Public transport and alternative modes at the core of the first CREATE mentoring visit in Bucharest.

The Copenhagen-Bucharest pair was the first one to kick-off its first mentoring visit on 2nd and 3rd November 2016. Two experts from the city of Copenhagen travelled to Bucharest for two days to meet relevant experts in charge of transport, roads and traffic planning, SUMP implementation, infrastructures and public services. Two topics were in particular at the core of the discussion: the improvement of public transport and bikes as alternative way of transport.
CREATE aims at promoting a range of different peer learning activities. Work shadowing visits were organised, for instance, in the first year of the project in the Stage 3 cities (Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Paris and Vienna) to offer Stage 1 cities (Adana, Amman, Bucharest, Skopje and Tallinn) a greater insight into a particular work area and improve their way of working.
The mentoring visits will be now organised in two rounds this and next year to follow on the work shadowing visit and to provide transport experts in Stage 1 cities with tailored advice on specific challenges identified in the first phase.

The mentors also got the opportunity to visit the traffic and control management centre in Bucharest and the public transport operator offices to gain a more in-depth knowledge of the transport system in the city.
Bucharest and Copenhagen will now build a detailed action plan to identify few key steps that will help Bucharest moving towards a Stage 3 city in the next years and will keep in touch until the second mentoring visit next year when they will access together the progress made in the meantime.
