Contemporary city is more and more characterized by mobility and the intersection of flows of people, goods and information; such flows redefine social relations and social ties. At the same time, inequality of mobility is both cause and effect of uneven availability of material resources, uneven opportunities in time management and uneven access to urban functions. The increase in mobility, and in particular the increase of private transport, implies the need for a social and environmental control of this trend. So, the elaboration of new forms of self-organization and selfregulation becomes fundamental in order to deal with environmental impact and the increasing flows of people and goods. The author considers sustainable mobility through the cases of some European cities (London, Paris, Barcelona and Munster); then, she focuses on Rome.

Keywords: Urban mobility, transport system, inequality of mobility, urban accessibility, sustainability, urban governance
