The purpose of this article is to show how we can influence urban mobility through public participation. On the one hand, this article focuses on exploring opinions of the public and professionals’ opinions regarding public participation (willingness to be involved, when and where they want to be involved etc.), and, on the other hand, it also deals with exploring traditional and digital methods and tools for public engagement (urban experiments, urban interventions, Virtual World Terf). More specifically, it focuses on exploring the role of users in urban mobility. Quantitative and qualitative research methods have been used for the purposes of this article (case study, survey and semi-structured interviews). The final part of this article offers guidelines for future development of methods and tools for public engagement, especially concerning the Terf Virtual World.

Keywords: Urban mobility, public engagement, urban design, urban interventions, digital tools, Virtual World Terf.
