This volume discusses the impact of technology on urban mobility and its regulation within the EU. In turn, this chapter explores the interaction of the developing smart urban mobility agenda with EU environmental law and policy. At the moment, EU action on urban mobility mostly takes the form of policy, not law. Conversely, there is a rich body of EU environmental law, much of which sets goals and obligations that directly affect urban mobility. This chapter provides an overview of the most important existing initiatives regarding urban mobility. It then considers how technology may affect these initiatives, both positively and negatively. It identifies areas of overlap with EU environmental law and offers suggestions for the future alignment and integration of environmental and mobility goals.
