Between September 16 and 22, the Slovenian capital took part in the European Mobility Week for the fifteenth consecutive time. In the annual international campaign, held this time under the slogan ‘Smart mobility. Strong economy.’, Ljubljana prepared a series of diverse and educational events and announced a dozen sustainability measures, the municipal website said.

As one of the cities advocating sustainable mobility as an economic advantage, the local authority restricted motor traffic on one street in each of its 17 communities for the World Car-Free Day on September 22, and organized a programme to promote the effort. The event focused on what can be introduced into public space instead of cars.

Under the scope of activities as the European Green Capital for this year, the month of September is dedicated to sustainable mobility and air quality. Ljubljana’s residents and visitors are invited to walk, cycle, use public transport or other forms of sustainable mobility.

In line with its transport policy, the City of Ljubljana is expanding surfaces for pedestrians and cyclists, and introducing one-way traffic on Eipprova Street. Traffic regime changes are also imposed in the Vodmat area. Other permanent sustainable mobility efforts include a boost in multimodality with new stations for the bicycle-sharing system, lanes, and a training site.

The capital will see 25 new charging stations for electric vehicles and the introduction of the technology at the on-call service of the public passenger transport company LPP.
