Our mobility and transport objectives
Brussels is no exception to the rule. Given the growing population, the high concentration of jobs and schools, and the large number of daily commuters, mobility to and within the Brussels-Capital Region is a priority for our leaders. The Government of the Brussels-Capital Region has targeted a 20 % reduction in road traffic by 2018. The intention is not to demonise the car, but to encourage rational vehicle use. The main way to achieve this is by improving public transport services and promoting walking and cycling. The aim is to guarantee citizens improved quality of life in a user-friendly environment.
New cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, the extension of the Villo! network, the development of intermodal transport, from walking, cycling and skating to public transport. Bit by bit behaviour is changing, to everyone’s convenience.
