Collective Passenger Transport

Quality and efficiency of public transport and better integration with other modes.

This thematic group focuses on clean and energy-efficient public transport fleets, ticketing systems, service integration and intermodality, accessibility for people with reduced mobility, innovative public transport systems, management schemes and schemes for financing investments in collective transport modes.

CIVITAS cities are working on innovative ways to maximise the potential for local public transport systems through an accessible and fair service that is a fast and convenient alternative to the private car.

Low-Clearance Rapid Transit (LCRT) is a concept for radically improved cost-efficiency of high quality urban rail transport, made possible by a mix of technology and traffic management.

The core idea of LCRT is a rapid tram line completely separated from car traffic (no level crossings except for pedestrians), but mainly at-grade with extraordinary short and shallow underpasses instead of a continuously elevated or underground line.

A more comprehensive description and a feasibility study can be found at http://http://buschbacher.at/LCRTen.html .

The EVIDENCE project is a strategic initiative funded by EACI to investigate the evidence for sustainable urban mobility measures. This final workshop will present the findings and recommendations from the project, look at how the evidence has been used in cities and campaigns, and investigate the barriers to integration of sustainable mobility. It will finish with a look at the gaps in the evidence, new forms of mobility to be investigated and how best to implement the evidence.

Youth For Public Transport (Y4PT) Foundation, with the support of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) and its members, and following the long-standing tradition of Y4PT Youth Lab series, is promoting the organization of local transport hackathons around the world, by combining the best of boundless human creativity and the benefits of current information and communications technologies (ICTs) in collaborative environments, with the aim of advancing transport sector towards sustainability.

Winners from each local transport hackathon will join other Canada-based hackers at the 1st Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon Montreal 2017 ( http://www.y4pt.org/projects/hackathon ) in the framework of the 62nd UITP Global Public Transport Summit Montreal 2017 – the world’s oldest and leading sustainable transport event – to contest in a final round for unveiling the world’s best ground-breaking transport solutions.

More than 20 major cities around the world are hosting the first local transport hackathons. Other cities are also welcome to join.

Different local stakeholders such as universities, youth groups, ICT companies, transport operators, authorities, start-up mentors and hackers are called to collaborate with Y4PT and to be part of the world’s first ever global transport hackathon.

Everyone is invited to get on board. This is an one-off opportunity to show to your audience and users how important is for you to support this kind of events where innovation and creativity is putting forward new ICT-related solutions to boost both the private sector business performance and the public sector policy efficacy, and thus to unlock new opportunities to expand, diversify and renew your organization’s portfolio of products and services.

Further information on the 1st Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon Montreal 2017 at http://www.y4pt.org/projects/hackathon , or or please contact: Mr. Sebastián PERNET, Co-Founder and Treasurer of Y4PT Foundation, sebastian.pernet@y4pt.org .

Follow up the Y4PT Transport Hackathon series on social networking/media websites ( http://www.y4pt.org/social-networks ) such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram and YouTube by using the hashtag #Y4PThackathon .

The EVIDENCE Project has researched and published the economic evidence for sustainable mobility measures. For those involved in training and educating the next generation of transport professionals, the project has made available course material on 7 sustainable mobility themes. These can be downloaded from the project website to be incorporated into your course framework.

We are an start-up from Barcelona area developing an exciting project of shared mobility: Shotl (www.shotl.com). With Shotl, citizens will insert their desired origin and destination through their smart phone. The system will match the requested route with that of other users traveling in the same direction. One of our main focus is to offer a great customer experience during all the trip, including vehicles with extra comfort, facilities to work on board and vehicles driven by professionals.
We want to work together with public bodies and transit agencies to contribute to better, greener and more accessible cities, enabling the change to more car-independent lifestyles.

We are currently developing and calibrating our product, and trying to understand which are the best cities and environments to do our first deployments. Thus, we would really appreciate collaboration from this forum on the following topics:
- Previous similar experiences that could help us learning the crucial success factors (i.e. Kutsuplus in Helsinki) and best practices.
- Research studies investigating or predicting the potential impacts of a service like ours.
- Regulation, legal and political benchmarking (barriers and facilitators) among EU cities and countries.
- Suggestion of potential cities and areas that would be open and suitable to test Shotl.

Please do not hesitate to ask us more detailed questions about Shotl in case you are interested. We would appreciate help and suggestions.

Kind regards.

One of the possible ways to reduce energy consumption in a tram network is to capture the energy that trams generate during braking. Normally, some of this energy is reused by the vehicle auxiliaries (e.g. heating and cooling) while some is sent back to the overhead line to power other vehicles....

CIVITAS FACTS&FIGURES: Collective Passenger Transport measures in CIVITAS Plus cities (2008-2012)

Policy Recommendations For EU Sustainable Mobility Concepts based on CIVITAS Experience

The Policy Recommendations present the main findings arising from the evaluation of the CIVITAS Plus Collaborative Projects (CPs), which ran from 2008-2012.

This publication was written under the auspices of the CIVITAS POINTER project, which supported five collaborative projects (CP s) implemented within the framework of the third edition of the CIVITAS programme. Evaluation and monitoring were the key stones of CIVITAS POINTER. Drawing from first-hand, corroborated statistical evidence gathered from participating cities, this publication presents the results of the CIVITAS Plus cross-site evaluation and policy assessment. These findings support the development of clear European-level policy recommendations that have the potential for being embraced by all European cities — not just those which make up the CIVITAS community.

The document seeks to identify factors that can boost the effectiveness and consistency of future strategies, thereby securing greater sustainability in urban mobility patterns. Policy makers are provided with contemporary facts for debating purposes, and a number of conclusions and recommendations based on lessons learnt from CIVITAS Plus are put forward.

Giving back the public space to the people - Mobility measures in Vitoria-Gasteiz

In the context of the next CIVITAS study tour hosted by the city of  Vitoria-Gasteiz on the 196&20 June 2014, an interested document presenting the mobility measures implmented by the city has been created:  

The main measures presented:

  • Superblocks project;
  • Traffic calming measures;
  • Freight distribution areas and limitations;
  • New Public transport network;
  • Local Bicycle Mobility Plan.
