Tradable Mobility Rights

Tradable mobility rights (TMR) provide a sustainable and innovative solution to many traffic-related problems. By allocating a certain quantity of TMR to each and every citizen, a number of social, economic and ecological goals are reconciled. All citizens thus have a guaranteed right to mobility. Those who need more, will buy TMR of those who are less mobile. As a result, a market price for mobility will come about. The state determines the total quantity of TMR that it distributes in accordance to its goals. This research project consists of three parts. Hasselt University will analyse the economic and technological feasibility of a TMR system. In the second part, using system dynamics, the Free University of Brussels will model and compute the effects on e.g. mobility, environment, income distribution. Langzaam Verkeer (part 3) looks at the social and political legitimacy of TMR.
