Funchal distinguished by “Civitas Awards”

The city of Funchal was the winner of the “Civitas Awards”, which distinguish European cities that stand out in promoting sustainable mobility.

The award “City of the Year 2013” was presented during the Civitas Forum held in the city of Brest (France). This distinction therefore confirms the positive impact of the actions undertaken by the Municipality of Funchal toward promoting public transport and the implementing measures and projects in terms of sustainable mobility, amongst which a pilot project with new added value in respect of information and guidance services through location/geo-referencing (GPS), and an interactive guide to the routes in Funchal. Another highlight is the introduction of the Green Line, which contributed toward the reduction in car traffic jams and therefore the reduction of environmental pollution, improving the quality of life for citizens and visitors.
