The central region of Graz is growing and with it the need for a sustainable, innovative transport solution. On 25 February 2021, the Graz City Council, therefore, decided to accelerate the "future-oriented alliance for innovative mobility solutions in Graz and its central region" to achieve sustainable mobility and environmental goals - initially with an inventory of all existing concepts for holistic urban mobility: from a mini-subway to the large-scale expansion of the tram and suburban railway network.
Graz is currently working on achieving mobility, climate, and environmental goals. One of our objectives is to reach a public transport modal split of 30 percent (reduction of private motorized transport) in Graz. All these in a timely and realistic manner and also including the functional area of Graz. When setting the guidelines of the contemporary and high-performance public transport systems we want for the Graz metropolitan area, we aim to continue increasing the location and environmental qualities of the entire region.
We are also working on finding a way of profiting from the extraordinary expansion impulses of the supra-regional rail infrastructure in the next few years to create an efficient public transport mobility offer within the city of Graz, with the aim of increasing attractiveness also on a supra-regional level.
