Develop Athens

Country: Greece

The current transport policies and strategies in Athens are formulated and delivered through the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks, the Ministry of Environment Energy and Climate Change and the Greek National Strategic Reference Framework. The Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks in 2008 established a commission for Green Transport in order to study, promote and implement actions to save energy in transport and environmental protection whose main actions in the transport sector are the renewal of the fleet of cars for phasing out old, polluting vehicles, the construction of two bicycle lanes and the promotion of environmentally friendly vehicles for public transport like natural gas buses, electric buses and the use of hydrogen and hybrid busses. The Ministry of Environment Energy and Climate Change has set a basic goal of promoting green growth.
