On 1 July 2020, the European Commission published a public consultation on its roadmap for a strategy for sustainable and intelligent mobility. Comments can be submitted until 23 September 2020. The Commission is working on a comprehensive strategy for sustainable and intelligent mobility. Taking into account the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on the sector, the strategy aims to provide a path for the sector towards sustainable and digital transitions and to build a resilient and crisis-proof transport system. It aims to achieve the targets set in the European Green Deal (to reduce transportrelated greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050) and to ensure that the European transport sector is prepared for the clean, digital and modern future. The targets include: (a) increasing the use of zero-emission vehicles; (b) providing sustainable alternative solutions to the public and businesses; (c) supporting digitisation and automation; and (d) improving connectivity and access.
In this context, the public consultation seeks to gather the views of citizens and stakeholders on the elements of the strategy. The questionnaire also looks at how the current framework set out in the 2011 White Paper has worked so far.
