Valencia celebrates European Mobility Week from September 18 to September 25 with a variety of activities, including free access to its transportation network on Wednesday.
This month, Valencia will celebrate the European Mobility Week, a one-of-a-kind campaign aimed at increasing awareness among residents about the detrimental implications of excessive car use in the community. The city will strive to highlight the benefits of adopting more sustainable means of travel, such as public transportation, cycling, and walking, through a variety of programmes.
As a result, several activities will be conducted in various parts of Valencia to encourage the most environmentally friendly modes of transportation and to raise public awareness of the pollution problem.
EMT will set up a children’s play area with a puppet theatre and an inflatable bus as part of the celebration on Plaza de la Empresa Municipal de Transportes, where the Mobility Fair will be hosted.
The “Car Free Day” on September 22nd will be the highlight of the European Mobility Week event. Valencia will once again give free rides on its transit network to highlight the importance of public transportation for a sustainable lifestyle. Users will be able to ride the buses (MetroBus or EMT), Tram, and MetroValencia for free on that day.
To simplify access to the subway stations, the gates will be open and the validators will be turned off, while the automatic vending machines will be operational and will display a sign indicating that the service is free.
