EP for a modal shift to sustainable transport in cities

The EP resolution on Tuesday, 9 May 2023, on the new EU urban mobility framework, adopted by 485 votes to 31, and 113 abstentions on Tuesday, stresses that urban mobility is crucial to people’s quality of life and the functioning of economy. MEPs add that all modes of transport and their users are important, including those groups with special needs, transport poor or commuters. They need smart, accessible, affordable and seamless transport, the resolution says. It also urges EU governments and cities to address transport poverty by offering sustainable mobility vouchers or reduced price mobility schemes.

MEPs call on the Commission to improve measures with respect to green and sustainable transport, more digital solutions, and improving road safety.
