EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK takes place every year from 16 to 22 September. The week encourages European municipalities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite people to try out alternatives to car use.

Since its introduction in 2002, the impact of EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK has steadily grown, both across Europe and around the world. In 2016 the campaign broke the participation record; 2427 towns and cities from 51 countries organised activities during the week. Just over half of the participating towns and cities implemented permanent measures, amounting to a total of 7386, primarily focusing on mobility management, accessibility, and new or improved bicycle facilities.
The week culminates in Car-Free Day, where participating towns and cities set aside one or several areas solely for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport for a whole day. In 2016, 953 cities organised a Car-Free Day.
