The European Commission revealed last July the names of the fourteen cities which will benefit from a grant of € 50 m under the CIVITAS Initiative to help them implement innovative and integrated actions for radical improvements of their urban transport.

The following projects were highlighted by the Commission : company mobility plans and travel awareness campaigns (Bristol, Rome, Nantes), integration between public transport and car-sharing and multi-modal passenger information and booking (Bremen), large-scale introduction of clean buses (Rotterdam, Graz, Nantes, Berlin, Barcelona, Lille).
