Keeping us on the move

Stressful traffic and air pollution caused by transport are urgent issues in urban areas. Congestion costs the European economy over €100 Billion (1% of GDP) a year and 500,000 premature deaths a year associated to poor air quality – almost 16 times more than the number victims of road accidents.
