With the accelerated development of new urban mobility offerings (free-floating bicycles, escooters, etc.), access to and use of the curb space has become a major challenge for Brussels-Capital Region. The new forms of mobility have incredible potential to improve air quality in Brussels-Capital Region, and to facilitate access to low-carbon mobility for all citizens.

For the development of these new services to be a real success, Brussels Mobility wishes to be able to work closely and confidently with the various operators. As part of the "Cyclopartage" regulation, which came into force in September 2019, shared mobility operators must now transmit part of the mobility data generated by their services to Brussels Mobility. To equip itself with digital tools to collect and efficiently use this data in a single interface, Brussels Mobility has decided to use the services of Vianova, as part of a six-month pilot project.

Through its technological solution, Vianova will help Brussels-Capital Region to integrate new forms of mobility within its urban space, giving it easy and transparent access to the mobility data it needs. The platform, thus made available, will enable Brussels Mobility to facilitate the integration, comparison, and analysis of this data and to monitor compliance with its regulation requirements (vehicles supply, parking rules, traffic zones, etc.) by mobility operators. This essential digital layer between mobility operators and Brussels-Capital Region will allow transparent and intelligent collaboration.

The initiative is also in line with the Brussels-Capital Region's ambitious objective of carbon neutrality by 2050. Thus, through this project, Brussels Mobility wants to contribute to raising the awareness of the various mobility operators to conduct a coherent and ambitious policy on air quality and road safety in Brussels.
