The city of Lahti’s CitiCAP


The city of Lahti’s CitiCAP


The goals of the CitiCAP (citizens’ cap and trade co-created) project are to reduce emissions from transport, collect and make available digital data on mobility, and develop new transport services for citizens. The CitiCAP project will experiment with a personal carbon trading scheme for mobility as part of the Lahti region’s transport policy and build a main cycle route based on smart solutions (Lahti city centre – Apilakatu street).
