Mobilising Mobility

This webinar explores a range of project pioneering innovative approaches to Mobility as a Service (MaaS). First Roberto Palacin from MyCorridor will present an international approach to MaaS, how to look beyond the local arena and implement MaaS across borders. This is followed by Maurizio Veronese from CIVITAS HANDSHAKE, who will present the MaaS situation and the bike sharing system in the city of Turin.

In many cases, MaaS systems require Public-Private collaboration to succeed, Soufian Jahouh from the MOBI-MIX project will present an interactive tool designed to help cities implement such collaboration in Smart Mobility. This webinar is moderated by Ivo Cre. Speakers include: Roberto Palacin from the University of NewCastle (MyCorridor) Maurizio Veronese from 5T Turin (CIVITAS HANDSHAKE) Soufian Jahouh from the City of Rotterdam (MOBI-MIX)

The webinar was orgnanisd by POLIS in cooperation with MyCorridor, MOBI-MIX, HANDSHAKE and CIVITAS SATELLITE projects.

Mobilising Mobility

The concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) claims to offer a personal mobility package based on lifestyle needs and delivered through a single interface and subscription.

The CIVITAS SATELLITE initiative brings you in this webinar examples of CIVITAS cities that have seen an opportunity on this trend and have worked on its implementation within their projects.

ECCENTRIC partners have developed the MaaS readiness indicators to ensure that all possible aspects of the current situation are taken into consideration before the local environment is ready for MaaS.

ECCENTRIC cities Turku and Madrid present the guidelines and their local approach to MaaS while PORTIS city Antwerp present their Mobility Marketplace and their MaaS approach focused on encouraging Public-Private cooperation.

This webinar is moderated by Ivo Cré. Featured speakers include: Stijn Vernaillen (Antwerp) Nuria Caballero (Madrid) Stella Aaltonen (Turku) The webinar is a Polis initiative in cooperation with CIVITAS SATELLITE, CIVITAS ECCENTRIC and CIVITAS PORTIS.

Mobilising Mobility

Throughout the world, cities are making bold decisions about cars in their streets…and buildings.

This webinar presents recent insights on parking issues that will reshape our cities and our mobility in a fundamental way.

How do we shape and regulate the built environment in our cities? Can we drastically cut parking from the public space? How will new mobility change parking needs and parking behaviour – and how should cities respond?

The webinar is moderated by Ivo Cré. Featured speakers are:

  • Theo Thuis (Q-Park on behalf of EPA - European Parking Association) Martina Hertel (DIFU Park4SUMP Partner)
  • Hervé Levifve (City of Paris)
  • Benjamin Sternkopf (Berlin Sustainable traffic development & mobility research Expert Berlin)
  • Benjamin Clark (University of Oregon)
  • Patrick Auwerx (Mobiel 21 Park4SUMP Project Coordinator)

The webinar was organised by Polis in cooperation with the European Parking Association and featuring the Park4SUMP project.

CIVITAS webinars

On Tuesday 19th November 2019, the H2020 project CoEXist and Civitas held a joint webinar on automation-ready transport modelling tools. The speakers addressed the question: How to include Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) in traffic flow and transport demand simulations?

The overall aim of CoEXist is to prepare the transition phase during which automated and conventional vehicles will co-exist on cities’ roads and to make local authorities “automation-ready”.

CoEXist defines the concept of “automation-readiness” as: “The capability of making structured and informed decisions about the deployment of CAVs in a mixed road environment.”

The webinar guides the audience through the new functionalities of the automation-ready modelling tools to understand the benefits of such functionalities.

It is explained how automated vehicles could be modelled at a microscopic scale the operation of CAVs in platoons as well as at the macroscopic level, including the impacts of CAVs on transport demand and traffic time performance.

Who is this course for?

The course is aimed mainly at transport planners in local authorities of small and medium sized cities. Other interested individuals are also welcome, e.g. from consultancies or recent graduates.

Overall aim of the course

To increase the capacity of S-M cities, to implement and monitor the Innovative Transport Schemes (InnoTS) measures throughout policymaking, budgeting, designing and facing the current challenges when implementing these measures.

Specific objectives of the course

Increasing the understanding about the value of InnoTS in our cities, the effects/cost of lack of urban mobility regulations, the operators and the economy of the city, the stakeholders involved and their needs and about the concept and methodology for implementing InnoTS measures while being able to recognise or find out the needs of urban freight transport users.

Building specific skills regarding how success of the measures can be ensured

  • By convincing stakeholders and by overcoming financial, legal, administrative and technical barriers

Specifically, the course is designed to:

  • Strengthen cooperation between LA’s staff

  • Advance local priorities on InnoTS

  • Offer concrete practical tools and guidance to better implement these Schemes

CIVITAS MaaS Webinars

The concept of MaaS claims to offer a personal mobility package based on lifestyle needs and delivered through a single interface and subscription. On 26 June, the first edition of the CIVITAS Webinar Series on MaaS took place. It discussed the how MaaS can be delivered sustainably. The next editions of the series are due in September and October, register here to learn about them.

Maria Kamargianni of the MaaS Lab of the renown University College London introduced the concept of MaaS, and its relation to public transport and other modes. She talked about the potential impact of MaaS for user, citing evidence of a London case study. She carried on explaining the effects MaaS might impose on urban transport as a system.

Suzanne Hoadley of Polis explained the perspective of cities and regions on Mobility as a Service. She emphasised that transport authorities are obliged to deliver mobility services to their inhabitants. Thus, she suggested that they shall keep control of the developments related to MaaS ensuring that the quality and level of service can be maintained. 

Vincent Neumayer of Wiener Linien talked about the exceptional case of Vienna, that established its own MaaS environment, including their own app company. He explained the framework in which the Vienna MaaS system is set up and the services Wiener Linien and their subsidy deliver to interested other cities and transport operators. Stella Aaltonen of the City of Turku introduced the MaaS readiness indicator, which they developed in the CIVITAS ECCENTRIC project. She explained the indicators separately, emphasising the different dimensions of the matrix and their application. She carried on introducing first results of the pilot cities.

CIVITAS SATELLITE Webinar Series

Automated? Autonomous? Self-driving? Connected? Cooperative? So many different terms, so many different questions, yet not that many answers. To clarify these and provide a better context to how the topic connected and automated driving (CAD) is shaping around the world, the CIVITAS SATELLITE project in cooperation with the H2020 CoEXist project organised a webinar on automation in cities on Monday, 26 February 2018, at 12:00 – 13:30 CET.

The aim of this webinar was to give an introduction to automation and initiate a dialogue to increase the awareness of local authorities and other urban mobility stakeholders and practitioners. Starting a discussion now will help cities prepare for and understand the issues that arise due to the constant technological development. The webinar particularly focused on the role of automation for public transport and gave a concrete example on how a mid-sized city is preparing for automation.
