Izmir has been investing in a more sustainable mobility for the past years.
AER recognises the region’s dedication and rewards it with a ShineBright award! Upgrading public transport in order to make them more eco-friendly is not an easy task, but Izmir is keeping up with the challenge.
The region of Izmir has developed an ambitious connectivity strategy. The region is implementing a wide range of successful actions in order to improve the sustainability of mobility.
Others have recognised Izmir’s successful transition to a sustainable mobility. The communication agency, Revolve, dedicated a whole article about the region’s achievements on the sustainable development field.
Izmir is carrying out a wide-range of actions to improve the sustainability of mobility. There are almost 6 million journeys taken in one day in İzmir and two thirds of these are taken in the centre are by vehicle (motor vehicles such as private vehicle, bus, minibus, services, motorcycle).
Izmir has set up an impressive range of public transportation including rail (serving 192 kilometres), sea transportation (ferry boats), rubber-tired vehicle transportation, electric buses, bicycles, and the very useful “busses carrying bicycles” allowing passengers to better switch from one public transport to another. These numerous vehicles are optimised by projects and studies that guarantee their proper implementation and usage.
Izmir is setting high standards for sustainable mobility!
