Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet, whether the aim is to improve the municipal fleet (including public transport vehicles) or to encourage residents to choose alternatively fuelled or electric vehicles over conventionally fuelled vehicles. This interactive webinar will provide an introduction to EVs as well as guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban environments. Options on fostering EV deployment and examples from cities around the world will be discussed.

The way that goods are transported within a city and delivered to their final destination has a direct impact on traffic congestion, pollution and noise. This interactive webinar will present solutions to these main challenges for city logistics, focusing on improving the overall efficiency of goods deliveries in cities. Further discussion will be related to consideration for labour, safety issues and enhancing the quality of urban transport services for the clients and the economy.

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.

The EU project SWITCH contributes to this change by helping practitioners in cities all over the EU to conduct professional behaviour change campaigns. These can be very effective to encourage people to "switch" short ubran car yourneys to walking an cycling ... and thereby to improve their health.

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.

SUTP Webinar

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. At the same time, classic transport master plans are not flexible enough to react on the dynamic growth of developing cities, as they’re not regularly reviewed and thus, becoming obsolete.

SUTP Webinar

Is your on-street parking chaotic and conflict-ridden? Is it making the streets dangerous? Is there parking on walkways? Are there many complaints about the difficulty of finding parking? Better on-street parking management is the key to success. It enables streets to function more efficiently and to be better places. Parking management helps local commerce, residents, bus services, bicycle users, people on foot, and vehicle users of all kinds. It enables efficient and fair use of street space. It can ease local traffic problems at low cost.

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. This webinar debated on the methodology to develop a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for regions with a polycentric or cross-border profile, bringing together key stakeholders to initiate dialogue across institutional and geographic boundaries. First, the Poly-SUMP methodology for urban mobility planning in complex regions was presented. Then, two different experiences from cities and regions of the CIVITAS Forum Network were offered: Thessaloniki and Central Macedonia (EL), Nova Gorica (SI) and Gorizia (IT) provided an outlook on the challenges and potentials of planning mobility respectively on a polycentric and cross-border region.

SOLUTIONS Training Kit

Sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) aims to support local authorities to plan and manage urban mobility more efficiently and fairly. With a focus on people, accessibility for all sectors of society and quality of life, this new planning paradigm is interdisciplinary and looks beyond geographical and institutional boundaries. This can be achieved by considering the local circumstances and needs and involving a wide range of stakeholders and the engagement of citizens in the decision making and planning process. In SOLUTIONS, leading cities will transfer their knowledge and experiences to take-up cities world-wide. For example, SOLUTIONS partner EMBARQ has already started to ‘tropicalize’ the EU guidelines for the Brazilian context, where sustainable urban mobility planning has become mandatory for cities. SOLUTIONS will provide take-up cities with practical experiences, training activities, study tours and practical exchange. The aim is to enable cities to start and implement SUMPs according to their local circumstances and to assist cities to make their cities economically robust, improve their environmental conditions and the make the city a liveable place for all citizens.

SOLUTIONS Training Kit

The main point to address in ‘city logistics’ is how to respond to freight requirements while decreasing environmental and social impacts. The ultimate goal being to decrease the flows of commercial road vehicles without increasing other flows like consumer car flows, to decrease commercial vehicles’ emissions and to prevent traffic congestion caused by vans and lorries double-parking during delivery. SOLUTIONS will look at policy options for public authorities to achieve these goals, including regulations (traffic restriction, low emissions zones), transport pricing and taxes, transport planning and the development of infrastructure dedicated to urban freight (lorry lanes, delivery and loading spaces, urban consolidation centres). Public authorities and private operators, both of whom have an interest in improving their vehicle fuel efficiency, consolidating of urban freight, and improving the efficiency of deliveries, have to work together to define the best urban freight schemes.
