Research for TRAN Committee - Modal shift in European transport: a way forward

29-11-2018

The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the progress and potential of modal shift from road to more sustainable transport modes, with respect to the policy objectives set in the 2011 White Paper on transport. The study focuses both on passenger and freight transport, highlighting main barriers and factors that are hampering a more effective modal shift at EU level, and providing policy recommendations for the way forward.

Air Quality and urban traffic in the EU: best practices and possible solutions

05-10-2018

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the PETI Committee, aims at gaining deeper insights into air quality problems of cities and regions, which are often caused by traffic. Five cities and regions are analysed in more detail. General best practice examples and policy options are provided for transport, but also for domestic heating, construction work and integrated approaches.

Research for the TRAN Committee - Infrastructure funding challenges in the sharing economy

04-05-2017

The study analyses the disruption created by shared mobility in the funding of transport infrastructure. While recognizing the benefits of shared mobility in terms of reduction of private car use, the study identifies that there might be short term negative effects on the revenues of long distance railway and coach operators. It also points out other potential risks, which include capture of value by commissions charged by platforms mediating mass-transit services (Mobility as a Service), freeriding ...

While recognizing the benefits of shared mobility in terms of reduction of private car use, the study identifies that there might be short term negative effects on the revenues of long distance railway and coach operators. It also points out other potential risks, which include capture of value by commissions charged by platforms mediating mass-transit services (Mobility as a Service), freeriding and lower tax contributions. The study makes recommendations to reduce these risks.

Moving cycling forward: A coordinated approach to cycling for local and regional authorities in the EU

17-05-2016

This analysis presents an overview of the current state of cycling mobility in the European Union and of the benefits stemming from cycling as a means of transport. It examines the challenges linked to making cycling a regular transport mode and looks at what is being done across the EU to address the problems identified. After discussing recent EU developments, the analysis concludes that cycling potential could be maximised by coordinated action at all levels of local government administration. ...

This analysis presents an overview of the current state of cycling mobility in the European Union and of the benefits stemming from cycling as a means of transport. It examines the challenges linked to making cycling a regular transport mode and looks at what is being done across the EU to address the problems identified. After discussing recent EU developments, the analysis concludes that cycling potential could be maximised by coordinated action at all levels of local government administration. Building on the author's EPRS briefing Cycling mobility in the EU of May 2015, this analysis was produced at the request of the Committee of the Regions of the EU. A genuine shift towards greater cycling mobility can be achieved through cycling policies that are coordinated across all levels of administration. For reasons of subsidiarity, the main responsibility for delivering cycling policy is at national and local level. However, the EU could help strengthen these efforts by means of a strategic document which covers all the areas that impact on cycling in one text. In combination with appropriate funding, this could send a strong signal to all levels of administration that cycling is taken seriously as a means of transport which reduces urban congestion and pollution, while making people healthier.

Sustainable urban mobility gaining ground

02-03-2016

Cities are home to more than 70% of the EU population and generate about 85% of its GDP. As urban mobility relies heavily on conventionally fuelled private cars, cities suffocate from traffic congestion and pollution. Furthermore, urban CO2 emissions account for about 23% of the EU total and reducing them is key for meeting the EU's emissions reduction targets – in the spotlight since the United Nations COP21 Paris climate conference. The sustainable mobility concept addresses urban issues as a whole ...

Furthermore, urban CO2 emissions account for about 23% of the EU total and reducing them is key for meeting the EU's emissions reduction targets – in the spotlight since the United Nations COP21 Paris climate conference. The sustainable mobility concept addresses urban issues as a whole, promoting a shift towards greener transport, to make cities more liveable. This is an updated version of the text PE 572.788, prepared for the December 2015 plenary.

Research for TRAN Committee - The World is Changing. Transport Too.

15-01-2016

The (more and more urban) European population is growing and ageing. Mobile information and communication technologies are developing rapidly. Global competition and the fight against climate change are pressing. These developments all have an impact on transport as a whole. As this paper shows, mobility needs and patterns evolve; new transport services/systems emerge; transportation technologies aim to become more 'environmentally-efficient'. This transformation challenges the existing transport ...

The (more and more urban) European population is growing and ageing. Mobile information and communication technologies are developing rapidly. Global competition and the fight against climate change are pressing. These developments all have an impact on transport as a whole. As this paper shows, mobility needs and patterns evolve; new transport services/systems emerge; transportation technologies aim to become more 'environmentally-efficient'. This transformation challenges the existing transport sector's structure and governance and calls for major changes in the regulatory framework.

La mobilità urbana sostenibile guadagna terreno

30-11-2015

Le città ospitano oltre il 70% della popolazione dell'UE e generano circa l'85% del suo PIL. Poiché la mobilità urbana dipende fortemente dalle automobili private alimentate in modo convenzionale, la congestione del traffico e l'inquinamento soffocano le città. Inoltre, le emissioni di CO2 nelle aree urbane rappresentano circa il 23% delle emissioni totali dell'Unione, e la loro diminuzione è essenziale per conseguire gli obiettivi di riduzione delle emissioni dell'UE, sui quali sono puntati i riflettori ...

Il concetto di mobilità sostenibile affronta le tematiche urbane nella loro globalità, promuovendo la transizione verso forme di trasporto più ecologiche nella prospettiva di rendere le città più vivibili.

Urban mobility: Shifting towards sustainable transport systems

15-09-2014

Many European cities are confronted by increasing levels of traffic congestion due to high dependence on cars for mobility purposes. The negative economic and environmental side-effects are considerable. Reducing congestion in urban areas and improving options for sustainable and integrated mobility options in cities has therefore become a growing concern for EU policy makers. This document examines the issues at stake.
