The last in series CIVITAS WIKI Policy Analyses is now available online.

With its policy documents, WIKI wants to inform people in cities about a number of topics that currently play an important role in urban mobility.

This final policy analysis focuses on the topic of cycling in the city.

Over 70% of all Europeans live in cities and cities are becoming increasingly congested and this percentage is increasing. As a result, cities are becoming more congested, suffer from increasingly poor air quality, more noise and are generally less liveable. Increasing the number of people who cycle can be an important step towards more sustainable and liveable cities. Cycling also brings personal health benefis.

This document provides information about measures that can be taken in order to increase the use of cycling as a transport mode in the urban environment. The authors are aware of the fact that cities differ in their infrastructural developments. The ease of implementing the measures might therefore differ from one city to another.
