MAMBA stands for Maximised Mobility and Accessibility of Services in Regions Affected by Demographic Change. With shrinking populations in many rural areas around the Baltic Sea region, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up public transport and services that depend on mobility, such as home care or home deliveries. The project aims to improve the integration of existing mobility structures with innovative transport solutions like citizen buses, flying nurses and fleet sharing to overcome these difficulties. MAMBA also evaluates existing, sustainable ways of managing and financing rural mobility that could be transferred to other rural regions. These solutions are presented to public authorities, transport providers and civil society through a public database and a rural mobility compendium.
