   The prize was awarded by the Association ITS Spain. On April 16th, the Transport Research Center (TRANSyT) of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid received the award from Elisa Barahona, General Director of Sustainability and Mobility Planning of the city of Madrid.

   The MMO has become an indispensable tool to know the general trends of mobility in the Spanish metropolitan areas, by analyzing key indicators of mobility. Dr. Rocío Cascajo collected the award and thanked the work done since 2003 by her entire team and the members of the MMO (Transport Authorities and other permanent members), as well as the support received from government and public institutions.
