Rural mobility is a major issue. The gap between dense urban areas and the rest of the country, where more than one in three French people lives, is widening. Faced with the scarcity and remoteness of services and employment areas, rural areas are also poorly or hardly served by public transport. 62% of rural French people cite the lack of an adequate solution as the main reason for not using public transport for their travels.
Since its creation, Padam Mobility has aimed to make smart mobility accessible to sparsely populated areas. Taking care of the mobility of people living in peri-urban and rural 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 (DRT and Paratransit) services. To improve travel for all and to facilitate access to services and jobs.
