The European Green Capital recognises the impact that well planned sustainable transport networks can have on the overall environment of a city and has listed local transport as one the 12 indicators. Effective sustainable urban transport means healthier citizens, more accessibility, improved safety, more efficient and cost-effective transport of people and goods.
