The European Commission has taken action on urban transport through various policies and funding of projects including CIVITAS. The 2009 Action Plan on Urban Mobility was a major step for European action in this area, and its implementation is helping to create cleaner and better urban transport systems.
The European Commission’s guiding document on transport from 2011, the White Paper on Transport, highlights the importance of the urban dimension. Among other actions is the target to phase out the use of conventionally-fuelled vehicles in cities by 2050.
