The EU’s citizens’ commitment to the search of more sustainable methods of transportation has become evident in the results released by an Eurobarometer survey conducted in 27 EU states. Among other data, the study shows that two out of three drivers would be willing to compromise on car speed to reduce emissions; 53% would agree to change the tax rates on their vehicles for ones based on their real use; and outstandingly a 71% would be willing to change to public transport if there were a single ticket covering all transport modes. The results of this survey can be found on the following website:

This data is consistent with some of the presentations made at the seminar “Ecomobility in rural areas”, held on February 9 in Paris, which was commented in this blog (http://www.decaba.com/en/ecomobilitat/)
