ELTIS: Walking and Cycling to Improve Health Levels

ELTIS: Walking and Cycling to Improve Health Levels
May 2007 | Print | Factsheet

ELTIS, the European Local Transport Information Service, is a web portal providing news and information on sustainable mobility. The case studies section of the ELTIS website contains hundreds of examples of urban and regional transport, allowing transport practitioners to learn from others and thereby accelerate the uptake of proven innovations. Five of the case studies were prepared by the REC for distribution in printed form in eight languages.

This factsheet describes an Austrian mobility, health and land-use programme to make physical activity part of everyday life. The main goal was to reduce the number of short car trips and to improve fitness levels by encouraging people to walk and cycle instead.
