Collective passenger transport

Many European cities face increasing problems of congestion. A high-quality, modern and energy-efficient public transport system that is well integrated with other modes is key to reducing car traffic and creating an appealing urban environment.

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

Efforts include for instance improving security and safety, and making it accessible to people with reduced mobility. There is also a focus on building up clean and energy-efficient public transport fleets.

Moreover, integrated ticketing is crucial to make public transport and intermodal travel attractive options. Examples include smart cards that allow users to travel on different modes of public transport, or Park and Ride services that integrate parking fees and public transport fares.
