The COMMUTE reference framework

toulouse urban transport centre
The COMMUTE project aims at achieving more seamless mobility, while at the same time reducing the environmental impact of transport and enhancing quality of life for Toulouse Metropole inhabitants and the conurbation. Following a co-creation and co-construction process, Toulouse Métropole and its partners have chosen to deploy a new model of collaborative management for urban mobility. This model is participative and innovative. This 3rd and last Zoom-In provides an overview of the COMMUTE reference framework in its current state.

The COMMUTE project aims at achieving more seamless mobility, while at the same time reducing the environmental impact of transport and enhancing quality of life for Toulouse Metropole inhabitants and the conurbation. Following a co-creation and co-construction process, Toulouse Métropole and its partners have chosen to deploy a new model of collaborative management for urban mobility. This model is participative and innovative.

The project is reaching an end (end of January 2021). It has sometimes slightly changed directions, i.e., late adoption of an action on cycling, drop of the autonomous shuttle action - though always remaining true to its main goals. Local elections, and especially the COVID-19 pandemic, have impacted the implementation of the project and still are.

One of the main goals of the project focuses on transferability: on this, COMMUTE partners and the Work Package leader, Airbus, are working with AFNOR, the French standardisation agency, on developing a reference framework on collaborative governance of urban mobility. This should ensure that the project’s learnings can be transferred and replicated once COMMUTE has come to an end. Regular partner meetings enable the analysis of externalities and added value generated by that new governance system, which feed into the development of the reference framework. This work is still ongoing, and will be the last action of COMMUTE to be concluded. It could potentially lead to an EU standard on mobility management systems, as developed further in the zoom-in (pdf).

This 3rd and last Zoom-In provides an overview of the COMMUTE reference framework in its current state. It will highlight the scope, the methodology used to develop it, and explain how it was then elaborated by AFNOR and the partners, and how it is transferable. It will also mention challenges and next steps, including a possible ISO standard on collaborative governance for urban mobility.

This Zoom In follows a Zoom In 2 on the COMMUTE cycling action, and a first Zoom In on the Intercompany Workplace Travel Plan.
