On 15-17 March, more than 200 city representatives and urban mobility experts met in Lisbon to discuss ways to implement a new mobility model.

The meeting had a special focus on accessibility, and electric and shared mobility. Lisbon aims to reinvent mobility through coherent measures, such as e-bike sharing, corporate e-car sharing, and e-logistics. The city operates a micro e-mobility hub that integrates shared mobility services.
 
Toulouse’s ’Metro: Draw me a station‘ project allows cognitively disabled people to travel by themselves relying on visual aids that help them easily
memorise their journeys.
 
Madrid offers an inspiring example of citizen participation in mobility-related decision making processes. Based on an online call for ideas, city experts and planners turned the most popular concepts into real projects. These and more case studies, as well as the conclusions of the Lisbon meeting, are available in the inspirational toolkit. The next mobility forum meeting will take place in Toulouse in October.
