CIVITAS Case Study - Influencing travel behaviour and modal choice in Brighton & Hove

Brighton & Hove City Council carried out three travel planning projects as part of the CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES project. School travel plans focused on helping children and their parents travel to and from school in a safe, practical, sustainable and enjoyable way. Commuter travel plans focused on working with local organisations/businesses to put in place measures to encourage members of staff to travel to, from and within work in a sustainable way.

CIVITAS Case Study - Testing the Air in Brighton & Hove

This measure involved the use of static and mobile air quality monitoring equipment to record and analyse ambient air quality. The data was displayed in real time in schools
participating in the project; and used as the basis for an educational initiative on the effects of emissions and pollution.

CIVITAS Case Study - Hybrid bus is better for Bath

The hybrid bus measure of the CIVITAS RENAISSANCE project was designed to demonstrate the feasibility of operation of a diesel electric hybrid bus alongside conventional diesel vehicles on a Park and Ride routes in Bath. From August 2010 until February 2012, an experimental Wrightbus hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) was used in passenger carrying service on the three Bath Park & Ride services as a substitute for one of the dedicated fleet of eight Volvo B7TL diesel vehicles.

CIVITAS Case Study - Improved Bus Services for the Disabled

From September 2009 to June 2010 five special minibuses were introduced in Brno. These now operate on specific lines for mobility-impaired people and also on regular lines in low demand areas or in the evenings and during the weekends, when the special lines are out of service. The basic requirement for the minibuses were that they should be able to transport at least six wheelchairs at the same time. This goal was achieved and the feedback from both mobility-impaired and other passengers is positive.
