Urban

Urban areas face common challenges even if in very different national contexts. Citizens’ needs and the need to comply with administrative and financial regulations are conditions that all local authorities in Europe must adhere to. The solution to these political challenges is usually planned through measures such as the improvement of the service, the most financially efficient use of different modes of transport, and the development of sustainable mobility. FSR Transport therefore aims to react to the need for the knowledge exchange and the discussion of best practices.
