To help the EU build on its 2013 Urban Mobility Package and meet its 2050 climate target, the new Urban Mobility Initiative will propose measures to encourage EU countries to develop urban transport systems that are safe, accessible, inclusive, affordable, smart, resilient and emission-free.
The initiative will also address transport pollution and congestion, and draw 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 European Commission is inviting the general public and stakeholders to express their opinion on this new initiative. The Open Public Consultation (OPC) will be open for 12 weeks, closing on 23 September 21.
