When we want to change behaviour, targeted messages that appeal to the individual will have more effect than a one-fits-all approach. In this webinar, we will give a brief overview of the benefits of and techniques for setting up targeted campaigns for specific segments of people. The city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, will present their experiences with their successful campaign developed within the SEGMENT project. SEGMENT experimented with two types of segmentation techniques: (1) Targeting consumers undergoing ‘life change moments’ which causes them to question and reconsider their travel habits. (2) Clustering these consumers (using detailed questionnaires) into relatively homogenous groups (in terms of their attitudes towards car use, cycling, electric vehicles or wider issues such as climate change and health etc.) and then devising bespoke campaigns.

El crecimiento rápido, no planificado y descoordinado de las ciudades ha puesto seriamente en peligro los sistemas de transporte existentes y ha incrementado significativamente el desafío de crear futuros sistemas de transporte, especialmente en los países en desarrollo. Es en los países en desarrollo, principalmente en las áreas urbanas, donde el mayor crecimiento del parque automotor se ha visto en los últimos años y se espera para los años venideros. Los impactos ambientales y sociales de estas tendencias son significativos ya que están directamente relacionados con la calidad de vida y la productividad urbana. Estos impactos incluyen congestión, consumo energético, contaminación del aire, carencias de seguridad y accidentes de tráfico. Por ende, las cuestiones de transporte urbano son de suma importancia para apoyar las exigencias de movilidad en las ciudades de rápido crecimiento y necesitan nuevas aproximaciones. Sin embargo, el transporte urbano es un asunto más político que técnico. Los aspectos técnicos son relativamente simples. Las decisiones difíciles están relacionadas con la ciudad que queremos y la manera como queremos vivir en ella. “¿Quién se va a beneficiar de los modelos adoptados? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un modelo diferente al de las denominadas ciudades del mundo avanzado? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un sistema de transporte que le dé prioridad a los pobres en lugar de a la minoría propietaria de automóvil particular? ¿Estamos tratando de encontrar la forma más eficiente y económica de mover a la población de la ciudad de la manera más limpia y cómoda? ¿O simplemente estamos tratando de minimizar los atascos del tráfico de las clases altas? Estas preguntas son formuladas por Enrique Peñalosa, ex-alcalde de Bogotá (Colombia), quién introdujo una serie de medidas de transporte sostenible en su ciudad. Este curso de Movilidad Urbana Sostenible en Países en Desarrollo está diseñado para proveer respuestas a las preguntas mencionadas así como soluciones y aproximaciones alternativas en planeación de transporte urbano que apunten a un sistema de transporte más sostenible en las ciudades de países en desarrollo.

With 500 million NFC mobile devices in use today, the use of intelligent NFC tags in industries such as mobility, tourism, shopping and marketing open up novel ways of interacting with customers.

In this webinar we discuss transport ticketing smart cards, smart city smart cards, mobile NFC devices and software development kits. We explore how these elements can be used to contribute towards creating a smart city by integrating information with security and connectivity. In addition, we take a look at how open data and easy to use software development kits make a smart city eco system accessible to a broad developer base.

By watching this webinar you will learn about the benefits of new information technologies, how they can be rolled out and how they add value to cities. In addition, we will take a tour through the most recent technological developments and how these can be used to create a smart city. Finally, we give a perspective from an integrator point of view on what it means to build up a novel transport ticketing system and the possibilities to interlink with other, existing services in the city.

SUTP Webinar

Urban Mobility Plans (UMPs) are a strategic tool to guide the development of transport in urban areas and regions. 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. National urban transport policies can shape planning frameworks and guidelines, offer capacity-building formats to planners and provide necessary funding for investments in sustainable transport infrastructures.

TRANSFORuM

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."

Proposed measures, actions and milestones towards the White Paper goal on urban mobility: "Halve the use of ‘conventionally fuelled’ cars in urban transport by 2030; phase them out in cities by 2050. Achieve essentially CO2-free city logistics in major urban centres by 2030."

CIVITAS

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. First the gaps to be filled about public transport and planning have been discussed, then the point of view of a civic platform to improve transport through citizens’ participation has been presented and lastly the successful city strategy implemented by a former demonstration city of CIVITAS II has been showcased.

SUTP Webinar

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). To contribute to this target developed countries will have to rapidly decarbonise their transport sector over the coming decades (-80% by 2050) and developing and emerging countries will have to curb growth (+70% by 2050), which will require substantial policy action at all levels of government (IEA 2014). Together with Oliver Lah (Wuppertal Institute) we explore the pathways for low-carbon transport and provide an overview on key policy measures at the local and national level.

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. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Urban Freight Logistics with the support of CIVITAS WIKI, the webinar will presented 3 case studies and discussed more in detail of cargo bikes for last mile delivery as well as of regulatory measures and incentives for zero emission city logistics.
