POLIS is the leading network of European cities and regions working together to develop innovative technologies and policies for local transport.

Since 1989, European local and regional authorities have been working together within POLIS to promote sustainable mobility through the deployment of innovative transport solutions.

Their aim is to improve local transport through integrated strategies that address the economic, social and environmental dimensions of transport. To this end, they support the exchange of experiences and the transfer of knowledge between European local and regional authorities. They also facilitate the dialogue between local and regional authorities and other mobility stakeholders such as industry, research centres and universities, and NGOs.

POLIS fosters cooperation and partnerships across Europe with the aim of making research and innovation in transport accessible to cities and regions. That is why they actively support the participation of our members in European projects. Their expertise allows us to create a framework which facilitates dialogue and exchange between local authorities, the transport research community and the industry.

At POLIS they strive to provide decision makers with the necessary information and tools for making sustainable mobility a reality. Political representatives from POLIS members convene regularly within the POLIS Political Group, and engage in a dialogue with the European institutions.
