  • to implement city and citizen-friendly, electric mobility solutions, using new electric and hybrid vehicles (pedelecs, buses, vans and cars) in innovative service concepts,
  • to engage in a dynamic citizen dialogue for mobility planning and service improvement.

  • to promote and implement sustainable, clean and (energy) efficient urban transport measures,
