Donostia-San Sebastian was honoured with the prestigious CIVITAS City of the Year Award 2012 for a comprehensive approach that covers everything from cycling to public transport to personalised travel planning, all decided on with the help of an advisory council representing 29 stakeholder groups.
The judges acknowledged the city's approach to selling "controversial measures" and for achieving results despite major budgetary cuts. They praised the city for raising public awareness and for "presenting urban mobility initiatives as part of an effort to improve urban life". The winner's achievements included an 11percent increase in cyclists per year over the last three years, and one of the highest rates of public transport use in Europe.
