The 9th edition of the International Cities for Mobility Summit was organised and hosted by our member city, Stuttgart, on 18-19 June 2018. This year’s event focused on mobility trends and their influence on creating liveable urban in cities, with a special emphasis on innovations impacting positively citizens and making use of public space to prioritise sustainable modes of transport.

 
EUROCITIES co-organised a session on “New developments and services in urban public transport” which explored the best practices of our members Terrassa, Barcelona and the Catalonia Region and Stockholm:
-      Terrassa presented the Mobileye bus system : this system offering detection of pedestrians and cyclists is able to map the most dangerous spots in a city, enabling as well the local authorities to improve infrastructures and redesign the “hot spots”
-      Barcelona and the Catalonia region focused on the ExpressCat network of buses: these buses with high level of services (BHLS), offer more comfort to user, more sustainable vehicles and more intermodality and have therefore directly contributed to rethink the entire interurban bus network in the region.
-      The region of Stockholm which recently arrived second in the scoring of 100 cities world wide measuring the maturity of mobility, innovativeness and performance, gave the example of the bus bunching and bus service regularity
 
All presentations are now available on the summit website: https://www.cities-for-mobility.net/congress/international-congress-2018/.
