Quality of life also means reclaiming streets for the people. A traffic-calmed and connected Barcelona that promotes sustainable and accessible mobility that is safe and friendly for pedestrians and cyclists, capable of reaching everywhere through an efficient and clean public transport service within everyone’s reach.
The 2013-18 Barcelona Urban Mobility Plan (UMP) is the planning tool for defining the action lines governing urban mobility over the coming years.
Barcelona is a city committed to a safe, sustainable, fair and efficient safety model, which is opting to give greater centrality to non-polluting means of transport, by increasing, among other measures, the use of bicycles as a usual means of urban transport in the city.
Four of the five stages planned have so far been implemented, enabling the opening of 16 new lines from 2012 to 2016.
The City Council is seeing to every citizen's right to sustainable, safe, fair and efficient travel anywhere in the city. The two networks’ connection represents a clear commitment to environmental and mobility improvements.
Electric mobility, axis of innovation and competitiveness, contributes to reducing emissions and improving air quality, reducing noise pollution and drives the development and industrial transformation. Ajuntament de Barcelona is promoting a strategic line for the introduction of electric vehicles in the city to promote sustainable mobility and improve urban life.
