There is a need for green mobility that ensures a geographically cohesive labor market, supports rural life and reduces CO2 emissions from transport – that is the task for the transport of the future in Greater Copenhagen.
Therefore, 17 partners, consisting of eight municipalities, the Capital Region of Denmark, Innovation Scania, Gate 21, Mobile Heigts, Concito, 4-Leaf Consulting, Roskilde University and DTU Diploma, have joined forces in an interregional project to change transport in Greater Copenhagen. The Cross-Mobility project will promote green mobility for citizens with new mobility solutions, such as car sharing, carpooling and new high-speed bicycles, to support accessibility in and across the geography of Greater Copenhagen. The project will work to strengthen the interaction across modes of transport, municipal and national borders and across country and city.
In Greater Copenhagen, car traffic and CO2 emissions from transport are increasing. Outside the major cities, more and more people are becoming addicted to driving. The project will pave the way for citizens throughout the geography to choose green transport in everyday life.
Many new solutions such as car sharing, carpooling, sharing electric bikes, speed pedelecs and better combination travel are emerging, but it requires an effort to spread and support the new solutions outside the larger cities where there is no commercial market. The project will initially try to introduce more of these solutions in new geographies by involving the citizens and together creating new solutions. This makes Mobility Across unique in relation to previous Interreg projects. Based on the implementation, the partners in the project will conceptualize the overall solutions so that they can be spread and scaled to other cities.
We work with the following themes:
To ensure scaling of the new mobility solutions implemented in the project, there will be a special focus on building knowledge and sharing experiences across actors in the field of transport in a Mobility Forum – Greater Copenhagen (more information to the right) and a Regional Mobility Center, which showcases the latest mobility solutions.
Through the themes and the circle of partners, the project is expected to result in six scalable concepts within new green mobility solutions and services:
Danish municipalities: Fredensborg, Frederiksberg, Slagelse, Roskilde and Lejre
Swedish municipalities: Sjöbo, Tomelilla and Lund
Other actors: Region Hovedstaden, Innovation Skåne, Gate 21, Mobile Heights, Concito,
4 Leaf Consulting, Movia, Roskilde University and DTU Diploma
The project runs between April 2020 – September 2022.
The project is financed by:
Mobility Forum – Greater Copenhagen works to make it easy for everyone in Greater Copenhagen to choose green modes of transport and switch between them. To ensure that citizens’ everyday transport is easy and accessible, it is important that the actors behind it work closely together. Therefore, the collaboration forum brings together the actors across projects, modes of transport, city and country and across the Sound.

The Forum is the place where public authorities, private companies and knowledge institutions share practical knowledge and experiences from mobility projects. We do this to create new collaborations and scale good mobility solutions. Together in Mobility Forum, we create sustainable, cohesive mobility for the citizens of Greater Copenhagen!
