Urban mobility an issue for Europeans


 

4 in 10 Europeans experience problems with urban mobility according to a new European Commission survey. Air pollution, congestion and travel costs are among the biggest mobility issues for EU citizens.


15 January 2014 - A Eurobarometer survey commissioned by the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport, titled “Attitudes of Europeans towards urban mobility” reveals that 4 in 10 Europeans experience problems with urban mobility and 40% of Europeans experience problems "often or sometimes" when travelling in cities. Moreover, air pollution, congestion and travel costs are among the biggest mobility issues for EU citizens. 


Among the countries most commonly reported for issues with air quality, congestion, traffic accidents and traffic costs, were Malta, Greece, Cyprus and Slovakia. Countries such as Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Latvia and Estonia consistently reported the lowest incidence of problems when travelling in cities.

The survey also polled Europeans on effective measures to improve urban mobility and found that improving provisions and decreasing the cost of using public transport were both highly popular responses.
