UCLG partnered with UITP (the International Association of Public Transport) and provided insight from the perspective of the constituency of local and regional governments to its recently published policy paper on “Pathways to a multimodal lifestyle. Reinforcing public transport with active and micromobility”.
The policy paper makes the case for multimodal transportation as a strong alternative to personal car use, benefiting society and social inclusion, the economy, and the environment. It furthermore highlights the reasons why promoting public transport, walking, cycling, and shared services expands options and encourages sustainable habits. The paper stresses that to meet communities’ daily mobility needs, the integration of various modes of transport is crucial.
Key connections are made between local public service provision as essential to fostering social inclusion and environmental protection and multilevel governance as necessary to govern and legislate on public transport and its multifaceted links with society.
