SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY WORKING GROUP
The eCitySevilla project is committed to sustainable mobility on the basis that in the future mobility will be electric, connected and shared. The initial target would be to renew some 2,000 vehicles and replace them with electric vehicles by 2025, with a priority access plan for clean vehicles. This implies up to 20% of the total electric vehicle quota in 2025 and 37% in 2030. In addition, the plan is to install one charging point for every 10 electric vehicles, leading to a figure of at least 200 charging points on the island.
The Mobility Working Group, led by the Seville City Council through the local Energy Agency belonging to the Ecological Transition Delegation, is working to have the PCT Cartuja declared a low-emission zone (ZBE) so that the goals that we as a city have committed to, are brought forward in this area to 25 years before 2050.
To do this, we are working on:
- semi-pedestrianisation of a significant number of interior link roads to turn them into pedestrian zones and green transit zones
- rearranging and specialising existing parking spaces inside and around the premises, using an environmental badge that would allow access by camera identification and which will be managed through a Smart Parking solution
- integrating how the city park of the Charco de la Pava is used into our planning. The plan is to install an area of solar pergolas to supply energy to the island and to the network of electric charging
- encouraging bicycle use by installing 1,000+ safe parking points that are compatible with electric scooters
- electrifying the public transport network
- developing self-driving vehicles
- installing own network of private electric vehicle charging points.
