French urban transport policy aims at coordinating the initiatives of the different players concerned with transport, roads, parking and urban planning in concertation with the economic players, the associations concerned and the general public. The objective is to reconcile apparently contradictory requirements: ensuring mobility and access to one or another area whilst protecting the environment; satisfying personal needs but not at the expense of the community or of both present and future generations. In this light, the urban transport policy falls well within a meaningful approach of sustainable mobility.
