SOLUTIONSplus is back with a brand new e-course!

The SOLUTIONSPlus Global Learning Programme on electric mobility is about to kick-off the fourth e-course, about electrification of paratransit services.

And what is Paratransit, you may ask?  It is a transportation service that supplements larger public transport systems by providing individualized rides without fixed routes or timetables.

This is a 5-unit course, that will be run over a period of 5 weeks. The course will be officially launched on 5 June and run until the beginning of July. Each week, a new unit will be published online.

At the end of the course, the objective is to provide a general understanding of the main outcomes of the electrification transition within the paratransit industry, while taking into consideration the specificities of the sector and its operators. Throughout the 5 units, participants will gain knowledge on the main planning requirements and the different steps to undertake when considering paratransit electrification and their integration in urban mobility systems. The constraints and interests of the various stakeholders will be addressed more specifically, to ensure the development of inclusive projects.

The e-course on paratransit electrification results is led by CODATU. The e-course units are coordinated by UEMI and CODATU, supported by POLIS and Rupprecht Consult.



Register here and join the kick-off webinar on 5 June from 12:00 to 13:00 CET to learn more about what to expect from the e-course and each unit. The e-course is free of charge and will be hosted on the Mobility Academy platform.
