Intelligent transport offers exciting possibilities for the reality of city life. It combines sustainability, traffic improvement, and awareness of energy expenditure with new business projects, the generation of proactive communities, and the creation of a loyal social base. This article aims to analyse user perception of intelligent transport in Barcelona (Spain), encompassing aspects such as intelligent transportation alternatives, engagement with the smart city, and the use of electric vehicles. The study employs qualitative (focus group) and quantitative (content analysis) methodology, following the parameters established by the 2020 European Digital Agenda. It is concluded that a high degree of consciousness of and predisposition toward the use of sustainable transport formulas exists and that the principle barriers to their adoption are price and energy independence.
