Partnering with PAF

We are a dynamic team with a vision of a better Malta for all. We know that there are others like us who believe in a better, cleaner and safer future – we want to work with you. We believe in working together. If you feel that your organization, company, university or school has an innovative idea on how to make mobility and traffic in Malta better let us know! Whether is small public information campaign or the next game-changer in mobility in Maltawe are happy to meet and discuss how we can cooperate and collaborate, either as a CSR opportunity or as a joint venture. 

We have a variety of projects, ranging from research, to behaviour change campaigns, all aimed at improving the traffic situation in the Maltese Islands. For some we need funding and for others partners.  

But you do not need to be a company or organization! Perhaps you are a citizen with a vision? We invite you to share your ideas, opinions and thoughts on how to improve mobility on www.greentrips.eu

Current Projects

Malta EIT Urban Mobility RIS Hub

Led by PAF, the Malta Hub is a consortium of three partners: PAF, MCAST y and the Valletta Cultural Agency, through the Valletta Design ClusterThe Malta RIS hub acts a contact point for EIT Urban Mobility in Malta,The Malta Hub forms part of EIT Urban Mobility – a wider knowledge and innovation community established by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), to accelerate positive change on mobility. The main objective of this Hub is to facilitate networking and collaboration between all the stakeholders, while sharing international best practice and developing.

Greentrips

The GreenTrips online platform has been launched in December 2020 to support the transformation of urban mobility through the active engagement of citizens. It supports the transition to a new normal which favours convenience, efficiency, affordability, but above all safety and sustainability. GreenTrips encourages citizens to voice their ideas, experiences, ideas, needs and concerns about transport and public space. The project has been developed in collaboration with Greenroads.



Safe Routes to School

The Safe Route to School Project aims to promote walking to school among children aged 4-11 by identifying specific routes around one primary school that can be secured and embellished to encourage walking to school as a form of daily exercise and alternative to the private car. Using tactical urbanism interventions (low-cost, temporary pop-up infrastructure) a selected network of streets around the school (made available online) can be transformed into safe accessible public routes for children and parents to use daily.

 
 

 

Past Projects

GasanMamo Insurance has teamed up with Project Aegle Foundation and Prof. Adrian Muscat, to map existing speed limit posts along the primary roads across the island and gather missing data of local speed limits; in an attempt to raise awareness about speeding on the local roads and road safety.

The aim of this project is to find innovative ideas of how to improve mobility in Malta. Anyone who has a fresh, innovative idea of how to move towards sustainable mobility in Malta and lessening traffic may participate in this newly established competition and enters the chance of winning prizes. This platform is being provided as our very own project manager explains there is a lot of knowledge and ideas out there on how to improve sustainable mobility in Malta, so why not let our citizens give a piece of their mind.

One of the reasons Project Aegle created this project on flexible working schemes is to update our understanding on flexible working hours in Malta as past surveys rank the Maltese islands 9th from the bottom in the EU when it comes to offering flexible working hours and locations to their employees. In a few words flexible working hours mean a variation from the traditional 9 to 5 work day & also of the location.

We created a questionnaire, designed for businesses and companies in Malta, whether big or small. Through this we will be collecting research data, which will be of great importance. This questionnaire is divided into 2 sections; an introduction and a few specific questions. 

The sole aim of this idea is to lessen traffic on our roads as most of the traffic congestion happens during rush hour in the morning and after work. If certain employees come to work only when they have meetings and continue working normally from home or any other place many of our mobility problems would get fixed. Also we believe that through this project both the employer and the employees will benefit for several reasons.

Hopefully, like a domino effect with the success of the pilot project, other businesses/ companies would like to give this new venture a try. If this idea spreads well other positive outcomes may be obtained in the near future.

Project Aegle, and WotoMoto, present interested companies with six e-bikes for the company’s employees to use for journeys of less than 10km. For the duration of the project, research will be conducted on the number, length and duration of the journeys made. Each trip will be logged via a bike computer. Every four months, the data will be analysed by Project Aegle’s research team. At the end of the four month period the bikes and the necessary equipment will be handed over to the next interested company. This service has been created to improve mobility. Employees taking part in this project will have the opportunity to try out alternative modes of transport and will have the satisfaction of lessening traffic from the Maltese roads.

If you are interested to offer this experience to your employees please contact us directly on [email protected] for more information.

During the month of June 2018 a survey about a mobile application for transportation and mobility created by Project Aegle was carried out online and shared through social media. A total of 150 valid respondents answered questions related to the introduction of a mobility smartphone app. The survey asked people for their reactions to a smartphone application that would simplify trip planning and travel in Malta. This app would help them broaden their travel options—from public transport to car sharing—for that trip’s route. Two-thirds of the respondents were positive or very positive towards the idea of using such an app. A significant 40% would use the app to find alternatives to using the car such as information and booking of public transport, route planning and carpooling. This survey concludes that having an app in place that enables you to plan your trip much better would greatly improve Malta’s traffic situation.

Here you can read about the results.

In the past we have carried out limited studies into how ICT systems can help us understand mobility, driver behavior and the effect of policy on the same. More specifically, we looked into Global Positioning System (GPS) data to compute the delays experienced at different times of the day and during different months of the year. We will take this further to develop a heat map. As soon as we have results we will publish the information.
