While there are many ways to improve and extend sustainable public transport in cities throughout the world, this webinar will explore two of them: bus rapid transit (BRT) and clean vehicles. Corresponding technology, cost-efficiency issues and relevant examples will be discussed. Methods for identifying a city’s long-term public transport needs and developing feasible measures to meet these needs will also be introduced.

CIVITAS thematic course

This e-course provides information about recent developments in urban Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management. In doing so, the e-course is intended to provide support to professionals in preparation and implementation of traffic management policies and prepare an initial selection of measure types suitable for their situation. ITS and traffic management applications help cities to achieve policy goals with regard to accessibility, liveability and safety. Accelerated by technology and ICT developments, the possibilities of using ITS and traffic management in urban environments have increased substantially in the past decade.

How bikes can be transported on bus lines? Why combining bikes with public transport and where this solution can be convenient and effective? Which normative, technical and operational aspects have to be taken into account? Several measures have been already developed and tested in different CIVITAS cities. From the first experiences in Krakow, La Rochelle and Funchal to more recent solutions implemented in Brno and Zagreb, the option of carrying bicycles on board public transport vehicles is not only limited to tram and metro or restricted to folding bikes but could be easily implemented also on bus networks.

SUTP

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. In this webinar, Alejandra Leal (México City), Georgios Kontos (Regional Planning authority region Frankfurt-RheinMain), Carlos Pardo (Bogotá) present different approaches to comprehensively develop cycling as a mode of transport. Subsequently, we will discuss the key elements of cycle-inclusive planning and implementation.

Speaker: Thomas Stokell (Love to Ride): How we can apply behaviour change theory to get more people riding bicycles? Thomas Stokell is social marketer with more than 12 years’ experience designing behavior change programs specifically to promote cycling. He ran National Bike Week in New Zealand for 5 years before moving to the UK in 2007 where he established Love to Ride - the online platform that encourages more people to ride bicycles. Thomas will present their behaviour change framework and describe how cities and advocacy groups can apply a number of different behaviour change theories to encourage cycling. A description of how the Love to Ride online platform has been designed to incorporate behaviour change theory will also be given along with a case study of the Workplace Cycle Challenge programme.

CIVITAS thematic course

The concept of sustainable modes of transport is receiving increasing attention, as cities explore innovative ways to decrease motorized traffic and carbon emissions. Bike sharing is one of these ways, encouraging a less car-dependent lifestyle. It could even kick start a cycling culture in your city! This e-course provides an introduction into the concept of bike sharing and shares the experiences and strategies of different cities which already have implemented a bike sharing scheme.
E-course was developed in cooperation with VeloMondial.
