Lisbon is Portugal’s hilly, coastal capital city. A Lisbon mobility project won an international award at the 2015 World Congress of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP). The ‘Let Us Move You’ project – organised by Lisbon’s transport operator, Trasportes de Lisboa, and metro company, Metropolitano de Lisboa – aims to increase the number of young adults using the metro for everyday journeys. The project, which received financing from the EU-co-funded CIVITAS Initiative, also addresses the barriers that young people face when using public transport and which influence their travel behaviour, and includes them in the decision-making process for improving sustainable mobility in the Portuguese capital.
