With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611
The TRAM project just published the Methodological Guidelines with the purpose to identify accumulated practice within the three thematic areas of sustainable urban mobility:
Transport policies: measures/actions and plan aiming at reducing demand for emission intensive transport modes in urban areas, thus allowing a shift from more energy intensive and environmentally harmful to less polluting and more efficient modes of transport. This includes the shift toward the use of public and alternative transport modes and environmentally friendly distribution of freights.
Intelligent Transport Systems for urban area: technical solutions aiming at exploiting smart technologies and ITS as key enabler for urban mobility planning to create new opportunities for sustainable mobility by harnessing the intelligence of urban mobility system.
Low emission and green transport (improved vehicles and fuels): projects and technologies for the introduction of new types of zero and low emission public and private transport; renewable fuels; electric vehicles; eco – friendly passengers and freights transport modes.
TRAM project (Towards new Regional Action plans for sustainable urban Mobility), funded by INTERREG Europe, fosters the development of a competitive, resource-efficient and low carbon-oriented European transport system by improving the efficacy of regional and local policies on urban mobility in five geographical areas of the European Union.
