Collective Passenger Transport

Quality and efficiency of public transport and better integration with other modes.

This thematic group focuses on clean and energy-efficient public transport fleets, ticketing systems, service integration and intermodality, accessibility for people with reduced mobility, innovative public transport systems, management schemes and schemes for financing investments in collective transport modes.

CIVITAS cities are working on innovative ways to maximise the potential for local public transport systems through an accessible and fair service that is a fast and convenient alternative to the private car.

The “sharing” paradigm is shaking up the global economy scenario. People across the world are daily sharing an increasing number of material objects and immaterial services (from clothes and tools to houses, working spaces and also professional skills).

CIVITAS FACTS&FIGURES: Collective Passenger Transport measures in CIVITAS Plus cities (2008-2012)

Policy Recommendations For EU Sustainable Mobility Concepts based on CIVITAS Experience

The Policy Recommendations present the main findings arising from the evaluation of the CIVITAS Plus Collaborative Projects (CPs), which ran from 2008-2012.

This publication was written under the auspices of the CIVITAS POINTER project, which supported five collaborative projects (CP s) implemented within the framework of the third edition of the CIVITAS programme. Evaluation and monitoring were the key stones of CIVITAS POINTER. Drawing from first-hand, corroborated statistical evidence gathered from participating cities, this publication presents the results of the CIVITAS Plus cross-site evaluation and policy assessment. These findings support the development of clear European-level policy recommendations that have the potential for being embraced by all European cities — not just those which make up the CIVITAS community.

The document seeks to identify factors that can boost the effectiveness and consistency of future strategies, thereby securing greater sustainability in urban mobility patterns. Policy makers are provided with contemporary facts for debating purposes, and a number of conclusions and recommendations based on lessons learnt from CIVITAS Plus are put forward.

Giving back the public space to the people - Mobility measures in Vitoria-Gasteiz

In the context of the next CIVITAS study tour hosted by the city of  Vitoria-Gasteiz on the 196&20 June 2014, an interested document presenting the mobility measures implmented by the city has been created:  

The main measures presented:

  • Superblocks project;
  • Traffic calming measures;
  • Freight distribution areas and limitations;
  • New Public transport network;
  • Local Bicycle Mobility Plan.
