Title: Auto-Free Tourism for Gentle Mobility

The project “Sanfte Mobilität (SAMO, gentle mobility) – Auto-Free Vacation” consolidates 37 Werfenweng (Austria) hotels (SAMO businesses) with the aim of transforming the town toward deceleration. The project offers to exchange holiday guests’ car keys for the SAMO key. A private taxi driver takes the guests from place to place. Electric cars as well as e-scooters, bicycles and horse-drawn carriages are ready to use and create a new sort of holiday quality. The guests who go on vacation without a car do not sacrifice mobility and enjoy an auto-free holiday experience. Meanwhile more than 20 alternative transportation options are in use.
