Doppelmayr Side Event at the World Climate Summit & La Galerie

The need for Sustainable Urban Mobility           
Cities are engines of socio-economic development. Yet, in many developing and emerging economies, urban dwellers are facing increasing transport challenges. Widespread congestion and traffic gridlock have now become the norm in many cities, impacting urban life through negative externalities such as pollution, noise stress, and accidents. There is a need to take away pressure from the streets and start using the third spatial dimension as a new and independent transport level.               
As a leader in the cable car industry, Doppelmayr is excited to share their knowledge, experience, and ideas. The event is designed to inspire, inform, and educate about the capabilities and possibilities of cable transit in the urban environment. Examples of existing systems will be reviewed as a way to illustrate the numerous possibilities for alignments, stations, lengths, and applications. The Academy of Sustainable Urban Mobility 2017 will be reviewed and the upcoming Academy 2018, taking place in Vienna, will be promoted. Decision-makers will receive information about how to develop an alternative paradigm for urban mobility that seeks to improve accessibility by introducing more efficient, inclusive, safe, affordable and clean public transport. Also, they will be introduced to innovative mobility such as BRT, Aerial Cable Cars, NMT, Electric Mobility in conjunction with compact city planning.

All interested parties are warmly invited to attend the event!
