Lisbon is the capital and largest city in Portugal.
With a population of almost 3 million inhabitants, the metropolitan area of Lisbon accounts for 27% of the national population and 40% of all commutes. This results in high level of pressure on the city’s road network and public transportation system. Lisbon has put forward a bold vision to adapt the supply of mobility services to the housing and urban developments that the city is undergoing, improving the public transport network and increasing the conditions for pedestrian and cyclists.
40% of all commutes in Portugal take place in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area.
Lisbon aims to be carbon-free by 2050.
Lisbon’s “Public Space Design Manual” establishes guidelines to intervene in public spaces.
