Fedarene Info 28 – Focus on Transport and Mobility

Autumn 2005

Promoting greener modes of travel (such as walking and cycling), encouraging the use of public transport, developing intermodality and increasing the use of biofuels to reduce CO2 emissions, are the crucial challenges for the next few years. Some initiatives in the transport and mobility sectors have already been implemented by regional energy and environment agencies. Three of these – Arpa Midi-Pyrénées, Arene Ile de France and Nenet Norbotten – gave a presentation of their project. Fedarene spoke with M. González Finat, Director of DG Transport about current and forthcoming European policies.
