Welcome to the Eltis Mobility Update!


A new year brings new opportunities. For the Eltis team, it’s the chance to see how we can improve the website to maximise its benefit to you – our readers. So before you depart on your winter holidays, we’d be very grateful if you could please take just 5 minutes to complete our short survey.

The EU-funded EVIDENCE project has been sifting through mountains of research to collect evidence of the benefits of sustainable transport. This month’s feature is an interview with the project’s co-ordinator, Colin Black, who will shed light on the team’s progress.

Our case studies this month are about how local German, Dutch and British students helped bring fresh, actionable ideas to the rail industry in a creative way, and how Ghent has identified and purchased the most suitable energy-efficient emergency vehicles.


Happy reading!
