Association information

Polis is a network of European cities and regions cooperating for innovative transport solutions. Rotterdam holds the Polis presidency in 2016.

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

Our aim is to improve local transport through integrated strategies that address the economic, social and environmental dimensions of transport. To this end, Polis supports the exchange of experiences and the transfer of knowledge between European local and regional authorities. It also facilitates the dialogue between local and regional authorities and other actors of the sector 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. The network and its secretariat actively support the participation of Polis members in European projects. Polis participation in European projects allows us to create a framework which facilitates dialogue and exchange between local authorities and the transport research community.

In Polis, decision makers are provided with the necessary information and tools for making sustainable mobility a reality. Within the Political Group of Polis, they formulate recommendations to the European institutions.

Four thematic pillars

The activities of Polis are organised around four thematic pillars:

  • Environment and Health in Transport
  • Mobility and Traffic Efficiency
  • Transport Safety and Security
  • Social and Economic Aspects of Transport

Polis members meet regularly in working groups organised in the framework of these pillars.

The network is chaired by Rotterdam in 2016 and has a permanent secretariat located in Brussels.
