Mobiscore

16065 - 19044
From 2017 to 2019
Mobiscore is a tool that assigns an ‘accessibility score’ to a particular house or land lot.  The score informs potential buyers or renters on how well the various facilities – s.a. a railway station, a bus stop, a school, etc. – can be reached in a sustainable manner; i.e. by foot or by bike.
With the development of this tool, the Environment, Nature and Energy Department (LNE) wants to raise awareness amongst citizens on the mobility impact that is related to the choice of residence.  As a matter of fact, the ecological footprint of the average Flemish household is bigger than that of its counterparts in the surrounding countries.  This is largely due to the substantial number of vehicle kilometres per resident; which is partly related to our choice of residence and our resulting travel behaviour; e.g. our displacements to go to work, go shopping, spend leisure time, etc.
The decision to buy or rent is an influential moment that can be seized to drive behavioural change.  On the Mobiscore website (www.mobiscore.be), locations can be easily compared to each other.  

Follow-up studie
Six months after Mobiscore had been launched, TML conducted a thorough analysis of the results in cooperation with the Environment, Nature and Energy Department.  The aim of this follow-up study is to better understand the current Mobiscore, but also to get a deeper understanding of the sensitivity of the various parameters effecting the scores.  Based on the results of this study, we will make proposals to improve the Mobiscore in such way that the tool is better aligned to its policy purposes.
