What is Urban Mobility?

With over 60 % living in urban areas of over 10 000 inhabitants, we can say that a large majority of European citizens live in an urban environment. They live their daily lives in the same space, and share the same infrastructure for their mobility. 

This urban mobility is always under pressure. Future challenges ahead include growing urban populations, how to build and maintain infrastructure, the economic and environmental costs of congestion, demands for greater accessibility and safety, and the question of how to improve air quality. Based on a thorough analysis, EIT Urban Mobility and the Competence Hub will address various societal and urban mobility challenges.
