The European Commission has officially launched the enhanced Eltis website, Europe’s main observatory on urban mobility. The new Eltis has been re-designed and developed to make searching for and gathering valuable urban mobility tools and resources easier than before. The editorial content is being transformed; new case studies are being produced to a high standard, expertly written and focused on actions, results and what lessons can be learned for other cities. Plans for an overhaul and update of existing case studies are also underway. Eltis has also integrated the content from the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans website (formerly MobilityPlans.eu), including it in a new Mobility Plans section. This new section provides in-depth information on how to develop and implement mobility plans, with relevant guidelines, resources and a database of cities that are already involved.
