The VIVALDI project sought to implement an integrated package of innovative transport strategies and measures in five EU cities, and to assess their contribution to improving four key urban policy goals:
- urban vitality and economic success;
- social inclusion;
- health and well-being; and
Through a reduction in motorised traffic and a measurable shift to environmentally friendly modes of transport, VIVALDI led to a substantial reduction in emissions of air pollutants and noise. Since a reduction in demand for travel was considered as the most effective way to cut emissions, the project comprised a range of measures in the field of demand management, including car sharing. There were also attempts to further reduce emissions by introducing clean vehicles.
