Egis awarded the Geneva mobility model

The Franco-Swiss authorities have awarded us a new three-year contract to develop and oversee the mobility model covering the Greater Geneva area.

This tool aims to appraise public policies in the areas of urban development and mobility, and also road and public transport projects.

To address current and future mobility challenges (200,000 additional inhabitants expected in Greater Geneva by 2030), the Swiss and French authorities around Lake Geneva basin have joined forces around a common tool: the Cross-Border Multimodal Mobility Model (MMT in French).

The model is coordinated by the Local Cross-Border Cooperation Group (GLCT) whose membership comprises the State of Geneva and the Canton of Vaud from Switzerland, and the Ministry for the Ecological Transition, the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Regional Council and the Haute-Savoie Department Council from France.

Since 2009, Egis has been involved in the development of the MMT and has been operating it for more than four years to help it evolve and perform research studies (Lake Crossing, Greater Geneva metropolitan project, future motorway between Machilly and Thonon, etc.)

This new contract awarded to the Egis/PPV alliance provides for the readjustment of the model in line with the findings of the latest surveys conducted in the Geneva basin and the provision of support to local authorities in drawing up short and medium-term transportation policy.
