Launch of EU Urban Mobility Package Consultation

By Benjamin Baxter / Updated: 14 Oct 2019

In 2013, the European Commission put forward the Urban Mobility Package which supports the mission of enhancing urban mobility while reducing congestion, accidents and pollution. To achieve these goals, proposals for relevant action at local, Member State and EU level were outlined.

Since its inception, several developments have had both direct and indirect impacts on urban mobility. This has necessitated an evaluation of the original framework of the Urban Mobility Package to determine the suitability for post-2020 challenges. Therefore, the European Commission has released a public online consultation to gain feedback from relevant stakeholders.

The main stakeholders identified include cities and their networks, stakeholders active in urban mobility and road safety fields, national and local administrations, citizens living in cities as well as the Committee of the Regions.

The European Commission invites relevant stakeholders to contribute to the consultation to provide insight into whether the EU urban mobility policy has been delivered as intended and to identify areas that the policy does not address. The consultation will close on 4 December 2019.
