Solutions For
Low-Carbon Urban Mobility

Reducing transport emissions is a crucial challenge for greening central Europe`s economies and also a major goal of the EU Green Deal.

Changes to urban mobility take time and are complex. Smart and green solutions in functional urban areas (FUA) have to take into account interactions between “urban cores” and their “hinterlands”. In central Europe, many FUAs face similar challenges when greening their mobility. They need integrated approaches to address the vast diversity of territorial aspects (from energy demand, air pollution, congestion and urban logistics to public transport services, mobility behaviour and good governance) and to achieve net zero GHG emissions. In all this, digitalisation and novel technologies show significant potentials to help green the future of urban mobility.


Ongoing activities of our projects include:

  • Planning sustainable urban mobility 
  • Improving the quality and efficiency of green, urban public transport services  
  • Addressing smart traffic and mobility management, including commuting solutions  
  • Fostering sustainable multimodal connections between urban and peri-urban areas  
  • Developing sustainable multimodal urban freight and logistic solutions (including the “last mile”)
  • Reducing greenhouse gases and other air pollutants from urban transport  
  • Improving the accessibility of urban public transport for everyone, especially the elderly and frail people

Solutions created by Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects include: 

Handbook with pilot actions for low-carbon mobility in functional urban areas

Central European competence centre for sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP)

Toolkit for developing, monitoring and evaluation of the workplace mobility plans

► Guidelines on low-carbon emission landside accessibility to airports
