A sustainable mobility system is one that seeks to provide access to goods, services, sources of work and social networks to everyone, while trying to limit the negative impacts of mobility, in the short and long term, in environmental, social and economic aspects. The concept of sustainable mobility emerges as a new paradigm when it comes to understanding the relationship between people, mobility and the city. Mobility, in addition to responding to a need, is also a right, by which it must be favored in an inclusive way, putting people, their needs and varied characteristics at the center, so that each individual can move and develop their skills, activities, being able to access equally the benefits that the environment can provide. This is how urban, technological and social aspects arise where the territory, vehicles, but most importantly, people interact.
Sustainable mobility can be considered to be one that:
limits gas emissions and waste generation, minimizes energy consumption and favours the use of renewables, reuses and recycles their components, minimizes the use of space dedicated to mobility and the generation of noise.
is economically accessible, operates efficiently, offers alternatives in terms of travel modes, and contributes to the development of the economy and the competitiveness of cities and regions.
allows access to the city and the satisfaction of the needs of individuals, companies and societies, in a safe and equitable way (taking into account socio economic aspects, gender, different capacities, etc.), within each generation and considering future generations.
