Methodology for the Development of Sustainable Mobility Plans

The concept of sustainable mobility was developed in response to the social, economic and environmental aspects associated with the intensive use of motor vehicles. The use of private cars occupies more land, more fuel and causes more externalities than any other form of transportation. These externalities include accidents, pollution, noise, visual intrusion, and congetion.


In urban areas, the distribution of space between driveways, parking and pedestrians areas is disproportionate. Ultimately, the shape and characteristics of public space is designed to accommodate transport flows as opposed to the pedestrian. The solution to these problems of urban mobility is to promote and improve other modes of transportation, and to impose containment measures and restrictions on car use.


This project proposes a set of knowledge, methods and techniques to revolutionize the understanding of mobility in various municipalities. It assesses the sustainability of the current model by establishing a technical set of indicators. It also evaluates the indicators which helps us to understand the public space and urban mobility. This project seeks to improve mobility using the concept of the superblock as a catalyst for change at the final stage.
