Cleaner and better transport in cities

CIVITAS was one of the most successful EU programmes in promoting innovative solutions for sustainable development. It aimed to contribute to the goals of the European Union’s Transport White Paper by capitalising on the results of CIVITAS and creating an effective “value chain” for urban mobility innovation. CAPITAL helped to mainstream CIVITAS into other policy fields by identifying the capacity of sustainable transport measures to contribute to high‐level goals. CAPITAL created a dynamic knowledge centre and established national and regional networks facilitating exchanges and transfer of measures based on practical experiences.


UITP continues its engangement in the CIVITAS initiative within the frames of the CIVITAS SATELLITE and CIVITAS SUMP-PLUS project.
