PEMO - Commuter Mobility

More than 50,000 commuters move daily across state borders in our region. Added to this is the national commuter traffic in the Alpine Rhine Valley. The consequences are high CO2 emissions, particulate matter and noise pollution. In the three-year Interreg project “PEMO”, cross-border strategies and measures to promote sustainable commuter mobility were developed and tested in practice.


Energieinstitut Vorarlberg


The goal of PEMO was the development and prototypical application of strategies, concepts and concrete “tools” to reduce the volume of passenger cars in commuter traffic. The focus was on shifting car trips to bicycles, public transport and carpooling. Measures were taken at the level of companies and public employers as well as at the level of local communities.
