Abstract

Transport is one of the four priorities of the EU Thematic Strategy on Urban Environment. Cities concentrate 80% of European population and transport is a key element for their economic vitality. However it also produces pollution, noise, global warming, congestion, etc. Some cities have faced this problem - particularly aggravated by this relatively new phenomenon known as urban sprawl, perfectly distinguishable in new housing developments perfectly unsustainable-, through integrated strategies which takes account of the interrelations among land use patterns, transport supply and, last but not least, the role of the different modes of transport, in a sort of co-modality that includes walking and cycling. Sustainable Urban Transport Plan for cities or Company Management Plans for big industries look for those objectives.
