Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Living Lab - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has already developed a Sustainable Mobility Plan without distinguishing between citizens and visitors. In the framework of the DESTINATIONS project, mobility strategies and relevant technical measures will be developed & carried out in order to encourage & allow the use of alternative sustainable modes of transport by tourists and citizens.

Approach for Las Palmas de Gran Canaria


The project builds up an integrated approach to address mobility and tourism. It will establish a mobility office to monitor and evaluate the implementation of the current SUMP, to update mobility patterns information and carry out different mobility studies or actions. One of the most ambitious projects in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, and some measures of CIVITAS DESTINATIONS will help develop it.
