Urban Mobility

In the context of urban mobility, we explore a number of sub-themes that contribute to the creation of sustainable and efficient transport systems in cities. Promoting active modes of transport, such as walking and cycling, not only reduces emissions, but also improves public health and enhances urban liveability. Demand management strategies, such as congestion charging and parking management, help to reduce congestion and encourage the use of sustainable transport options. Electric buses offer a zero-emission alternative for urban public transport, significantly reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. National Urban Mobility Programmes (NUMP) provide cities with funding and resources to implement Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP), which include a range of measures such as public transport improvements, shared mobility services and integrated transport planning.
