The Need for Flexibility in Rural Areas
Rural areas often face limited access to regular transport, making daily commuting and tourist exploration a logistical challenge. Badia Bus recognizes this need for more flexible solutions and addresses them head-on. With Simdle Mobility’s software solution, Badia Bus can optimize routes based on real-time demand, ensuring that even in remote areas, residents and visitors have access to timely and convenient transportation. This flexibility is a game-changer for rural communities and enhances connectivity while fostering economic and social development.
Tourists and citizens travelling through the Dolomites have been able to use one of the two Badia Bus’s On-Demand Mobility shuttles during this summer. The service was designed to cater to the needs of both residents and tourists as an integral part of the local sustainability strategy.
Accessible and Affordable RidesWhat also sets this project apart is its inclusive approach. All vehicles were able to accommodate passengers with wheelchairs. And in terms of pricing, each trip had a symbolic cost of 1€ reflecting Badia Bus’ commitment to the community. Then it is not just about reaching destinations; it's about making every part of the journey accessible to everyone. Proof of this is the roughly one thousand trips that took place in the few months of the main summer season.
Driving Regional Sustainability GoalsThis collaboration between Simdle Mobility and Badia Bus aligns with South Tyrol's regional strategy that puts sustainability at the heart of its tourism strategy. Badia Bus stands as a key initiative and learning moment in fulfilling this goal, contributing to reduced carbon footprints and enhancing the region's commitment to eco-friendly transport in rural and touristic areas. As we celebrate the success of this partnership and analyse the learnings in view of its potential continuation, we're mindful of the road ahead. We're steering towards a future where on-demand mobility isn't just a convenience—it's a catalyst for positive transformation. Our on-demand mobility solution is not just a service—it's a technology that fosters sustainability, accessibility, and inclusion.
