Explorion – Mobility as a service for car free housing

Click to enlarge

The car traffic in the city needs to decrease – both to create a more attractive city, and to reduce the climate impact of traffic. In this project, LKF intends to create a “car-free accommodation” in the property Xplorion at Södra Brunnshög in Lund by providing the mobility service EC2B for residents instead of private car parking. EC2B is a new concept for including transport as a service as an integrated part of the accommodation. EC2B is a mix of mobility services such as public transport, car pool and bicycle pool, gathered in an integrated offer available via an app. Because EC2B reduces the demand for private car holdings, the need for parking is greatly reduced, which means that construction costs are reduced and less land and building materials are used. Access to sustainable means of transport also leads to reduced emissions from residents’ travel. By connecting housing and mobility, synergies are created enabling improved resource efficiency.
