CONNECTBALTICA Convention 2015

Tallinn, 11.11.2015

 

This year CONNECTBALTICA – ITS ESTONIA Convention 2015 will focus on mobility. Mobility stakes are increasingly important in today’s fast-growing urban centers all over the world. Our biggest city Tallinn is no exception in this regard. Hundreds of private cars (as well as public transport) share the city space with pedestrians and users of bicycle traffic.

All this car traffic produces a large extent of pollution. We may instinctively hop into our car, even though cycling or public transport could be a more efficient choice. This year’s theme of multimodality encourages people to think about the range of transport options available, and to choose the right mode when travelling.

One of the aspects is also congestion charge successfully used in several European capitals as well as ITS-bringing solutions for reducing CO2 emission.
