The European Commission adopted the Green Paper "Towards a new culture for urban mobility” on 25 September 2007. With the Green Paper, the Commission set a new European agenda for urban mobility, while respecting the responsibilities of local, regional and national authorities in this field. The Commission intended to facilitate the search for solutions by, for example, sharing best practice.

The consultation period, during which stakeholders could send their comments to the Green Paper, ended on 15 March 2008. The debate aimed at identifying, in partnership with all interested parties, the obstacles which hinder successful urban mobility and how to remove them. The Green Paper addressed, for example, how the quality of collective transport can be improved, how the use of clean and energy efficient technologies can be increased, how walking and cycling can be promoted and how the rights of passengers on public transport can be protected.
