CIVITAS Insight 12 - Integrated ticketing and fare policy for public transport

People are more willing to use sustainable travel options that offer better value and are more convenient. Integrated public transport ticketing and fair tariffs can help to overcome perceived and objective barriers. Facilitating the combination of modes by making ticketing systems as easy to use as possible is proven to increase the attractiveness of public transport.

CIVITAS Insight 11 - Long-Term Evaluation in CIVITAS

Since 2002 the CIVITAS Initiative has developed and implemented more than 800 technical and policy-based urban transport measures. Evaluations of the impact and implementation of these measures gave rise to valuable lessons for other cities. CIVITAS offers mobility professionals working for and in cities numerous examples of successful measures that give substance to the transition towards cleaner and better urban transport.

CIVITAS Insight 10 - Bike-sharing as a link to desired destinations

Bike-sharing systems provide public access to bicycles for a limited time. Some provide free access to members and others charge a monthly or yearly fee. Some schemes operate stations across an entire city and others are intended for commuters. But they all have a common goal: improving the cycling culture in cities and encouraging people to cycle more.

CIVITAS Insight 09 - Same destination - Same vehicle

While much of the CIVITAS Initiative’s work has sought to shift travellers out of their cars and onto public transport or bicycle, carpooling involves sharing rides among travellers in the same vehicle going to the same destination. Carpooling can be facilitated through ‘matching’ services, but the shared rides themselves are very casual.
