Pedestrian and cycle mobility
A large part of Ostrava’s main city centre has been closed to car traffic, contributing to the high level of pedestrian mobility (28.2%). This figure may increase in the future if low-emission zones are introduced.
The polycentric structure of Ostrava complicates cycle transport, which is lower than in other European cities (3.7%) despite an extensive cycle route network (245 km). Nevertheless, Ostrava plans to triple the use (modal share) of its constantly expanding network of cycle routes by 2025 (further 416 km); measures will include a bikesharing project.
