    Following the recent call for a cycling strategy from the Luxembourg Presidency of the European Council, the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions, a new policy report prepared by the European Transport Safety Council and the intense advocacy work done by the European Cycling Federation, the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Safety and Security gave its contribution to the policy development and kept CIVITAS cities informed and actively involved in this very important topic. This webinar's main objective was to present the new policy developments in cycling and cycling safety and the ongoing actions as well as allowing the thematic group members and the overall CIVITAS community to bring their concrete local contributions and experiences on board. It contained two presentations (1) Safe Cycling - How Europe Can Contribute? (2) Why do cyclists feel safe in Gdansk?

    Cities in Europe are vital centres of economic activity, innovation and employment. However, they face increasing challenges to their mobility systems such as congestion, air pollution, ambient noise, CO2 emissions, road accidents and urban sprawl. To tackle these problems cities need to develop and implement coherent and challenging Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPS). This webinar presented two new tools that have recently been made available to cities to improve their mobility planning: (1) The Urban Transport Roadmaps online tool allows you to explore and identify appropriate sustainable transport policy measures, quantify the transport, environmental and economic impacts of these measures and consider an implementation pathway (roadmap) for the policy scenario. (2) EVIDENCE offers a range of tools and resources to make the argument for investing in sustainable transport and to assess its economic benefits. Such an enhanced knowledge will help facilitate effective integration of sustainable transport measures into urban mobility plans.

    By making better use of data, urban traffic and transport can be improved and made more efficient and sustainable, and cities can become more liveable and attractive. There is evidence from different countries showing that the provision of open data delivers benefits: to travellers and users by improving their journey experience and saving them time, and to transport organizations and authorities by enabling them to operate more efficiently while demonstrating openness and transparency to those who - directly or indirectly - fund them. To encourage cities and (public transport) companies to open their data more than they do now and to show how this works in practice, in this webinar some stories were shared. In the webinar some nice and diverse examples were shown of how data can be translated into useful information that can then be used to enable certain services and measures. Claudio Mantero (from Horarios do Funchal) showed the example of sharing public transport data and displaying departure times in Funchal (Madeira) and Tommaso Bonino (from Bologna, SRW - Reti e Mobilità) showed the example of what can be done with cycling data (plan locations of 1,000 bicycle shelters!) and public transport data. Aviad Heilbrun (from the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo) and Torbjørn Barslett (from Ruter As in Oslo) presented how they collect and present open data (technical platform) and what is done with it. In Tel Aviv-Yafo two hackathons were organized (in 2014 and 2016) and this helped in building a community around open data and generating a lot of ideas on what to do with the data.

    How can a city become a more accessible community for all of its citizens - and not simply by providing more wheelchair ramps and automatic doors - but actually serving all types of forms of mobility? Ensuring good accessibility for example to elderly and people with disabilities can solve lot of important daily issues for a large number of citizens. By exploring new approaches to this important issue a city can effectively improve the mobility for all of their citizens. Accessibility and social equity are at the center of this CIVITAS webinar. Three guest panelists shared their experiences and thoughts on the topic. Together these three panelists introduced new approaches, latest experiences and best practices that can help any city in evaluating their own accessibility strategy in city planning and urban mobility agenda.

    Freight distribution is a vital part of life in modern cities and plays a relevant role within the whole urban mobility system. But, among the different components of mobility, urban freight logistics had and sometimes continue to have less emphasis in city policies and thus failing to contribute to the reduction of its negative impacts on urban liveability, like noise, pollution, congestion and reduced road safety. In order to support policy makers and urban mobility practitioners, the CIVITAS WIKI project recently released the Policy Note ‘Making urban freight logistics more sustainable’ which condensates successful approaches and solutions particularly addressed to small and medium-sized European cities. This free webinar has presented and discussed in a comprehensive way the outcomes of the Policy Note offering also an insight on some selected measures. One concrete experience from the CIVITAS city of Almada (PT) on how to plan and develop an efficient and sustainable urban freight logistics system has also been presented, together with the new CIVITAS Freight Cluster established for a better coordination of urban freight projects at urban level.

    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.

    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.

    In dealing with traffic and transport cities across Europe have to find a balance between throughput, livability, safety and sustainability. Different modes of transport use the same infrastructure and most cities do not have the capacity to enlarge the network. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management can help deal with managing traffic and transport in cities. Developments in this domain - with regard to big data, in-car technology, mobile applications but also Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) - have developed rapidly recently. This leads to questions for policy makers, practitioners and traffic managers, such as: how can traffic management and ITS contribute to my policy ambitions? What do technological developments mean for systems in place in my city? How can I benefit from innovations in this field? At the moment a policy note is being prepared within CIVITAS that aims to facilitate European municipalities in their selection of sustainable, environmental friendly and cost-efficient ITS and traffic management measures to keep in line with European, national and urban goals and to fulfill the specific requirements of the city. In the webinar this policy note will be presented. The city of Malaga will present one of their ITS measures: intelligent traffic control and software development for the Management Centre of Mobility (MOVIMA). This measure aims to improve traffic flow by means of implementing advanced traffic control tools focused on reducing stop-and-go traffic, reducing and/or adapting speed, and maximizing the reduction of emissions through traffic control.

    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.

    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.

    The Bus system is a key element of every public transport network all over the world. By choosing a cleaner bus option local decision makers can contribute to the decarbonisation of the urban transport and improvement of the air quality in their cities. In order to reduce emissions from buses it is possible to act on the improvement of the vehicle technology, act on powertrain or consider alternative fuels to be used to propel the vehicle. The webinar presented and discussed the new CIVITAS Policy Note “Smart choices for cities - Clean buses for your city” as well as the report “Clean Buses - Experiences with Fuel and Technology Options” released by the European project Clean Fleets. Apart for presenting technology and fuel options, the webinar highlighted some practical city experiences in running and operating clean buses: together with the cities participating in the Clean Fleets project, also the CIVITAS demonstrative city Gdynia presented its experience in the trolleybus system. The webinar addressed in particular the following questions: (1) Why do municipalities need to consider cleaner options for buses? (2) What are the options available and which energy source/technology should be chosen? (3) What are the costs, emissions and other advantages/disadvantages of the different options? (4) Short term, medium term and long-term investment decisions

    There are several examples of city streets converted to a more balanced coexistence of different road users. Traffic calming measures and other innovative nterventions can create safer and more fluent mobility conditions for cars, public transport and goods vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. Which are the most attractive and low cost solutions? Can road design be used also for fast interventions and for active involvement of citizens in testing new traffic rules and more sustainable modes? CIVITAS WIKI and the Thematic Group Safety and Security invite you to interact, share your experiences and your questions.
