EU Position

UITP input to the EU Urban Mobility Framework

  • Modal shift

In its Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy (2020), the European Commission recognised that technological change alone would not be sufficient to reduce CO2 emissions from transport. The broad deployment of new technologies takes time, and demand for transport will continue to grow. In our input to the upcoming Urban Mobility Framework, UITP asks the EU to recognise that a modal shift towards the most efficient and sustainable modes of transport is needed. As global warming progresses, it is high time to move from declarations to implementation.

In the decade following the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenge the public transport sector faces is threefold: it needs to decarbonise, digitalise and grow its services simultaneously. All three areas of transformation require political support and additional investments that go beyond a mere continuation of what is available today.
