Janet Sanz Cid
Fourth Deputy Mayor
In charge of the Area of Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility
District Councillor for Nou Barris
The majority of journeys made within the city are of short or medium distance, very suited to be made on foot, by bicycle or by public transport. To get to work, run errands, buy groceries, go to the theatre or simply enjoy a stroll through the city streets: the best way to get around Barcelona is by walking, by bicycle or by public transport.
Barcelona is working to improve air quality and comfort for the public and is therefore committed to healthier mobility, by improving public space for more sustainable modes of transport, reducing the burden of private motorised vehicles, committing to more efficient means of public transport, and prioritising clean energies to fuel private vehicles.
The city’s mobility strategy follows what is set out in the Urban Mobility Plan for 2013-2018, with actions that seek to achieve a quality public space for all neighbourhoods, to encourage co-existence and cohesion, and to guarantee a healthy, safe environment for everyone.
Councillor for Mobility at Barcelona City Council

Mobility free of fumes guarantees the right to breathe clean air. Choose sustainable transport and contribute to improving the quality of life in your city.
Cities are nicer when we travel through them on foot. In Barcelona, people rather than cars are at the centre of mobility. A commitment that benefits everyone.
