Abstract: In recent decades, urban mobility problems have increased in the city of Daule, Ecuador, due to the indiscriminate growth of the central zone. These problems are due to vehicular congestion and negative social and environmental impacts on the quality of life and the deterioration of the urban image caused by the increase in motorized transport. The urban mobility model that is presented seeks to contribute to sustainability and increase safety through a strategy that promotes public transport and non-motorized transport based population's displacement needs and care of the environment. The research design is exploratory and descriptive based on quantitative and qualitative analysis of the appearance and diagnosis of the general characteristics of the sector. The graphic results are obtained with ArcGis where Jan Gehl's methodology on urban architecture is applied, which allows considering the human dimension of public space according to the scope B-Sustainable Mobility.

Keywords: Daule Ecuador, sustainable urban mobility, environmental impact, urban displacement, urban image.
