Porto Camara Municipal, Porto

Country: Portugal

Porto is located in a setting of rare natural beauty on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Portugal’s second largest city stretches across 41.66 km² and is home to 263,000 inhabitants. Porto has joined CIVITAS ELAN to foster the necessary changes towards an urban transport system that guarantees all citizens high-quality mobility and limits its environmental impact. The city is adopting mobility management techniques to minimise the effects of increased road traffic and is making efforts to change people’s travel habits. To this end, Porto opened a “mobility shop” that provides information, gathers travellers’ feedback and monitors mobility issues in the centre.
