Benalmádena town hall has organised several initiatives to mark European Mobility Week, which will take place between Friday 16 and Thursday 22 September.

The initiatives were announced by councillor for Mobility, Javier Marín; and the manager of the company responsible for the management of the municipal transport service (Innoben), Eva Fortes.

Marín explained that the town hall is committed to the “importance of opting for less polluting means of transport”, and that it will use the week to promote the use of electronic and traditional bicycles, public transport and vehicle sharing.

The week will end with World Car-Free Day, a day that Benalmádena we will celebrate by offering the free use of the 103 urban line to all passengers.

Inoben has also organised a photographic competition for the best representative image of the European Mobility Week. Participants, who must be over 18 years of age, can register on concurso@innoben.es.

Prizes consist of tickets to local attractions, such as Selwo Marina, the cable car and the tourist bus.

Mobility Week is the European Commission’s flagship awareness-raising campaign on sustainable urban mobility. It promotes behavioural change in favour of active mobility, public transport, and other clean, intelligent transport solutions.
