Following walking, cycling, goods transport and public transport, Good Move takes a look at car-sharing in Brussels. Self-service cars, sharing between individuals, vehicles at stations or available on a free-floating basis… car-sharing services are flourishing in almost all major cities. However, it can be difficult to get to grips with the different systems on offer. And in any case, do they all potentially have the same impact on regional mobility? Discover the fifth question in the Good Move diagnosis, on the new car-sharing services.
On the basis of the results of an audit carried out in partnership with the Region, the Municipality of Etterbeek has decided to implement an ambitious action plan in support of cyclists! Fast, economical, healthy and sustainable, the bike has become one of the most popular means of transport for the people of Etterbeek. The plan therefore aims to improve their safety and comfort, but also to encourage cycling. It includes a cycling street where cyclists have priority, the use of signs to mark routes, adaptations to crossroad layouts, an increase in parking provision including a secure cycle park near Place Jourdan, and awareness-raising campaigns. Go Etterbike: it’s very Good Move!
