inception meeting - G-PaTRA partners

G-PaTRA

About the G-PaTRA project…

G-PaTRA – short for Green Passenger Transport in Rural Areas – is a consortium of 13 partners from across Europe who have been awarded funding by the European Union Interreg North Sea Region programme 2014 – 2020 to take forward a project on green transport in rural areas.

Our goals

The project, which will run until 2021, is led by RGU working in collaboration with partners from UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Belgium (That’s us!). It will promote green transport and mobility by enhancing the capacity of authorities to reduce CO2 from personal transport in remote, rural and island areas. It will embed more zero emission vehicles in rural transport systems and improve available passenger transport resources.

“Rural public transport is high carbon, subsidy intensive and struggles to provide a viable alternative to the car. Together with urban transport carbon reduction strategies rarely being transferrable to rural areas, innovations in green rural transport are sorely needed to help governments meet ambitious carbon reduction targets”

– David Gray, Professor of Transport Policy at RGU’s School of Creative and Cultural Business
