MALAGA council wants people to walk or use the bus or bicycles to get to work.
More than 38 per cent of car journeys in the city were to the workplace, explained Raul Lopez, the city’s Accessibility and Mobility councillor.
The European Mobility Week, held this year between September 18 and 24 is concentrating on efficient travel and encouraging alternative means of travel,
Urging Malagueños to “Travel efficiently: improve your mobility” the councillor presented his department’s programme of “appropriate” activities related to EU objectives set for 2020, also known as the 20/20/20 Initiative. These include a circuit of the city by bike and scooter using the city’s bicycle lane on Sunday, September 18.
One of the principal challenges in meeting EU goals was reducing journeys in private vehicles, most of which depended on fossil fuels, Lopez said.
With European Mobility Week urging a changeover to more efficient and cleaner transport, Malaga council hoped that citizens would continue the good habits they learnt during the campaign once it was over.
