A mobility study is one of the key tools to achieve the sustainability of the area. This document allows a general mobility analysis to be performed, existing needs to be analyzed and future improvements planned. In other words, an analysis is made of the current situation to identify shortcomings and propose improvements with the aim of achieving more sustainable mobility.
The mobility studies developed at Mobility by Cycling Friendly aim to meet the requirements of the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda:
1. Representing an improvement in health of the population affected by mobility within the urban space.
2. Contributing to gender equality day by day where the differences between men and women in mobility are seen.
3. Ensuring the best mobility options for citizens.
4. Reducing air and noise pollution, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
5. Improving road safety within the urban area.
