Flanders grants mobility subsidies

go back print this page     send page by mail

The Flemish  mobility and public works minister, Hilde Crevits, has accepted the sustainable mobility projects of nine employers in the Flemish region. A total of 1.2 million Euros are being set aside to assist these projects. The companies have committed to working on making the home-work journeys of their personnel more sustainable, by public transport or bike, for example. Each day, the inhabitants of Flanders make 21 million trips, of which 40%, or around 8.4 million, are of less than 3 km, 52% less than 5 km and 71% less than 10 km. The car remains the most frequently used mode of transport for the home-work trip, and so companies and other organisations are being encouraged to persuade their personnel to use other more sustainable modes of transport for getting to work. The funds being made available to support these projects are to be granted to the companies concerned to a maximum level of half of the project cost. The subsidies will be granted for a maximum period of four years for each project. Amongst individual actions which may be available for a grant are the setting up of a mobility coordinator or working group, providing bicycle services and carpooling. Probably the highest profile company to be taking part in these projects is the Delhaize supermarket group, which has been granted over 600,000 Euros.
