MEPs call for better urban mobility for citizens


Publication date: 02 December 2015


On 2 December, the European Parliament adopted a report on sustainable urban mobility. FIA Region I welcomes the balanced outcome, which acknowledges that diverse local situations must not be decided upon in Brussels.

 

Jacob Bangsgaard, FIA Region I Director General, said: “With the population in European cities growing by 2 million each year, policymakers need a clear strategy to bring about the mobility solutions that can meet the needs of city residents. Intelligent Transport Systems should be swiftly deployed, as they can greatly improve life in European cities. Mobility fosters growth and society suffers when urban transportation is not optimised. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution.”
