The Council of Ministers approved the new strategy last Friday, at the proposal of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA).

We already know the roadmap that the central executive is going to set for sustainable mobility policies, closely related to the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan set by the European Commission.

This mobility strategy will shape mobility policies for the next 10 years. Among its main goals are:

  1. Decarbonising the economy
  2. Reducing CO2 emissions.
  3. Digitization for modal connectivity in transport in logistics with the rest of Europe.
  4. Environmental, social and economic sustainability for daily mobility where an economic-social balance is sought among all citizens, with a commitment to greener means of transport and a circular economy.

This document presented by MITMA presents more than 40 lines of action and 150 measures to make changes in terms of sustainable mobility in our country a reality.

Based on these lines and strategies, MITMA seeks to overcome new challenges so that sustainable mobility can be understood as a right, an element of social cohesion and economic growth to provide solutions to the everyday problems of citizens.

To this end, this strategy is based on 3 pillars or basic principles.

  • Safety.
  • Social, economic and environmental sustainability.
  • Connectivity.

This mobility strategy is a challenge for everyone, which is why the ministry itself has implemented a participatory drafting process based on the "Open Mobility Dialogue".

Finally, this strategy aims to ensure there is a good coordination between all parties so that these actions can be implemented in a large majority of municipalities to change the mobility of cities.
