Two years ago, municipal government decided to change policy about traffic in city centre in order to reduce traffic car and promote non-motorized modes of transport and public transport, that is, a sustainable mobility. This paper show the main results of a final work of Master in Transport, Territory and Urbanism of Polytechnic University of Valencia. It objective is adjust a methodology to apply the superblocks model in a big historical city centre such as Valencia. The work focuses on a possible superblock in city centre of Valencia. The Spanish cadastre allows mapping the all uses in buildings measured in square meters of ceiling. Between them, especially those uses that produces travel attraction such as commercial uses, parking, residential, offices, entertainment … These data allows stablishing a different networks to different modal mobility. The design of networks is done using the concept of offer management. That is, the objective of networks is satisfy the needs of mobility but not the demand of traffic. Go walking and cycling are the priority modes of transport, after public transport to access to city centre from outside by underground, bus or taxi and finally traffic car to emergencies, services for disable or old people, loading and unloading and access parking. The methodology to design networks is applied in case study and produces an integrate mobility model to superblock selected as area of study.
