Citymobil is a major research, development and demonstration project. It addresses the integration of automated transport systems in the urban environment, based on real-life implementations of automated transport systems in 3 sites: Semi-automated buses in Castellon (Spain), PRT (Personal Rapid Transit) in Heathrow (UK) and cybercars in Rome (Italy).


Citymobil will achieve a more effective organisation of urban transport. This will result in a more rational use of motorised traffic resulting in:

  • less congestion and pollution;
  • safer driving;
  • higher quality of living;
  • enhanced integration with spatial development.


The project is funded through the European Commission's 6th Framework Program.
