Copenhagen has a well-developed public transportation system, mixed with private means of transportation such as cars and bicycles. As we pursue a sustainable eco-friendly transport system it becomes clear, that car transportation has too high an environmental impact and takes up too much road space. Copenhagen, being an old city, is very compact and not very fit for car transportation. As we investigate the possibilities for a sustainable eco-friendly transport system, it becomes clear that we need to get the cars out of Copenhagen. This will have to be done in collaboration with the development of a sustainable public transportation system. The new Metro Cityring will provide a solid base for implementing car-free zones within central Copenhagen. This has to be done alongside the expansion of the electric-powered bus system, already existing and operating at a smaller scale in the city center. Furthermore, we will implement congestion fees for cars entering Copenhagen. In order to change the current system, we use the theories of sociotechnical regimes, and transition management. In order to aim our goals at a ‘real’ sustainable solution we use Industrial Ecology, not only to define our sustainable goals, but also to analyze the current system from a sustainable point of view.
