CIVITAS Case Study - New Public Transport Network in Vitoria - Gasteiz

In only one night the public transport network of Vitoria-Gasteiz was completely transformed. This was done in order to reverse the upward trend in the use of private cars, through transferring car users to public transport. A transit scheme was created according to the Superblocks philosophy that benefits public transport and improves efficiency in terms of accessibility, coverage, service and frequency. The citizens of Vitoria-Gasteiz went to sleep on the 29 October 2009, seeing the old network off at 23:00 P.M., and woke up the next morning with a new network, launched at 5:00 A.M.
