Vidzeme Planning Region (VPR) lies in the North East of Latvia. The territory of the VPR comprises of 25 rural municipalities (novads) and one city - Valmiera. The main goal of VPR is to ensure regional planning and coordination, as well as cooperation between municipalities and different governmental institutions. Due to the fact that Vidzeme is the largest region in Latvia by its territory but the smallest according to population, public transportation issues are very important. VPR is looking for ways to enhance mobility of the inhabitants, by providing nature friendly and specifically adjusted transport services in less populated territories of the Vidzeme region.
