Avoid negative health, safety, and environment impacts of urban mobility

This highly diverse and important challenge contains areas around electrification of vehicles, creating a safer environment for travellers within the city and, last but definitely not least: reducing air pollution.

Improve urban logistics with a focus on last mile distribution

The focus of last mile delivery is based on low carbon and low externality delivery to the final customer.

Improve public transport service provision

The focus is centred around improved operation of busses, trams and trains incl. interchanges such as inter modal hubs and Park and Ride stations. It includes improvement of the service provision with punctuality via traffic priority and digital ticketing.

Improve the quality of public space

The challenge is concerned with a variety of different ways taking space away from (mostly road) mobility infrastructure and enabling different usage of that area. Two of the core areas included, are the reduction and better management of parking spaces and making infrastructure more flexible.

Improve traffic flow management (incl. ITS)

The focus is on processing and producing mobility data, developing good practices related to Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and managing service disruptions through efficient use of data.

Avoid transition barriers

It deals with the structural, administrative and political work to transform the institutions and organizations involved in the city administration in accordance with the future steps to be taken to improve mobility. It focuses on infrastructure works that support autonomous driving and solutions that encourage the use of other transportation vehicles by reducing the use of personal vehicles.
