The Brussels Government has approved the conclusions of the study of the management and development of coach traffic and parking in Brussels. The study covers coaches for tourism and special events, school and company buses and international coaches, numbers of which have increased in Brussels. Its recommendations include improving infrastructure at Brussels-Nord and Brussels-Midi railway stations, a new international bus station, the introduction of regional routes for coaches and the setting of parking priorities.

The Smart Mobility Challenge is a call for projects involving funding living labs in the mobility field. This will mean taking advantage of the increasingly amounts of knowledge and data available in the Brussels-Capital Region (BCR) in order to come up with solutions to the major challenge for society that mobility represents. The objective is to encourage the formation of partnerships that will define a living-lab concept to receive funding that can be spread over three years, totalling at least 4 million euros. This call for projects will actually be launched on 26 September on the occasion of a “brokerage event”, in other words a platform for initiating partnerships. Details of the call for projects will be communicated at the event: the preferred themes, the rules governing it and the selection criteria and process. You can also take part in open space workshops focusing on the various themes related to smart mobility. Tuesday 26 September 2017 The Hotel – Bd. de Waterloo, 38 – B-1000 Bruxelles Register for the event More information on www.innoviris.brussels

What kind of mobility do we want for the Brussels-Capital Region by 2030? How can we move from a vision of mobility to one of multiple and shared mobilities? More than a hundred actors addressed these questions at the Good Move Forum on 20 April, working on four strategic areas: Good Neighbourhood (the principle of large residential districts with traffic calming), Good Network (specialised/hierarchical mobility networks), Good Service (the integration of mobility services) and Good Choice (mobility demand management). What is the relevance of these ambitions? What points do the participants think should be taken into account? Find out in the report (FR / NL) and the video!
Such is the invitation issued by the Board of Mayors and Aldermen of Jette in the ‘Living Jette’ call for projects to bring the place of different users in the local community back into balance, including paths, green spaces, playgrounds and spaces for socialising.

Projects must be submitted by midnight on 21 May 2017. More info. All Brussels municipalities are invited to participate and submit projects under the Living Brussels programme.
We all have expertise to share! That’s why Good Move is also asking for citizens’ ideas at www.goodmovebycitizens.brussels. The period from 20 April to 30 June is the time for sharing innovative ideas for sustainable mobility that will feed into the Regional Mobility Plan. In September, everyone will be able to vote for their five favourite ideas.
More than 100 mobility actors of all kinds gathered at Les Halles Saint-Géry to discuss the strategic directions to be integrated into the future Good Move Plan. The method involved taking four cross-cutting focuses as the starting point rather than working on separate modes of transport. Do you find this approach interesting? You can consult the preparatory document (FR) and will soon be able to read the report on the Forum.
