About the project

The Cities-4-People project focused on sustainable and people-oriented transport as a solution to the many challenges linked to mobility and faced by urban and peri-urban areas today.

Aiming to implement mobility solutions developed by the people for the people, Cities-4-People tapped into participatory practices of social innovation and neighbourhood governance. The project built on three main pillars: citizen participation, community empowerment and sustainable urban planning.

Cities-4-People unfolded in five European areas: the Oxfordshire County, Hamburg District of Altona, Üsküdar in Istanbul, Budapest and Trikala. In these areas, Mobility Communities were established to bring together citizens, city authorities, mobility providers and innovation experts.

By developing and providing a framework of support services and tools, Cities-4-People empowered these communities to actively contribute to shaping their local mobility innovation ecosystems in line with a People-Oriented Transport and Mobility (POTM) approach. POTM encompasses a blend of new digital and social technologies under an inclusive and multidisciplinary approach. It does this in order to bring out solutions that have a low ecological footprint, a sharing mentality and the potential to solve real urban and peri-urban mobility issues.
