Transforming Transportation

Gothenburg shows the way to sustainable mobility during international visit.

For two days, October 1 and 2, Gothenburg will showcase the latest developments in e-mobility and sustainable transport, with Gothenburg being one of Europe's leading regions. The delegates are invited by the Swedish Institute, Smart City Sweden and Business Sweden and the two days in Gothenburg are part of a longer visit to Sweden

The Gothenburg region is one of the leading regions in Europe in e-mobility and the international interest in development is great.

The delegates, who come from Canada, the Philippines, Egypt, India, Mexico, South Africa and India, will attend meetings with companies and experts on smart mobility and study visits. It will also be possible to test drive electric cargo bikes and small electric vehicles in central Gothenburg.

- Mobility is the key to a sustainable and inclusive city. Cities around the world need to develop their transport solutions to increase mobility and reduce emissions. Swedish cities, and Gothenburg in particular, have many good examples and innovative solutions, which we would like to share with other cities around the world, says Sofia Mc Conell, operations manager for Green Gothenburg.

The group will also visit the test bed ElectriCity by taking Bus 55 from the city to Lindholmen and then be able to take part in Volvo Bus's strategy on electromobility. You will also find out how the city's charging infrastructure is being developed and planned. In addition, several of the city's administrations and seminars participate to give their views on the development.
