Weaving together sustainable journeys in Toulouse
‘Tisser’ means ‘to weave’ in French, and Toulouse transport operator Tisséo-SMTC has done just that – weaving together a comprehensive web of sustainable transport options to create a model low-carbon travel network. Aside from expanding and improving the public transport network, it works with businesses to help them incentivise employees to use more sustainable forms of transport.
What’s more, smart travelcards can be used across the whole transport network, including bicycle hire and storage as well as for buses and car parking. These measures combined have resulted in a phenomenal 80% increase in public transport journeys.
