Mobility City is a Fundación Ibercaja initiative supported by the Government of Aragon which places Zaragoza and Aragon at the forefront of the debate on new mobility and the transformation of associated industries and sectors, with the collaboration of leading institutions and companies.

What is Mobility City?

The Zaha Hadid Bridge is an avant-garde space that houses the Mobility Museum, the 21st century’s first mobility technology museum. it is a focal point in the field of new mobility and one of the world’s leading examples of what the cities of the future and the movement of people through them will be like.

This trailblazing space hosts presentations, sector activities and conferences, as well as educational and family activities. In addition to displaying the new means of transport inside its walls, the new Technological Museum of Mobility promoted by the Fundación Ibercaja together with the Government of Aragon aims to be a meeting and dissemination point for learning about advances in sustainable mobility.

Mobility City started in june 2018 with the backing of partners from a number of mobility-related sectors, including automotive, telecommunications, energy and infrastructure companies, as well as local and state institutions, research institutes, associations and universities.

Mobility City positions the future mobility agenda at the highest level of development policies and disseminates knowledge to society. It also helps partners to share best practices and innovative ideas and thus work together to promote mobility as a service.

The emblematic building designed by architect Zaha Hadid finds in Mobility City the ideal project for professional and citizen use. The remodelling of the space between 2019 and 2022 has made converted the bridge into a comfortable space fitted with enclosures and air conditioning that has nonetheless retained its function as a great pedestrian walkway over the Ebro River. The intervention made it possible for bridge to be used for exhibition purposes, definitively converting it into a symbol of innovation and highlighting zaragoza as an international sustainable mobility benchmark.

The Zaha Hadid Bridge will feature an extensive programme of visits and activities where visitors can learn about the highs and lows of mobility today. At the unparalleled Technological Museum of Mobility you can admire the latest mobility mechanisms, future means of transport, digitalisation as a way to make vehicles more efficient and new ways of making mobility cleaner, safer and healthier.

Visitors will not only learn about the latest advances in mobility, but they will be able to understand and experience them and thus join the changes that are taking place in the world’s most advanced cities.

Along with visits to the museum, Fundación Ibercaja is organising an extensive programme of activities that includes conferences, sectorial meetings, exhibitions, educational experiences and courses.

What is it like?

The Zaha Hadid Bridge (joining the banks of the Ebro river), provides a free-access linear route where visitors can experience the latest mobility product and service roll-outs and get a glimpse of what tomorrow’s means of transport may look like. It includes a wide range of exhibition content such as a model of the Hyperloop TT prototype as well as other innovative examples of tomorrow’s mobility. The space is rounded out by a world connected by experiences in which the visitor takes a free walk through the space with 10 marked milestones, with vehicle configurators and other tools there to provide information on the products and services on display.

The space is divided into two main areas, one for exhibition and dissemination and another where companies and organisations in the Mobility City community will present their latest developments in mobility as a service that is sustainable, urban, connected, autonomous and shared in nature. A varied selection of activities and exhibitions with advanced audiovisual technologies that offer visitors unique experiences through games and educational challenges, complemented by an outdoor leisure and dining area.

Manufacturers have their own spaces for the exchange of ideas and collaborative development, including an area for presentations and events.

In addition, companies showcase their research and innovations in a space that is open to all types of education centres and universities and whose purpose is to become a focal point for family leisure.

But Mobility City is much more than that and extends to other areas of the city and even to the Autonomous Community and to all types of groups. A testing and awareness area for urban personal mobility vehicles has been planned, where users can get to know and familiarise themselves with them and learn about local laws governing their use.

“The Zaha Hadid Bridge in Zaragoza for the Mobility City project was, in 2019, in the process of being adapted. The space was to be divided into two main areas, an exhibition and dissemination area and another where the companies involved in the project can present their latest innovations”
