Turku is a trendsetter in Smart Mobility
As the first CIVITAS city in Finland, Turku has become an internationally noticed flagship city of sustainable solutions. The aim of Turku is to become carbon neutral by 2029 and Smart Mobility plays an important role in this process. Mobility in 2029 will consist primarily of walking, cycling, electric public transport and sharing of vehicles. Mobility has also become a service. All these themes were further developed in a four-year CIVITAS ECCENTRIC project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.
