ERTICO strives to create a widespread deployment of a new generation of cooperative applications, digital infrastructure and personalised mobility services. A key priority for ERTICO’s focus in the Urban Mobility area is to support the widespread deployment of a new generation of cooperative, connected and personalised mobility services. Next week, during the ITS World Congress in Hamburg, ERTICO hosts a number of different sessions within the focus area. 

ERTICO’s goal for 2030 is to achieve full integration of all these mobility solutions. This will reduce traffic congestion and increase the use of low-carbon and low-emission solutions, leading to high-quality travel for all citizens and businesses. ERTICO supports its 2030 roadmap related to Urban Mobility through projects and Innovation Platforms allowing the possibility to develop innovative solutions.
