The pilot is carried out by Region Värmland
, a project partner of the RESPONSE project.
The beneficiary area will also be the Värmland region in Sweden.
The pilot's aim is to use technology to encourage travellers of vulnerable groups to use more regular public transport, especially for medical-related trips. This will also mean cost savings for public transport authorities and hopefully reduced emissions by also introducing more people to opt for patient transports instead of private vehicles when going to their health care appointments.
The pilot aims to started in March, 2020 and due to COVID-19 it has currently been put on hold.
