By Fiona Twisse / Updated: 17 Jan 2020

EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2019 exceeded all expectations and the 2019 Participation report published in December 2019 found it to be the most successful year, yet.

The annual event has been running since 2002 and participation levels have been steadily increasing over the years. The 2019 campaign saw an incredible 3,135 towns and cities taking part by holding events and implementing initiatives to encourage safe walking and cycling in their areas.  EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK encouraged people to ‘Walk with us’ to promote safer, healthier and cleaner transport.

In 2019, a total of 17 countries broke their previous participation records and 1,374 towns and cities organised car-free days. The number of permanent measures implemented was more than double 2018 levels with 15,613 permanent measures implemented in 2019 compared to 6,765 in 2018.
