In France, peri-urban areas are the territories with the strongest demographic growth (1% per year observed over the last three decades). However, a significant proportion of the peri-urban population lives too far from public transport services (in the Paris region, 50% of the inhabitants live more than one kilometre from a public transport stop). Too often, peri-urban areas are developed in such a way that car use is essential.
Since its creation, Padam Mobility aimed to make mobility in sparsely populated areas more efficient and therefore more accessible. Taking charge of the mobility of people living in peri-urban areas by offering sustainable shared mobility solutions is a mission to which the company responds on a daily basis by setting up Demand-Responsive Transport services (DRT and Paratransit). To improve travel for all and facilitate access to services and jobs.
