Welcome to the Eltis Mobility Update!


Following a brief break we’re pleased to welcome you back to the monthly Eltis Mobility Update, packed once again full of urban mobility news, important events and thoughtful case studies.

This month focuses on recent changes we’ve made to the website, specifically regarding the Mobility Plans section where we now have more valuable resources related to Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). We’re also introducing some new features to the Eltis Mobility Update. You can read more about these in our feature article.

Our case studies this month come from the Czech Republic, where Brno has integrated LNG buses into its fleet, and Budapest, where the city’s transport operator has helped it draft a new urban mobility plan focused on sustainability.

Happy reading!
