Abstract

The rate of urbanization in the world is constantly increasing. At present in the European Union nearly 70% of inhabitants that live in cities play an increasingly important economic role and are essential for the proper functioning of the economy. With the development and sprawling of urban areas, the way of managing cities are changing. Rising transportation problems have triggered the idea of smart mobility. A new approach to urban mobility means creating co-modality between public and private means of transport and optimizing the use of various modes of transport, often using modern ICT. The aim of this article is to present initiatives and projects undertaken in Gdynia on sustainable and smart mobility, and to explore citizens' awareness and opinions on these activities. An anonymous questionnaire was used to carry out the pilot survey. The questions verified the knowledge of respondents about the pro-ecological behavior and the concept of a smart city (and its areas). The accepted research hypothesis points to an insufficient change in the communication behavior of the inhabitants in the face of the projects carried out in Gdynia over the past few years. Thus the lack of adequate awareness of the inhabitants in the process of shaping intelligent mobility.

Keywords: Smart mobility, sustainable mobility, pilot survey
