Bicivia - a European good practice

| Subject: Sustainable Mobility, International Relations

The newsletter of the new European SMART-MR project includes the AMB's sustainable mobility project.

The coordination between the 36 metropolitan municipalities in the planning of the Bicivia project  has been chosen as one of the good practices that will appear in the newsletter of the new European SMART-MR project.

One of the reasons this project has been chosen is the consensus achieved in order to establish a 400 km cyclable network in the metropolitan area, based on the needs of this area.



New SMART-MR newsletter

In September, the first workshop of the SMART-MR project ‘Sustainable measures for achieving resilient transportation in metropolitan regions' took place in Ljubljana. The participants in this workshop discussed governance and participative planning in transportation. As a result, the first newsletter of this project will be published this month, and will include a compilation of good metropolitan practices on how to involve local actors in transportation planning.

Besides the Bicivia project, the newsletter will also highlight the participative process in Gothenburg for the application of a congestion charge on urban traffic, which has resolved a very controversial mobility issue.

SMART-MR is a European project that aims to achieve sustainable measures for metropolitan transportation and mobility which lead to a future with lower carbon emissions. This project is funded by the Interreg Europe programme and led by Ljubljana. The other metropolitan areas participating in this project are Oslo and Akershus, Helsinki, Gothenburg, Budapest, Rome, Porto and Barcelona.
