Welcome to the MARA project

MARA – Mobility and Accessibility in Rural Areas – is a European project funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme. It is being put into practice between January 2019 and June 2021. 

It aims to improve the accessibility and mobility in touristic remote areas of the Baltic Sea Region by increasing the capacity of transport actors. MARA aims to crosscheck the actual mobility demand of residents and tourists with current mobility offers.

MARA is developing several mobility mapping tools and alternative mobility pilot cases in its partner regions. Have a look here to know more about the cases.
