Urban space management
The ultimate scarce product in urban mobility is urban space. The way urban space is distributed and designed has a major impact on the way people and goods move in the city. In their effort to tackle pollution and congestion, cities are starting to give more importance to a fairer distribution of the urban space with a view to prioritise sustainable transport modes.
Transport innovation has a strong impact on the way public space is used. The rise of new mobility services and other innovative mobility solutions, for instance, call for new strategies to manage curb-side space in a more dynamic way.

POLIS favours the exchange of its members on the reorganisation of urban space to favour sustainable mobility in the Working Group on Access.
