Created in 2014, the Dromolib mobility agency is a Social and Solidarity Economy (ESS) structure based in Crest, in the Drôme Department. It promotes and develops ecomobility - sustainable and lasting mobility - in rural areas and contributes towards supporting change. With its four employees, it offers support through awareness-promotion workshops, advice (mobility diagnosis), training or even introducing ecomobility solutions (bike rental and carpooling).
Its Dromobus project is part of this dynamic. The association starts from the premise that one out of every two trips is 3 to 5 kilometres long, a distance easily covered by bicycle. You still need a bicycle and have to feel comfortable using it. With its bus converted into a bicycle repair shop and riding school, Dromolib should appeal to a rural public, which is often some distance away from a suitable transport option. Its clear objectives are to convince the public to travel by bicycle and, in many cases, to enable a return to work once the difficulty of getting around has been eliminated. At any rate, this is the challenge that lies behind this project supported by the Veolia Foundation.
