The importance of investing in sustainable urban mobility in the post-2020 EU budget

In May 2018, the European Commission will put forward a comprehensive draft proposal of the next long-term EU budget, the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF). Taking into consideration both the Brexit’s impact on the EU budget, as well as the EU’s strategic ambitions regarding climate change, energy efficiency or the Urban Agenda, the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) is convinced that these developments create an outstanding opportunity to re-think the existing balance of the EU budget and to shift the focus on urban areas and urban populations. This urban shift in the EU budget, with clearly structured financing lines for clean urban mobility and public transport, will boost the European economy and well-being of its societies in the new decade to come.
