  • Company actions in the field of labour mobility

  • Survey of daily mobility in Terres de l'Ebre

    The Taula de Mobilitat de les Terres de l'Ebre, formed by the Department of Territory and Sustainability and the local administrations, for the drafting of the Pla Director de Mobilitat de les Terres de l’Ebre has carried out a mobility survey to the citizens of Terres de l'Ebre to be able to make a precise diagnosis of mobility habits in this territory and to be able to define actions within the framework of the Pla Director de Mobilitat.

    The computer-assisted telephone survey was carried out from November 2019 to January 2020, to analyze the daily mobility of residents in Terres de l’Ebre for more than 4 years. A total of 9,541 interviews have been carried out in the 52 municipalities of the area, so that a representative sample of mobility is available in all citizens and also at the municipality level, which will allow detecting the existing deficiencies to specify the policies to promote sustainable mobility in Terres de l'Ebre.

The General State Government (AGE) also participates in the financing through a nominative annual contribution (since 2014 as part of the Law for the General State Budget).

    On the other hand the ATM obtains the income corresponding to the sale of integrate transport travel cards.

    Main financing data for Barcelona ATM.

  • Guide for the integration of the gender perspective into Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP)

    The objective of this guide is to provide a working tool for integrating the gender perspective as a cross-cutting axis in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) and to be useful in the incorporation into other mobility planning figures (EAMG, PDE).

    This guide has been conceived as complementary material that will allow the integration of the gender perspective in the different phases of SUMP work. The technical specifications for the drafting of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans by the Barcelona Provincial Council (DIBA) have served as a reference, but the guide is intended to be used throughout Catalonia and adapted to the rest of the country or other territories.

    In addition to being a guide that should accompany the development of SUMP, it is important that its application is accompanied by an interdisciplinary process within each municipality, involving coordination with other plans and departments that have a direct relationship with mobility from a gender perspective, such as areas of Feminism, Gender Equity Policies, and Equality, linking it with Municipal Gender Equity Plans.

    Finally, this guide is part of previous work developed by ATM to integrate the gender perspective in mobility. It is based on the gender perspective analysis of EMEF, reflecting differentiated mobility between women and men; the PDM 2020-2025 and PDI 2021-2030, which for the first time incorporate the gender perspective as an objective, and the Plan of Measures against sexual harassment in public transport 2022, which urges addressing sexist and sexual violence in mobility.

  • Guide for the development of sustainable urban logistics plans

    During the last decades, logistics, and especially the urban distribution of goods, has been one of the most dynamic and complex economic sectors. In addition, significant changes are taking place in terms of the volume and type of goods, flows and habits of consumption and mobility.
    These changes have been accelerated in recent years with the exponential growth experienced by e-commerce and home delivery, the so-called last mile distribution. But, among other negative externalities, this mobility associated with goods causes strong impacts in terms of congestion and atmospheric and noise pollution (currently, goods traffic can represent up to 25% of all urban trips and generate between 25% and 50% of pollutant emissions in our cities). To reduce these impacts, local planning must incorporate diagnosis methodologies and proposals that help improve the organization and management of urban logistics and make it more sustainable. In this context, this publication provides local bodies with a methodological guide for the development of sustainable urban logistics plans.
    This guide is complemented by several sections that frame the state of the issue of urban logistics; they determine the legal and regulatory framework; they make an exhibition of the different transport and mobility sectoral plans and programmes, and describe the specific cases of the sector.
