To reduce the carbon footprint from our daily travel and commute, we will award fossil-free, user-friendly personal transport services that meet the needs of today’s commuter, and that reduce the need for privately-owned vehicles. We invite applications from safe, reliable suppliers with a healthy business model and the ability to coordinate and provide sustainable transport alternatives within a region. More specifically, proposed solutions should: be built on an open platform; enable secure integration with other systems; and have opportunity for scale.

Sweden is committed to push boundaries to build a more sustainable future and reach a fossil independent transportation sector by 2030. Our daily commute accounts for a substantial part of our CO2-emissions and we need new ways to improve transportation options and reduce the need for a privately-owned vehicle. With this Challenge, Sweden invites the world’s most progressive and innovative solution providers to submit proposals that address personal transportation needs and other mobility challenges in Sweden.
