility systems throughout the city,” said Thibaud Febvre, COO, Vianova. “Stockholm already has an established transport system throughout the city, but with the addition of micro-mobility services, this will allow the City to make the most of every street. Collaboration with Voi allows us to accelerate the development of urban mobility and provide access to different forms of micro-mobility, such as e-scooters for all, while simultaneously making the streets safer, and greener.”
