Sustainable mobility
Improved transport

Services for municipalities

To increase walking and cycling is an international and a national goal. The World Health Organization (WHO) has named immobility as one of the greatest health threats in the Western countries. In the Western countries, only about one third of the working-age population have enough exercise to keep them healthy.

Municipalities have an important role in promoting sustainable mobility and in creating improved transport. The promotion programmes for walking and cycling help municipalities to increase the proportion of these travel modes and to achieve the benefits resulting from this change. We have made promotion programmes for walking and cycling and taken part in their implementation e.g. in the municipalities of Kangasala, Kokkola, Seinäjoki and Sipoo.
