What is EcoMobility?
EcoMobility refers to environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive way of local mobility, combining the use of non-motorized means of transport such as walking, cycling and wheeling with the use of public transport and light electric vehicles, provided electric power stems from renewable energy sources. EcoMobility allows people to move in their local environments without utilizing privately owned motor vehicles, and goods to be distributed with city-scale vehicles without combustion engines.
