Baltic Environmental Forum-Latvia has started to implement INTERREG sustainable urban mobility and commuting project uzlabošanai


Suburban-city commuter mobility in BSR cities is dominated by an individual car-based mobility. This is often due to weak and highly subsidized public transport with usage barriers like different providers, poorly synchronized timetables, a lack of integration of other modes (combination of bike and bus/train) or comprehensive fare schemes.
Alternatives to one’s own car do not attract enough commuters yet.  Project “Sustainable urban mobility and commuting in Baltic cities (SUMBA)“ will demonstrate how to effectively change suburb-city commuting towards more sustainable and inter-modal patterns in 10 pilot regions around the Baltic Sea: Hamburg (DE), Tartu (EE), Harju County and Tallinn (EE), Riga (LV), Växjö (SE), Olsztyn (PL), Siauliai (LT), Warsaw Region with Piaseczno, Legionowo, Mińsk Mazowiecki and Otwock (PL), Gdynia (PL) and Helsinki (FI).
