Outline of the initiative

The European Commission wishes to explore with the public and all other relevant stakeholders on how best to contribute with targeted EU-level action to high-quality and sustainable urban transport and mobility for all users in the 27 EU Member States.

In the consulttaion you are asked to express your opinion on the relevant challenges identified by the Commission's services. Additional contributions, e.g. through position papers, should be sent to the email address

How to submit your contribution?

We strongly recommend that you submit your contribution via the online questionnaire. However, your contribution can also be sent to MOVE-APUM@EC.EUROPA.EU or by post to the following address:

European Commission DG MOVE
Unit C.1 – Clean transport and sustainable urban mobility
DM28 – 750
B-1049 Brussels

We recommend you to print out the questionnaire to allow you to draft your answers to the open text questions carefully before filling-in the online questionnaire.

Please note that the questionnaire may look different in the hard copy (printed) form and that in the online version some of the questions which are conditional on an answer may not appear.

Please also note that the online idle time is 90 minutes. If you leave the opened form untouched for more than 90 minutes, your session will time out and your replies will be lost.

Questions are either compulsory or optional. If any of the compulsory fields have not been filled in, the system will not allow you to submit the questionnaire but will redirect you to the incomplete answer and give you an opportunity to correct it. An error message will appear in a purple/red colour under the question in which a problem occurred.

Note that you should not use the ‘Back’ button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen to navigate the online questionnaire, because this will lead to a loss of all the data that you have already inserted. For navigation, you should use the buttons ‘Next’ and ‘Previous’ at the bottom of the questionnaire page instead.

When you will successfully have submitted the questionnaire, a confirmation message will appear on your screen and you will be able to print your answers. Please record your registration number.

Important notice

Contributions may be submitted in any official EU language. Nevertheless, in order to facilitate the work and allow easy access to all submission, we would appreciate it if contributions could be submitted in the English language or, in the absence thereof, at least a summary in the English language.
