Enhancing urban mobility while reducing congestion, accidents and pollution is a common challenge to all major cities. The Commission supports these goals and in 2013 has put forward the Urban Mobility Package including proposals for relevant action at local, Member State and EU level. It was proposed to reinforce EU support in the area by encouraging the sharing of experiences and showcasing best practices, by providing targeted financial support through the European funds and by providing financial support for research and innovation.
There have been important developments with impact on urban mobility, such as the growing importance of cities, disruptive changes in transport and mobility of both technological and societal nature, as well as rising mobility (congestion), health (air pollution) and climate (emissions) challenges.
It is therefore appropriate to examine whether this framework is fit for purpose and delivers as intended. In the context of the evaluation, the Commission will carry out several consultation activities to gather information and feedback from the relevant stakeholders and wider public in relation to the effects of the Urban Mobility Package.
The consultation is open until 04 Dec 2019 and can filled in here.
