Cities are fundamental in the fight against climate change. Urban transport accounts for around 40% of emissions from the entire transport sector, and that is why urban mobility lies at the heart of the fight against climate change and the transition to a resource efficient and low carbon urban economy.

Given that cities are fundamental in meeting sustainable development goals, public transport's role in driving low carbon, resilient growth must be at the forefront of any sustainable urban mobility policy.
