In HUPMOBILE project City of Turku is working on the reorganisation of passenger rail transport in the port area. The surroundings of Turku Castle and the harbour are set to undergo a major redevelopment in the coming decades.

Partners discussing new methodology

In the HUPMOBILE project, a methodology aimed to be used to document sustainable transportation solutions is being developed. The focus is on new policies, technical solutions, or new services improving some aspects of sustainability in the transportation of goods or people. Feedback from the Follower Cities and other Baltic Sea Region is welcome!

Reducing traffic’s greenhouse gas emissions is in a significant part of Finnish climate policy at the moment. All means are needed to reduce traffic emissions. One of the tools is commuting to work with sustainable modes of travel: by walking, biking, public transport, ridesharing, various mobility services, or combining sustainable modes of transport to car trip.

The first HUPMOBILE webinar was held on 18 December 2019 as a part of the activities of WP6 at the General Assembly that took place in the premises of KTH in Södertälje, Sweden. The whole webinar was recorded and is available for everyone to rewatch!
