Vienna is moving together. Like other modern cities, Vienna aims to ensure that everyone gets from A to B safely – regardless of their how much they earn, where they live, or what their needs are. Over 5 million trips are made in Vienna every day: on foot, by bike, by public transport, or by car. Vienna will continue to grow in the coming years, and everyone wants to stay mobile. If our current mobility patterns continue, we’ll see a 12% increase in car traffic by 2025, which would mean more noise, more air pollution, and more traffic congestion. Vienna is looking ahead with its new Urban Mobility Concept. By 2025, eco-friendly means of transport are to account for 80% of all trips made in Vienna, so the city can maintain its high quality of life. Future urban mobility will seamlessly integrate different transport modes and promote car- and bike-sharing. This is for everyone’s benefit: owning a car in a city is twenty times more expensive than buying an annual pass for the Vienna public transport network. More than a third of the city’s population are already annual pass holders. Cycling and walking are good for your health: just 30 minutes per day increases your life expectancy by several years. Two thirds of Vienna’s road space is currently reserved for cars, which are parked 95% of the time. Fewer cars means more space for walking, playing and meeting other people. It also frees up road space for deliveries and other trips that must be made by car. Vienna is expanding its public transport network, making cycling and walking even more attractive, and facilitating car- and bike-share systems. In the future, urban mobility will bring us all together, saving time and money, keeping us healthy and making the city more attractive for everyone.
