SMILE is focused on first and last mile of mobility in some variegated and paradigmatic urban areas of Adrion Region, embracing coastal, inland and bordering cities of different size (capital, middle, little). Urban areas are place where every day residents, commuters and tourists face consequences of unsustainable mobility models and lack of effective multimodal solutions: air pollution, aggravated in many urban areas involved in SMILE by circulation of obsolete diesel vehicles, congestion and related waste of time, CO2 emission, noise, accidents, too public spaces occupied by cars. SMILE will address these issues through a logical sequence of actions and related outputs: depiction and comparison of mobility scenarios to enable policy makers and key stakeholders to better understand consequences of inaction/action; elaboration of a transnational SUMP-Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan as common cognitive umbrella under which to elaborate (or reinforce, where already initiated) local SUMPs mirroring local specific situations; to test by residents, commuters, tourists, freight and bus tourism operators some IT-Information Technology solutions (APPs/Platforms) aimed at reducing/curbing congestion, promote intermodal solutions and make more efficient traffic flows. The expected change of SMILE is multilevel: firstly, to strengthen knowledge and operational capacity about mobility of local/regional authorities; secondly, to test quick-win solutions based on IT, and hence not requiring large infrastructural investments, to promote intermodal transport. The transnational approach is needed because it allows a comparison, exchange and share of experiences. The novelty and originality of SMILE resides in the elaboration of mobility scenarios and SUMP scheme within a transnational context and in the mix of IT solutions that will be tested. SMILE will strongly contribute to achievement of EUSAIR strategy (Pillars 2 &3: “Connecting the Region”; Sustainable Tourism”).
