2.1 Mobility in Urban Areas

Cities deliver a lot of services (jobs, education, culture, hospitals, …) not only for citizens, but also for rural communities around the cities.

It will take into account the complexity of urban areas (integration with land planning, multimodality, public support, new mobility modes). (extract from the Strategic Plan)
