Abstract:This research report aims to provide a selective analysis of the actors in the field of sustainable mobility in Curitiba, and find mutually beneficial interventions to improve the overall performance of Curitiba's urban transport system. Interviews were held to discover the actors’ aims and inhibiting factors and empirical data of several means of transportation were gathered, to get an overview of the current mobility system. It was concluded that the sustainable mobility actors in Curitiba aim to create a culture of sustainable mobility through, improving the public transportation system; integrating means of transportation and mobility regions; promoting bicycling and walking; and improving the safety of commuting. In realising their sustainable mobility goals, the actors are mainly inhibited by a lack of money, the current political and/or social climate; a lack of security on sustainable means of transportation and a poor execution of projects. To d! ecr ease these inhibiting factors and help the actors realise their goals, future mobility plans should aim to increase (1) civil engagement, (2) the convenience, comfort and affordability of the BRT system, and (3) the safety of cyclists through education, collaboration and integration of means of transport.
