Road transport is key to delivering the goals of the European Green Deal. This includes the targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and achieving climate neutrality by 2050. The current EU rules on CO2 emission standards are vital for reducing emissions from new heavy-duty vehicles. As announced in the smart and sustainable mobility strategy, the Commission will review this legislation and will set more ambitious emission-reduction targets for such vehicles.
Multimodal digital mobility services, such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) applications, route-planners or ticket vendors, help to compare different travel options, choices and prices, and in some cases facilitate the purchase of mobility products. With this public consultation, the Commission would like to better understand how citizens and stakeholders are using multimodal digital mobility services and what challenges and barriers they identify.
EU environmental rules aim to ensure that end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are managed sustainably. They seek to eliminate hazardous substances in cars and require that most ELV parts and materials are reused or recycled. This initiative proposes improved collection, treatment and recycling of ELVs.
The aim is to obtain information and reactions from the most relevant stakeholders and the general public on the main orientations of the planned EU urban mobility framework. More specifically, the consultation should provide information on how urban areas in the EU can contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, how to improve the quality of life of the urban population in the EU, and how to increase support for ways of more sustainable transportation.
To help the EU build on its 2013 urban mobility package and meet its 2050 climate target, this initiative proposes measures to encourage EU countries to develop urban transport systems that are safe, accessible, inclusive, affordable, smart, resilient and emission-free.
Tachographs are devices used to record the activity of lorry drivers. This measure sets new technical specifications for ‘smart’ tachographs, to be fitted in vehicles as of August 2023. Last day 25th of March.
EU policy on transport infrastructure aims to facilitate transport across Europe and reduce regional, economic and social disparities by developing interconnected infrastructure for air, road, rail and shipping. This policy is governed by Regulation 1315/2013, which sets guidelines for: national and EU investment in transport infrastructure and targeted funding under the Connecting Europe Facility and other relevant EU schemes.This initiative will revise these guidelines.
