The eCitySevilla project launches a new challenge aimed at companies or groups of companies, for the contribution of ideas aimed at the implementation of a sustainable mobility service that transfers users from the peripheral car park located in the Banqueta area of the Isla de la Cartuja, to the inside of the fenced enclosure, and vice versa.

The proposed solutions must be based on innovation and may involve either a single means of sustainable transport or a combination of several, provided that the service guarantees that the user does not take more than 15 minutes to reach their destination (be it work, study or other purposes) from the time they park their vehicle, and no more than 15 minutes to return to the car park. The cost of the service should be affordable, ideally not exceeding €1 per day.

The car park will have a capacity for approximately 2,500 cars and will have charging points for all types of electric vehicles. Therefore, the shuttle service must be in accordance with the forecasts for the filling and emptying process of these spaces. It is expected that most of the vehicles will enter in the morning between 7am and 9.30am, with a peak between 7.45am and 8.45am, while the exit is expected to take place progressively between 2pm and 3.30pm (around 2,000 places) and between 3.30pm and 8pm, the remaining 500.

This challenge, which is part of the actions of the Sustainable Mobility working group, led by Seville City Council, responds to the global objectives established by the eCitySevilla alliance and the lines of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (PMUS), recently approved by the Consistory, which envisages the declaration of the PCT Cartuja as a low-emission zone as early as 2023. This will mean that only vehicles with the DGT environmental sticker will be able to access the site.

Companies interested in participating in this challenge may do so by sending their proposal in digital format to the e-mail address before 25 February 2022. All the information and rules of this new challenge are available at this link.
