What does sustainable transport mean to you?

Transport touches every part of our daily lives, every minute of every day.



What is World Sustainable Transport Day?

World Sustainable Transport Day, celebrated on 26 November, is a special opportunity to recognise, reflect and act on making transport safer, more efficient, sustainable and greener.


How did it come about?

The UN General Assembly adopted the resolution to designate a UN World Sustainable Transport Day at its 77th session in May 2023. The resolution followed IRU’s initial proposal to have a dedicated World Transport Day.


What is sustainable transport?

Sustainable transport connects people and economies in harmony with the environment, improving social equity and reinforcing resilience. Buses, coaches, taxis and trucks are at the heart of sustainable mobility and logistics.
