The Demoiselle project explores solutions for mobility in zones that aren’t served by traditional collective transport: "last mile" service in diffuse urban areas.
This collective project specifically aims to develop a public transport solution between the Aix-en-Provence TGV station and the Aix La Duranne business park (where thecamp is located), taking the form of an autonomous, clean-energy shuttle, with three main goals:
- Reimagine the passenger experience to improve the attractiveness of public transportation.
- Reduce the environmental impact of trips, by using clean energy, limiting use of personal cars and using existing infrastructure.
- Bring partners together to co-construct a solution: the Demoiselle project brings together the Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolitan Area, industrial companies, research institutes, entrepreneurs and students.
At the end of the 3-year experiment, the goal is to integrate this solution into the metropolitan network, and to replicate it in other local areas, and in other regions or countries.
The project is cofinanced by the French government as part of the national fund for regional planning (Fonds national pour l'aménagement du territoire).
