Mobility and public space have become a problem for cities around the world and Medellín, the second most important city in Colombia, has not escaped this phenomenon. This paper aims to establish how efficient has been sustainable mobility policies regarding sustainable development for the last 16 years. The aforementioned is linked to the 11th Sustainable Development Goal “Sustainable cities and communities”, the “Quality of life Report of Medellín, 2016–2021”, and the current governance practices in the city. The research has a descriptive-comparative and retrospective-longitudinal scope, with a deliberate pursuit of secondary sources. Results suggest that there are some effective specific actions to intervene in sustainable mobility. Also, there are some similarities in the intervention to this problem in the government’s administrations analyzed, but they are independent. The conclusion is that the government administration required is one that allows articulation between public, private, and civil society actors, in order for Medellin to overcome the difficulties in terms of sustainable mobility.
