According to TomTom Traffic Index
, in 2019, the top-10 most congested cities had an average 61,6% congestion level. That is a lot of time spent in traffic.

A Eurostat study shows
that In the European Union, in 2018, public transportation represented only 19% of inland passenger transport.
Public transportation and soft mobility are two solutions for increasingly crowded roads and a greener future. How can we make these systems more efficient and attractive? Could soft mobility get better results?
