GECKO Guidelines; a guide for policy makers shaping the future of urban mobility.
The overall goal of the GECKO project “Governance principles and mEthods enabling deCision maKers to manage and regulate the changing mObility systems” is to support authorities in developing the most appropriate regulatory framework and governance model, through guidance, recommendations, and case studies, for the transition to a new mobility era of cooperative, inclusive, competitive, sustainable, and interconnected mobility across all modes, through evidence-based research.
GECKO partners have conducted extensive research on disruptive transport innovations, analysing the technology that enables them, the business models that make them run, the issues they raise, and their implications for governance and regulation. The results of these efforts can be accessed through a set of tools, including a Knowledge Bank, a compliance map, and several publications.
Building upon these results, project partner POLIS has developed a set of guidelines to support policy makers. This guidance focuses on the policy makers operating at local and regional governments and transport authorities. This includes elected officials, political support staff and public administration workers who hold leadership positions, or participate directly in shaping, implementing, and managing policies at this level.
Finally, these guidelines do not seek to provide universal, prescriptive, and rigid guidance, since contexts, needs, and leadership vary. In the truest sense of guidance, this document seeks, instead, to establish some basic concepts ( a map that all can use, as a shared reference) and foster a strategic approach, that can help look ahead and chart a path for the future of urban mobility.Back to all News
