The structure presented here and the underlying objectives follow the resolution of the Smart City Wien Framework Strategy 2019-2050.

Along with the population growth in the city and wider region, the volume of traffic has substantially increased in recent years. The range of mobility options is growing. On the other hand, however, motorised traffic places a major burden on the environment. It is therefore essential to rethink mobility and transport, reducing motorised traffic wherever possible, shifting journeys to efficient modes of transport, and making the transition from fossil fuels to carbon-free propulsion systems for all vehicles. Shifting the modal split away from private motor vehicles also frees up more space for walking, cycling and public transport and enables fairer sharing of the public space.

Objectives in the area Mobility and Transport:

  • Per capita CO2 emissions in the transport sector fall by 50% by 2030, and by 100% by 2050.
  • Per capita final energy consumption in the transport sector falls by 40% by 2030, and by 70% by 2050.
  • The share of journeys in Vienna made by eco-friendly modes of transport, including shared mobility options, rises to 85% by 2030, and to well over 85% by 2050.
  • By 2030, private motor vehicle ownership falls to 250 vehicles per 1,000 inhabitants.
  • At least 70% of all journeys in Vienna continue to be short distances of up to 5km, and the majority are made by bike or on foot.
  • The volume of traffic crossing the municipal boundaries falls by 10% by 2030.
  • Commercial traffic within the municipal boundaries is largely CO2 free by 2030.
