Transport is a vital part of our everyday life. In the 21st century people have woken up to the fact that there is a need for us to care for the world around us. There are different ways used by the cities to encourage their citizens to choose more sustainable ways to get from point A to point B.

The best smart urban solution is different for each city and often is even a combination between some ideas but there is always a way. A good example is the city strategy of Bologna and the anti-pollution scheme implemented recently.  More than 100 local businesses have signed up to in the sustainable appeal and are giving away discounts vouchers. Walking and cycling involves zero emission of any greenhouse gas, it’s free and an additional plus is it’s a good form of exercise for the body. Using the public transport is also an excellent example of sustainable transport. Electric vehicles powered entirely by electricity do not emit any dangerous gasses as well.
