A tour of Luxembourg by bike, mobility week, an open day and vintage car market: the second half of September will be all about mobility.
As a key player in multimodal transport for everyone, the ACL works tirelessly to improve relations between the various road users. The ACL works to improve safety by focusing on training and education, based on clear rules. As such, our staff will be at your side this September.

On Thursday, 7th October, the Fleet Association for Mobility (FAM) is holding another webinar on the subject of electromobility in 2035.
‘How can worried motorists and corporate fleet managers best prepare for 2035?’ ‘Will be the ultimate form of pressure inflicted on those not in favour of electromobility?’ ‘Will we have to get rid of our combustion-powered vehicles before then?’ These are just some of the questions we will be discussing in the next ACL-FAM (Fleet Association for Mobility) webinar on 7th October from 11 am to 12.15 pm.
‘Are the objectives set by the European Union achievable?’ This issue will be central to the the debate attended by the Minister for Energy and Minister for Spatial Planning of Luxembourg, Claude Turmes, and other electromobility stakeholders.
This meeting should enable decision-makers in companies, as well as users, to approach the future of our mobility with greater peace of mind.
