Sevilla (ES) in the European Mobility Week 2010

Sevilla, city member of Energy Cities participates in the European Mobility Week 2010. The European Mobility Week of 2010 motto “Travel Smarter, Life Better!” fully embraces the principles which have driven the latest mobility policies developed by the Seville Council.

What does travel smart mean? In Seville, common people will tell you it means to have the possibility to choose a transport mode according to their economical, social and environmental needs at any time.

As Seville offers a vast cycling network with more than 120 km of lanes, citizens can choose bicycle as a transport mode to travel in the city. Citizens can get around by bicycle to the main urban areas and there is currently a daily number of 65,000 users. Moreover, citizens also have the possibility to choose the underground: 8 millions users are now travelling using the first line which opened in April 2009. The tramway represents another mobility possibility and directly connects to the underground, urban buses and commuter trains networks. Sustainable mobility is therefore provided thanks to modern and intermodal transport facilities.

Beyond the current transport available in Seville, the City Council promotes mobility campaigns aiming to avoid car use. In order to combat this main mobility issue, traffic regulation programmes have been developed in Seville. Measures such as one-way streets, speed limits in the old town and the development of pedestrian areas have therefore been adopted.

It is now time to identify the achieved goals and to highlight the environmental benefits of such improvements. The European Mobility Week in Seville celebrates its Third Sustainable Mobility Symposium through workshops, environmental educational actions and exhibitions to promote eco-transport and car-sharing.

The following activities will be organised in Seville during the European Mobility Week 2010:


16th of September

  • Opening.


17th to 19th of September

  • 2nd Seville Sustainable Mobility Exhibition.


16th to 22nd of September

  • Workshops and activities for the general public:
  • Workshop "Improving your cycling knowledge”, in each district of Seville.
  • Bicycle Repairing Workshop, in each district of Seville.
  • Film Exhibition - Forum Topics: Energy revolution in transport; Seville on wheels.
  • Two cycling routes including old monuments and the Metropolitan Green Belt.
  • Guided Visits of the main urban public transport facilities.
  • Bike festival.
  • Efficient Driving Courses.
  • School Road Safety Education Campaign.


21st of September

  • 3rd Symposium on Sustainable Mobility.


22nd of September

  • Car Free Day.
  • Opening of the Access Control System to the Old Town.

By joining this programme, Seville City Council made the commitment to implement permanent measures for sustainable transport. For the year 2010, different measures are remarkable: the extension of the public transport platforms and of the bus-taxi ways to 12.5 km and the installation of LED lighting in 40% of traffic lights in the city.
In 2011, Seville organises Velocity, one of the biggest challenges of sustainable mobility events in Europe. European Mobility Week 2010 is the previous event before this date and its success is expected to go beyond the previous editions.
