Publication date: 18 May 2004

The European Commission announced yesterday 17 cities joining the CIVITAS programme for develoing clean urban transport: Burgos, Debrecen, Genoa, Krakow, La Rochelle, Ljubljana, Malmö, Norwich, Odense, Ploiesti, Potenza, Preston, Stuttgart, Suceava, Tallinn, Toulouse and Venice. The new cities are committed to the use of natural gas and biofuels in their transport fleets.


The CIVITAS initiative supports ambitious cities in introducing and testing measures to radically improve urban transport. It aims to achieve a significant change in the modal split towards sustainable transport modes, and to increase the use of clean vehicles and alternative fuels. The EU has granted CIVITAS a budget of 50 million Euro.
