Position paper – The new EU Urban Mobility Framework
How to make European cities more liveable is an ongoing debate at EU level. This is why the recently published ‘New EU Urban Mobility Framework’ (UMF) is timely, as it provides a renewed policy framework to help cities meet their objectives for sustainable mobility.
The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) fully supports the UMF’s aim of striving for more sustainable, inclusive, affordable and resilient urban mobility. Indeed, ACEA’s members are committed to developing sustainable mobility solutions for ‘liveable’ cities’ that provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems
ACEA’s key recommendations are:
- Users are at the centre of transport planning
- Inclusive mobility thanks to coherent pricing policies
- Sustainability depends on framework conditions, not on modes
- No mode of transport is consistently ‘more sustainable’ per se
- A level playing field between public and private transport providers
- The key role of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in cities
- Sufficient charging and refuelling infrastructure
- A positive business environment and an alignment of regulations across cities
- Foster efficient governance
ACEA fully supports the Urban Mobility Framework’s aim of striving for more sustainable, inclusive, affordable and resilient urban mobility.
