SaMBA aims to promote mobility behaviour change in the Alpine Space (AS) area by reducing the perceived gap between sustainable transport modes and private cars through reward/pricing policies that are equitable and directly related to the external costs of transport. SaMBA brings together 13 partners, 41 observers and 9 pilot cases from 5 countries in order to develop, through a participative and cooperative approach:

  1. policy impact estimation method and tool;
  2. policy recommendations which consider territorial peculiarities and different needs of people;
  3. handbook for policy implementation.

The main AS decision makers and stakeholders will be involved throughout the project in order to ensure SaMBA’s transnational impact regarding

  1. the improvement of awareness in Public Administrations (PAs) about the potential of behaviour change policies;
  2. the promotion, elaboration and implementation of harmonised policies throughout the AS area and their transferability to other contexts;
  3. the modal shift towards sustainable transport options in the pilot cases and in AS areas beyond the project.

The SaMBA project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Alpine Space programme
