The European Mobility Week is the world's most widely organized movement. It aims to show how important sustainable mobility is for present and future generations. The European Mobility Week at Budapest shows what a street in the city looks like when it is full of people instead of cars, how to create a living, breathing culture of the urban community on city squares.


It is for the tenth time we are intending to show the advantages, the benefits and the beauty of sustainable mobility, alternative transportation, smaller eco-footprints and better quality of life between September 16th and 22nd. The European Mobility Week at Budapest focuses on a different topic each year - this time it is Alternative Mobility.
At the overture of the seven-day series - traditionally - we will test the means of public transport and alternative ways of mobility as opposed to cars. For the 16th September an urban traffic competition has been organized where members of three teams (users of public transport, cyclists, and car drivers) compare how fast they can get from A to B while stopping at specified points and performing everyday issues.
The next day, at the beginning of the weekend, we open the city's longest and most beautiful avenue for pedestrians and bikers. It is the Andrássy road, where there are usually more cars than people. On the Car-free Weekend of Budapest we give Andrássy ‘Corso’ to presenters of alternative mobility, to the idea of environmentalism and to civilians. The Car-free Weekends are traditionally visited by hundreds of thousands to watch the attractions of the Andrássy Corso, as TeARTrum, the country's largest theatrical event and also Hungary’s largest tourism event debuting in the Főszezon exhibition. In this year, connecting three events (Bridge of Sciences on the Danube, National Galopp at Heroe’s square) the city offers a huge promenade across Pest for pedestrians and bikers from Buda side to City park.
Parking and Garage Day will take place on Monday to encourage the usage of underground garages and public transport instead of occupation of public roads. And if you got out of your car anyway, leave it at home on Tuesday too, the day of the Pedestrianised Streets, to walk along the recently completed mall in Lövőház street filled with many cultural programs.
The European Mobility Week’s closing event is the European Car-free Day on September 22nd. This year it is Alkotmány street that we make car-free to present pedestrians and cyclists the brand new public bike network stations called BuBi, coming soon. In the evening thousands of cyclists will show how big the critical mass really is. The Critical Mass procession will start at six in the evening. For more detailed programs see
The inhabitants of the city of Budapest may enjoy several permanent measures for sustainable mobility in this year, as a the green reconstruction of downtown city center Deák square with tram line in green grass and cycling paths; the reconstruction Margit-Bridge  cycling paths on it; the starting construction of ten brand new 14,5 km long cycling paths in the suburbs; allowance for cyclists to bike on-coming in one-way streets and to use bus-lanes; and an Internet-based route and travelling-planner for more comfort of public transport passangers.
