Global Strategy for a Sustainable Mobility (MODU)

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2012
The Global Strategy for a Sustainable Mobility (MODU) was published in 2012 to present an integrated approach over the question of sustainability in transport. MODU's goals are to enhance mobility, particularly public transport, while reducing budgetary costs.

MODU relies in particular on the rail network for public transport, as they provide a fast, efficient, comfortable and sustainable service. Buses shall represent a second, denser layer, to link passengers with rail as much as possible. Regions without rail shall obtain fast and efficient bus lines. Concerning the city of Luxembourg, MODU aims at lowering road traffic as much as possible, given current saturation of the system, and redirect commuters towards bus, train and tramway systems. Such a strategy requires the creation of intermodal hubs.

MODU is designed in accordance with urbanisation trends such as to fulfil the objectives of several transversal plans, such as the Action Plan for Climate Change and the National Plan for enhanced life quality.
