European Commission: Public consultation
Sustainable transport - new urban mobility framework
1. July 2021 to 23. September 2021
|Event location|| |
To help the EU build on its 2013 urban mobility package and meet its 2050 climate target, this initiative proposes measures to encourage EU countries to develop urban transport systems that are safe, accessible, inclusive, affordable, smart, resilient and emission-free.
The initiative also addresses transport pollution and congestion, and draws lessons from COVID-19’s effect on public transport to help with the transition to a climate-neutral economy and emission-free transport at local level.
The main stakeholders identified include cities and their networks, stakeholders active in urban mobility and road safety fields, national and local administrations, as well as citizens living in cities.
Why we are consulting
The aim of the envisaged consultations is to seek information and feedback from the most relevant stakeholders and from the wider public in relation to the main directions of the planned EU Urban Mobility framework. More specifically, the consultation should provide feedback as to how the EU urban areas can:
- contribute to reducing transport greenhouse emissions and to other objectives of the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy including its milestone to have 100 European cities carbon neutral by 2030;
- improve the quality of life of the EU urban population by addressing urban mobility challenges such as air pollution, congestion, noise, accessibility, road safety while promoting physical activity;
- increase the support to, and use of, the most sustainable transport modes (in particular public transport and active mobility) as well as zero-emission urban logistics.
