InCoMMune aims to acquire an understanding of the transport needs in relation to the complex activity-travel patterns of our contemporary society. The main goal is to identify the main determinants for mobility in a dynamic context, and use this information to integrate collaborative solutions offering comparable flexibility and comfort with respect to privately owned cars. The main argument is that one of the reasons for commuting by car is the need for efficient and flexible solutions for the whole trip chain, and in particular for the work-related activities during the day.
One of the contributions of the project is to study the university relocation from Luxembourg City to the new campus located 25km southwest of the country. This brings the opportunity to collect data on the mobility dynamics that are currently being observed even before the relocation started. Since the relocation is expected to take years and staff members are being moved in stages, corporate transport services are being offered, namely a) a carpooling platform, b) a shuttle service connecting the new campus with the three still active campuses in the city, and c) a car-sharing system that the staff members can use for work-related activities and for emergency issues, where the car remains the dominant and most convenient solution.
