Mobility for an inclusive city

Room A3
17:15 – 18:45
Format: Keynotes

To address those actions on urban mobility and transport systems that allow building more inclusive cities. These may include actions for the modernization and improvement of service quality, capacity and coverage expansions, transformation or construction of new infrastructures, actions to improve the efficiency and profitability, use of clean energy, among others. In addition, this session will review examples of cities that have implemented inclusive mobility programs and policies conceived from a gender perspective, concession schemes for certain groups – for presenting social, physical or geographic exclusion conditions – or freeze transit fares.

Finally, it will assess policies that promote the use of alternative transportation modes (bicycle, Segway Personal Transporter, U3-X, etc.), the reduction of motorized traffic congestion, accident rates and derived health problems.
