European Mobility weeks runs every year from the 16 to 22 September and it’s aim is to encourage European local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite their citizens to try out alternatives to car use.

The week culminates in a car free day, where those towns and cities set aside areas for pedestrian/cycling or public transport use zones for a day.
