Green Urban Transport Systems (INTERREG IVB Central Europe Programme)

The main environmental problems in cities are linked to increasing air pollution (currently 31% of all emissions) coming from transport (of which up to 7 % come from public transport). The challenge GUTS partners are facing is how to reconcile economic development and accessibility of their cities while at the same time improving the quality of life and environmental protection while fighting Climate Change.

GUTS will contribute to sustainable urban mobility in Central Europe, helping cities and urban agglomerations (public authorities, transport operators) to meet requirements for a greener environment. The project will work together on creating a strong institutional, financial & technological basis for the development of sustainable and clean public transport (PT) systems.

An environmentally sustainable rolling stock, just like user-friendliness or improved accessibility, is crucial to create higher quality Public transport services. GUTS promotes and enhances the quality and sustainability of public transport by preparing the ground for the necessary innovative investments to answer the qualitative and quantitative mobility requirements of urban citizens.
