Flanders: Mobility Agreements

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Since 1996, Flemish communities have been able to sign an agreement with the regional public transport company, the Flemish Government and other stakeholders such as schools, in order to develop an integrated multimodal mobility plan. This has to cover a broad range of mobility and road-safety measures, such as promoting and giving priority to public transport, limiting (or freezing) the number of car parking places, and the construction of bicycle-tracks.
So far, more than 80% of the municipalities in Flanders have signed the agreement, and consequently received subsidies. This agreement ends on the 31st of December 2013. The Flemish Government also granted EUR3,7 million in subsidies to 113 local communities who participated in the programme "Going to school in a sustainable way" (www.duurzaamnaarschool.be).
