Urban Nodes

The webinar is organised in the framework of the study “Improving the efficiency of the transport system in urban nodes of the TEN-T core network”, which was carried out on behalf of DG MOVE. The 88 urban nodes are often the starting point or the final destination ("first” and “last mile") for passengers and freight moving. From the TEN-T perspective, the main aim is to remove urban bottlenecks and missing physical, technical and organisational links on the infrastructure.

When considering the quality of urban mobility decisions, most CIVITAS cities involve a wide range of stakeholders in the measure development process. Through consultations, local communities are empowered and get a sense of ownership of results. At the same time, the level of interaction between decision makers and the target of their decisions is substantially increased, thus enhancing measure completeness, giving stakeholders a better understanding of the planned mobility measures and reducing later opposition to urban mobility. Involving the public has added value, but where to start?

In order to reduce motorised traffic, people will have to adopt a less car-dependent lifestyle. To manage this shift in mentality and behaviour, cities need to promote new forms of transport use and ownership. Car sharing is one way to reduce motorized traffic and carbon emissions and make a valuable contribution to more sustainable urban mobility. This e-course provides an introduction into the concept of car sharing in a variety of forms as well as experiences of different cities that already have implemented a car sharing scheme.

Shared mobility or shared transportation such as bike and carsharing has grown impressively in recent years. Shared mobility is situated within the broader context of the so-called ‘sharing economy’. This comes in many shapes: from real-estate sharing, to property sharing to transportation sharing. This e-course provides a general introduction into the concept of shared mobility. It sets the broad context, explaining the motives and benefits, and illustrates that shared mobility is actually more than bike and car-sharing.

The amount and quality of energy (in particular fossil fuels) consumed by motorised vehicles is not only a burden to our atmosphere, but also generates airborne pollutants like sulphur, nitrogen oxides or carbon monoxide - to name a few. Those pollutants have severe impacts on our environment and our health - particularly in heavily populated urban areas. The Avoid-Shift-Improve (ASI)-approach helps to counteract air pollution.

Today, many trips that are carried out using conventional cars could be done by light electric vehicles (LEVs). This would make urban transport much more sustainable. Emissions would “evaporate”, congestion would be reduced, transport would become safer, quieter and cheaper and public health would improve. Overall, replacement of car trips by LEV trips would make our cities much more liveable.

Bicycles are an increasingly popular mode of transport in cities around the developing and developed world alike. However, many cities do not have sufficient technical tools or knowledge to develop comprehensive plans to increase safety and convenience for users of this vehicle. However, many kilometres of cycling infrastructure have been added to cities (not only) in European and Latin American cities, turning those cities from pioneers in cycling development in their countries into true cycling cities.

Planning and policy decisions in Urban Mobility Plans (UMPs) are optimally based on extensive transport system data, travel demand data as well as travel behaviour. Developed cities and regions are using transport demand models to investigate the impact of particular measures. Those models rely on data input from various sources - i.e. from traffic counts, household surveys and further socio-economic and geo data. Most developing cities lack such comprehensive data to inform mobility planning and policy decisions, but many are catching up.

Planning urban mobility is a complex undertaking for any city, even more so when urban functions, people and mobility are scattered across different towns of polycentric or cross-border regions. Indeed, planning mobility in polycentric and cross-border regions requires the coordination of policies and services of many stakeholders - transport and urban planners, local and regional policy makers, urban and interurban public transport providers - within and across different centres and administrative boundaries.

In dealing with traffic and transport cities across Europe have to find a balance between throughput, livability, safety and sustainability. Different modes of transport use the same infrastructure and most cities do not have the capacity to enlarge the network. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management can help deal with managing traffic and transport in cities. Developments in this domain - with regard to big data, in-car technology, mobile applications but also Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) - have developed rapidly recently.

UMPs expanded the scope of traditional planning processes by focusing on the mobility needs of all population groups in an integrated way. At the same time, an UMP could be a powerful instrument for realising over-arching policy, e.g. in the field of equity and sustainable economic development, greenhouse gas emission reduction, air quality and urban development.

The Transport White paper also contains one goal about high-speed rail: "By 2050, complete a European high-speed rail network. Triple the length of the existing high-speed rail network by 2030 and maintain a dense railway network in all Member States. By 2050 the majority of medium-distance passenger transport should go by rail." This package provides a summary of the related stakeholder-driven TRANSFORuM roadmap.

Summary of the stakeholder-driven roadmap towards the White Paper goal on Long-distance Freight: "Thirty per cent of road freight over 300 km should shift to other modes such as rail or waterborne transport by 2030, and more than 50 % by 2050, facilitated by efficient and green freight corridors. To meet this goal will also require appropriate infrastructure to be developed."

The need to adopt a gender-sensitive perspective is emerging as a challenging and impending task for urban mobility planners and decision makers. Women travel differently than men in relation to transport modes used, distance travelled, the daily number of trips and their pattern, and, not surprisingly, they also travel for different purposes. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group Integrated Planning, the webinar debated on emerging gender sensitive approaches on mobility planning for achieving gender equality in transport planning and accessibility.

The transport sector currently accounts for about 6.7 Gigatonnes of CO2, which is equivalent to 23% of all energy related Greenhouse Gas emissions and is set to double by 2050 if current trends persist, in particular in emerging economies (IPCC 2014). Setting the transport sector on a low-carbon development pathway is essential for global climate change mitigation efforts that aim to stabilise global warming at 2 Degrees Celsius, which is the internationally agreed target under the United Nations Framework Conventions on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Most of our city centres are often overrun by freight delivery vehicles causing severe congestion problems and pollution. Urban Freight Logistic has to be re-thinked by introducing on one hand some restrictive measures for a more efficient freight distribution and, on the other, new “green“ vehicles more suitable for historical city centres and humanised areas.

TIDE: New pricing measures

Both parking prices and parking problems vary greatly among cities, but no city is entirely free of parking challenges. Charging for something that was previously free can be an unpopular, but necessary, decision for a city to take. Using examples from cities that have successfully implemented new parking pricing schemes, this course will address issues such as: How can you increase citizen acceptance of a new (or higher) parking charge? Is it fair to make drastic changes in transport conditions? How do you find the “correct” level of charging?

An assessment prior to implementation helps you select appropriate and cost-effective mobility measures, and gives you an idea whether the measures will bring the intended results. TIDE has developed a straightforward tool for determining the impacts of new transport measures. In this course, you can use the tool to assess measures from your own local context.

CIVITAS VANGUARD, CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Less car intensive lifestyles' held a first webinar on how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and towards clean and energy efficient transport by addressing children and young adults on 2 March 2012. When walking and cycling, children become more aware of their surroundings and develop road safety skills as well as improve their ability to anticipate other road users.

The rapid and often unplanned and uncoordinated growth of cities has seriously compromised existing transportation systems and significantly increased the challenge of creating future transportation systems especially in developing countries. It is indeed in developing countries that the greatest growth in motor vehicles has been seen in the past few years and is expected in the future, primarily in urban areas. The environmental and social impacts are significant and directly related to quality of life and urban productivity.
