THE INNOAIR PROJECT AS AN EXAMPLE OF INNOVATION IN URBAN MOBILITY AT THE URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE & MOBILITY FORUM 2021

Building a more accessible urban area and integrating smart mobility solutions are among the main goals of any large city striving for sustainable development. Changes in the field of mobility require coordinated efforts and exchange of experience and on this occasion in Sofia was held Urban Infrastructure & Mobility Forum 2021. Among the partners of the event are some of the partners of INNOAIR project - Sofia Development Association and National Association of Municipalities in the Republic of Bulgaria.

Furthermore, the project coordinator on behalf of the INNOAIR leading partner and director of the Transport Directorate at Sofia Municipality - Ivan Nikolov was among the speakers of the event. He introduced the audience to the INNOAIR project as a good example of introducing innovative solutions to urban challenges in terms of mobility. The audience learned about the main activities of the project, namely the introduction of green transport on demand, testing of low-emission zones and green corridors, as well as improving the public transport scheme in certain districts of the capital. An interesting approach in the implementation of project activities is the active involvement of citizens in the process of designing possible solutions.
Along with the services for shared mobility and micro-mobility, the implementation of the ecological transport on demand, which will be tested in the framework of INNOAIR, was presented by Elitsa Panayotova - coordinator of the Sofia Green project of Sofia Development Association. This innovation is one of the steps for a mass transition to fully integrated transport.
