This course introduces the fundamentals of urban mobility planning. Mobility choices affect all aspects of city life: from economic efficiency to social inclusion, sustainability, and quality of life. These choices shape and reshape cities in irreversible ways. Urban life is much better for everyone when we invest in mobility for all, not just car users. In this course, you will:
  • Increase your awareness of common urban mobility problems;
  • Start understanding how key transport modes can be improved for people in urban areas;
  • Learn about the roles of political bodies in making change happen;
  • Start understanding how things could be different in your urban area and how to make it happen.
Multi-language videos:  

To make this course accessible for a greater audience, the videos’ subtitles are available in English, French, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Slovak and Turkish.

Lays a strong foundation

This course provides a strong foundation for urban mobility planning. Would have been better if some of the key points are provided as pdf downloads as in some other courses.

A relevant course.

The course made me see that things are not as obvious as you may think. Are we asking the right questions about mobility? It was interesting and relevant.

FUNDAMENTOS DE MOVILIDAD URBANA

Está súper bien, faltaría documentarlo con un poco de más desarrollo para la aplicación de metodologías en el tema de diseño de urbanismo como el cálculo de densidad vehicular.
