Approaching the challenges comprehensively
When you want to implement sustainable urban transport, you will need to approach the challenges comprehensively. Introducing a sustainable urban transport system in your city will require a lot of stakeholders, support, time and budget. Start a stakeholder process to assess and discuss measures, to become able to implement and communicate a comprehensive sustainable urban mobility plan and to integrate transport into your climate change action plans. Make sure, you are not alone in all these endeavours. Create public institutions, responsible for sustainable urban transport such as an integrated city and transport planning authority or a public transport alliance. Moreover, encourage citizens to start NGOs or set up customer associations. Quantifying emissions as well as monitoring the performance of your measures is always a good step to prove the benefits of your ambitions for a more sustainable urban transport.
