ACCESS- Eurocities for a new mobility culture
Launched in 1994 in the context of the Fifth Environmental Action Programme "Towards Sustainability", ACCESS is a joint initiative of the European Commission and Eurocities. ACCESS - Eurocities for a New Mobility Culture is a local authority network aiming to promote a new mobility culture throughout Europe, in order to combat congestion, improve air quality, as well as to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and noise
The Annual General Meeting in Strasbourg on 18 May 2001 decided the merge between the former Car Free Cities Network and the Transport Committee of Eurocities. The resulting ACCESS - Eurocities for a New Mobility Culture is now the common initiative dealing with transport related issues within Eurocities.
