DEVELOPING ACTIVE MODES OF TRANSPORT

Travel is an important part of daily life in cities and plays a big role in quality of life. Spatial planning is a key factor in encouraging any mode of transport. In La Confluence, priority is given to sustainable and active transport that pollutes as little as possible.

THE DECISION TO USE SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT

Increasing the number of cycle paths and ensuring their safety, linking the district through numerous public spaces and footpaths, reducing the distance between tram or bus stations: these are all examples of projects carried out by Lyon Confluence in line with the metropolitan strategy to make urban life easier and protect the health of its users.

La Confluence is the first quarter to receive a driverless electric shuttle, called Navly. The aim was to provide transport to the Docks to facilitate the life of employees in the companies located along Quai Rambaud. This zone was chosen for full-scale testing of an innovative mode of transport that could well transform urban travel in the long run.

OPTIMISING PARKING

In La Confluence, the aim is to reduce the use of cars and increase other forms of mobility. The creation of the first  shared car park, at Marché Gare, will help limit the use of cars in the quarter, both in terms of the space taken up by parking and the amount of local traffic.
