Bistrița (Romania)

The main goal of the Bistrița Municipality's SUMP 2015-2030 is to enhance the accessibility of the urban areas and also provide sustainable mobility and transport services.

Bistrita is currently starting to use the ERDF for mobility issues: 45 km of bike lanes will be constructed until 2023. The Green Line is a pilot project under preparation, establishing a new local public transport line that crosses Bistrița city through the historical centre, using a dedicated priority lane for electric buses. The use of this lane will be free of charge for 5 years, ensuring a modal shift from private car to public transport. It represents a single solution that responds to several challenges: reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, urban mobility, and tourist accessibility.

Also regarding alternative mobility, Bistrita Municipality promotes the cycling culture through local awareness activities. We encourage citizens to use the bicycle not only for leisure and sports activities, but also as a mean of transport to get easier to work and school.
