The pandemic has revealed weaknesses in Eastern Partner countries’ planning and management of transport systems, especially in cities. Pre-COVID-19 weaknesses, such as a lack of (adequate) bicycle networks or the inadequate service provided by public transport, had a direct impact on cities’ resilience to the challenges created by COVID-19, and highlighted the need to adapt urban transport to global threats.

This paper, developed by the EU-funded Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum, proposes several recommendations to partner countries’ governments, cities and municipalities on how to improve urban mobility.
