The European Commission has published its plan for mobility across the continent, with a goal of a 90% cut in emissions by 2050.
The Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy details an action plan of 82 initiatives that the Commission says will it work on over the next four years.
The strategy has a number of milestones, such as 30 million zero-emission cars by 2030, a doubling of high-speed rail traffic and deployment of automated mobility at a large scale.
By 2035, the Commission is aiming for zero-emission large aircraft to be “market ready” by 2035 and by 2050, a multimodal, trans-European transport network will be in place.
The 82 initiatives have been folded into ten key areas for action including many around sustainability, such as zero-emission airports and ports, as well as healthy and sustainable inter-urban and urban mobility.
Further key areas target smart initiatives such as making tickets for multimodal journeys possible and boosting the use of data and artificial intelligence.
Adina Vălean, commissioner for transport, says: “As the backbone that connects European citizens and business, transport matters to us all. Digital technologies have the potential to revolutionise the way we move, making our mobility smarter, more efficient, and also greener."
