Environmental cycling routes

Rutas ciclosostenibles

This activity gives schoolchildren the chance to learn to travel by bicycle and to value the advantages offered by a collective transport system compared to private vehicle use in terms of pollution. The goal is for children to take on board basic road traffic regulations, to learn to value their environment and to pick up domestic habits leading to the responsible, sustainable use of natural resources.

Teen Smart City

Work is being done on the Teen Smart City project, a programme targeted at Secondary and High School students based on the use of cutting-edge technologies and innovation that enables teens in the area to take part in the creation of a smart city network in their municipality. As part of the Teen Smart City project, the Town Council of Pozuelo, in conjunction with Eco-Schools in the city and MLO, has arranged “Walk to school” routes, an initiative where schoolchildren can go to school in an ecological, safe, healthy way in order to stimulate not only environmental awareness but also social relations among all of them while they are on their way to school.

Environmental impact management

Fully aware of the importance of transport as a business that makes a considerable impact on the environment, since we started out, here at Metro Ligero Oeste (MLO), we have ensured environmental awareness is inherent in all the levels of our organisation. For this reason, we have an Environmental Management System in place that strives to reduce environmental impacts and with which we have made significant progress in emission saving, waste management and energy and water consumption. This system is coupled with a Strategic Sustainability Plan which, for its part, enables us to determine important issues, goals, lines of action and improvements in processes with regard to the delivery of a safe, quality service, through an analysis of the possible risks and opportunities we face.
