- Neighbourhood mobility service in car-free housing

Car traffic in the city needs to be reduced - both to create a more attractive city and to reduce the climate impact of traffic.

In this initiative, LKF intends to create "car-free living" in the Xplorion property at Södra Brunnshög in Lund by providing the mobility service EC2B to the residents instead of private car parking. EC2B is a new concept to include transportation as a service as an integrated part of the housing. EC2B means a mix of mobility services such as public transport, car pool and bike pool, gathered in an integrated offer made available through an app.

By reducing the demand for private car ownership, EC2B greatly reduces the need for parking, thus reducing construction costs and the use of land and building materials. Access to sustainable transport choices also leads to reduced emissions from residents' travel. Linking housing and mobility creates synergies that make more efficient use of resources in the system than today.
