When mobility is just around the corner

What kind of mobility do we want?

Mobility models directly determine the resulting urban spaces: a city designed for the people or for private motor vehicles. Barcelona is making a collective commitment to move towards a mobility model that city residents have been calling for: having more quality urban space available, less pollution and more accessibility based on four cornerstones.

Safe mobility

A city where public spaces are transformed into comfortable and peaceful places for collective and shared mobility, protecting the most vulnerable users - pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists - and guaranteeing legislative compliance.

The goal is to minimise the risks associated with the complex existence of the various modes of transport and thereby reduce accident rates to zero.

Sustainable mobility

A sustainable, low-carbon city giving priority to urban life and collective well-being, capable of creating comfortable urban spaces that promote positive community life among citizens.

Introducing new mobility-management technologies or enabling a transition towards more efficient modes (from private motor vehicles to public or non-motorised transport) are the main lines of action here.

Fair mobility

A city where everyone has the same opportunities when it comes to travelling, whether a pedestrian or cyclist or a user of other means of transport.

All city residents have the right to a sustainable, safe and healthy means of travel through the city, and to ensure that this is possible, public transport has to have a space reserved besides the one used by private transport.

Efficient mobility

A city where mobility enables people to move about using essential movements, dispensing with those that bring no advantages and incur an environmental, social or economic cost for the whole of society, in other words, which prove to be inefficient.

Achieving smoother-flowing traffic, optimising collective public transport (carrying more people in less time and with less consumption of resources), providing citizens with comfort for travelling and enjoying public spaces are, among other things, strategies that enable more people to move about while consuming less energy.

The city of your dreams in seven steps

Model we want
Spot the differences

Between the city we have now, where private and motorised mobility takes priority, and a city focused on pedestrians with more green spaces, fewer cars and motorcycles and more public transport. Which do you prefer?

More bicycle lanes

An option for moving about the city that does not pollute and is accessible to everyone. Safe cycle lanes for a more sustainable city.

A connected tram

High-capacity ground-level transport that is silent, less polluting and very accessible for all users.

More people

A city designed for people becomes a health city with quality public space where people can walk, play, do sport and breathe cleaner air.

More rational use of cars

A city which uses private motor vehicles more rationally becomes a less polluted and fairer city.

A greener city

Una ciutat on el gris es fon amb el verd, on la natura troba el seu lloc i ens ofereix espais més saludables.

More metro connections

Un transport soterrat d’alta capacitat que connecta la ciutat amb una xarxa que cada cop arriba a més barris.

A new bus network

Una xarxa de bus amb una bona freqüència de pas, més regularitat i fiabilitat de servei, que connecta barris i persones.

Four projects that are complemented to achieve sustainable mobility

Xarxa de bus

A new bus network

Introducing eleven new lines, so once the project gets off the ground it will have eight horizontal lines, seventeen vertical lines and three diagonal lines.

Benefits

More frequent services and reduced waiting and travel times, making the service even more regular and reliable. The new bus network paves the way for the transition from private vehicles to public transport. The final deployment is expected to cover 67% of the city’s territory and reach as much as 95% of the population, with a high-performance bus service.

Línea 10

A widely demanded metro line: L10

Serving the La Marina de Port and La Marina del Prat Vermell neighbourhoods, with two new stations (Foneria and Foc Cisell).

Benefits

Better mobility for 70,000 citizens and a local residents’ connection with the rest of the metro network through the La Torrassa (L1), Zona Universitària (L3) and Collblanc (L5) interchanges, while offering a direct connection to the airport. This project is in response to the long-standing public demand of a densely populated area in Hospitalet poorly connected to Barcelona. The project will help to boost the development of the Sants-Montjuïc district, especially along the Passeig de la Zona Franca axis.

carrils bici

New bicycle lanes

One of the more ambitious of the city’s goals is to achieve that 95% of the population has a bicycle lane within 300 metres of their home. This network will operate, as it has so far, by adding specific lanes for bicycles and “cyclable” roads. There will be a 165% increase in bicycle lanes compared to today's, reaching as many as 308 km.

For further information

Benefits

Increased user demand for bicycles, offering safer options which minimise conflicts with pedestrians. It therefore proves to be the most sustainable, least polluting and most accessible means of transport for the public.

Tramvia connectat

A connected tram

The tramway is now an essential part of mobility in Barcelona, one of the means of transport most appreciated by the public. It is a modern, sustainable and efficient means of transport and will be even more so once its lines have been connected.

Connecting people to more quality public spaces, numerous neighbourhoods with extra interchangeability of means and new municipalities, taking it to a metropolitan scale as well. A network connected by 3.6 km of new tramway.

Benefits

Improved public transport in Barcelona, reduced atmospheric and noise pollution, and connecting municipalities and citizens from very diverse social and economic situations. This is a very efficient and sustainable means of transport: maximum capacity, minimum consumption and low emissivity.

A healthy city, the city we want

Beyond mobility

The public is becoming increasingly aware of the kind of city it wants. A city with less pollution, less noise and more greenery to improve people’s health and quality of life.

A city with friendly public spaces for residents, for use in a whole range of different ways, such as playing games, taking strolls, doing sport, sharing moments and meeting people, with modern, advanced facilities that promote meeting spaces and which are accessible to everyone, wherever they live.

When public spaces are improved for the benefit of the people, cities are transformed into true 21st-century cities. And one way of improving them is to commit to public transport and sustainable mobility.

We are talking about connecting people, neighbourhoods and districts, municipalities and indeed Barcelona in all its aspects.
