Plan for defining the future of Barcelona's Urban Mobility underway

Developing the new Urban Mobility Plan (2019-2024) is underway. The accompanying participatory process allows citizens’ perceptions and proposals to be gathered, so that the city can respond to people's mobility needs. Together, we can achieve the mobility we all want.

Following sector-focused sessions held this summer, four sessions are to be conducted with various groups – such as young people, senior citizens and gender – on different themes in order to tackle Barcelona’s main challenges when it comes to mobility.

These sessions are open to everyone, with no prior booking required, and intended for enabling citizens to share their thoughts on what goals should be worked toward concerning the future of Barcelona’s mobility: the Urban Mobility Plan 2019-2024.

The first session, to be held on 20 September at the Pati Llimona civic centre (Regomir, 3), will be Mobility in the city’s everyday life, dealing with mobility habits, reasons for travelling, different modes of transport co-existing and covering the needs of various groups of people.

The second session, entitled Safe mobility for everyone, is to be held on 26 September in the space Calàbria, 66, and will be all about the debate on achieving a safer city, with a special emphasis on the more vulnerable groups, one of which is children. We therefore in particular invite people involved with schools (teachers and parents) to take part.

In the third session, Public space and mobility, which is being held on 3 October at l’Espai Jove la Fontana (Gran de Gràcia, 190-192), we will debate and gather proposals on the city’s design such as ‘super islands’ and single surfacing, measures for reducing traffic, public-space distribution, and parking.

Lastly, the final session, Technology serving mobility, to be held on 10 October Centre Cívic la Farinera del Clot (Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 837), will deal with new resources, apps and technological advances employed for more efficient mobility (electric and self-driving vehicles, car-pooling, MAAS, T-Mobility, etc.).

All of the meeting are to take place at 6 pm.
