Strategies and policies

The EU works with cities and regions to develop a sustainable urban mobility policy, including efficient public-transport systems and good connectivity throughout their home country.

It also strives to improve the quality of life in cities by promoting active mobility solutions, such as walking and cycling, and by ensuring good accessibility for residents and commuters.
