Reinhart Rack own initiative report on Green Paper...
...towards a new culture for urban mobility (see Emta news 32).
The report, adopted by Parliament at a large majority 8-10 July in Strasbourg with few amendments, conveys the main message that new and innovative concepts on mobility in cities are urgently needed to tackle the adverse effects
of urban transport on climate change. Members of Parliament (MEP) bearing in mind the subsidiarity principle, stated that action at EU level should only be taken when it provides clear added value.
With regards to financing, MEP call for a share responsibility between the various level of government and stress the contribution EU could make through structural and cohesion funds.
