Walking and cycling

Subscribe to RSS - Walking and cycling

Walking and cycling are the cleanest and most efficient forms of transport, particularly suited for short to moderate distances. Both provide numerous benefits. They improve health, do not produce air or noise pollution and help to reduce congestion.

Introducing cycling infrastructure (e.g. bike lanes, bike parking and hire schemes) are ways in which cities can promote cycling, while creating pedestrian-friendly spaces can promote commuting, shopping and recreation.

Sofia plans to implement a park and bike lane around the city centre

Sofia's 'Green Ring' project aims to integrate the more peripheral and vulnerable neighbourhoods of the city into its sustainable urban mobility network. It will do this by adapting abandoned spaces and unused railways to create new green and cycling infrastructure that connects different neighbourhoods in the city.

POLIS Active Travel & Health Working Group - Cycling and walking

This is a working group meeting held by POLIS on 29 November 2022, 10;00-11:00 and is open to members of the POLIS Network only. To become a member, click here.

For cycling and walking to move up the mobility agenda, they must work together, rather than compete for space. Both have a common goal - more space for active mobility. This workshop will discuss how to build and reinforce this cohesion. With several speakers and a roundtable discussion, the workshop will explore the way forward.
