CIVITAS is an EU initiative for supporting and evaluating the implementation of integrated sustainable and energy efficient urban transport strategies in European cities. The current phase (CIVITAS PLUS II) focuses on designing, implementing and testing innovative strategies for sustainable urban transport aiming a small number of well defined, integrated projects.

The measures in the participating cities range from energy efficient vehicles and ICT tools for traffic management to the promotion of soft modes, like cycling and walking. The CIVITAS PLUS II project ‘2MOVE2’ project foresees the implementation of innovative transport measures in the four partner cities. Some examples of measures:

  • Brno (Czech Republic) plans to offer public transport with electric minibuses.
  • Tel-Aviv (Israel) will develop transport solutions for high density employment areas.
  • Malaga (Spain) aims to promote cycling by offering a bike-rental system.
  • Stuttgart (Germany) will implement a test track for emission based traffic control.

The Technion Institute (Israel), the public transport company of Brno DPMB, the German company SSP Consult and the University of Stuttgart complete the consortium. The official kick-off meeting of ‘2MOVE2’ took place from January 31 to February 1, 2013, with the political kick-off scheduled for June 18, 2013 in the city of Stuttgart.

Together we can save millions of lives.
