Barcelona also has a wide range of shared electric vehicle services (scooters and cars) for travelling across the city when it is not possible to make use of public transport, going on foot or by bicycle.
Electric Vehicle Master Plan
Barcelona City Council is promoting a strategic plan to introduce electric vehicles in the city, encouraging sustainable mobility and improving air quality by reducing fossil-fuel emissions and encouraging locally sourced consumption. This will benefit urban community life.
Measures undertaken include the LIVE Platform, which is open to all public and private entities with links to sustainable mobility, basically electric and CNG (compressed natural gas) vehicles, for the purposes of implementing projects, strategic policies and new business models, and creating a knowledge network.
