After more than a year of discussion, the Law on Mobility Orientation (LOM) was definitively adopted by the French Parliament on 19 November. It wishes to improve the daily journeys of the French people, by putting the environmental issue at the centre of the discussions.
For more than two years, Mobivia, Via ID and its startups have contributed to the implementation of this law, first within the Assises de la Mobilité, then in the France Mobilités approach (of which we are members of the strategic committee) and finally in the monitoring of the law’s progress.
We welcome a constructive collaborative approach that has involved public and private stakeholders in a fundamental reflection process aimed to enhance everyday mobility and innovation.
The LOM was voted to solve transport inequalities and promote the practice of soft, sustainable and shared mobility.
With a planned budget of more than 13 billion euros to be invested until 2022, the LOM wishes to give priority to the maintenance of infrastructure and the development of everyday transport. It also aims to better serve sparsely populated areas: the implementation of new sustainable and accessible transport solutions for all and in all areas (carpooling, autonomous shuttles, transport on demand, etc.).
“The Mobility Orientation Law provides a strong response to the social divisions and sense of injustice experienced by many French people who do not have a satisfactory mobility solution on a daily basis, as well as to the environmental emergency”,
Élisabeth Borne, Minister of Ecology and Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, Secretary of State for Transport.
The application of this law will directly impact the activity of some of our startups (accelerated and incubated) such as Klaxit for carpooling at work, Smoove for self-service bike rental, TrackAp for bike tracking in case of theft, Altermove for buying a bike, or You2You for the delivery of the last carbon-free kilometer.
Some important aspects, which are covered by directives, circulars or ordinances, have yet to be produced and we remain vigilant to avoid misrepresenting intentions, particularly with regard to the protection of personal data.
“This law includes major advances to facilitate the deployment of sustainable mobility solutions for everyone on a daily basis: MaaS, data opening, mobility packages, etc. A framework that should enable the startups we support to offer solutions to citizens on a daily basis. As Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, Secretary of State for Transport, testified during his visit to Moove Lab, our startup acceleration program at Station F: ambitious entrepreneurs are addressing the mobility issues of citizens, whether urban or rural, listening to them and unlocking regulatory barriers is key to enabling them to achieve their ambitions.”
Yann Marteil, Managing Director Via ID
