Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI) project invites you to save the date for the launch of its online indicator training course!

The course is aimed at representatives of urban areas that want to measure and track the performance of sustainable mobility and mobility professionals that would like to better understand the collection of urban mobility data.

Course tutors will provide expert insight to familiarise participants with the SUMI indicator set and to offer guidance in the process of applying the indicators with real-world examples.

During the course, mobility experts will be on hand to answer any questions participants may have about the indicators. Participants will also be able to access online course materials and an online forum at any point after the course finishes.

The course is structured along four main themes:

  • Introduction and Current Mobility Situation
  • Public Transport System
  • Transport Externalities
  • Integration and Next Steps

The course will conclude with a live webinar highlighting the performance of a custom-made benchmarking tool that will compare the performance of the cities who participated in the initial testing and revision of the SUMI indicator set.

The eCourse will be launched on 18 November and will be active until 13 December.

Participants can access the course on the Rupprecht Consult eLearning Platform.

Learn all about Dutch Cycling Infrastructure Design This training will equip you with a solid set of technical and policy-making skills for developing cycling policy and planning cycling infrastructure.

One of the most renowned manuals for cycling infrastructure design is the Cycling Design Manual. This manual was edited by DTV Consultants and published by the Dutch CROW institute – leading institute for infrastructure design. It is based on decades of research into Dutch cycling policy and infrastructure development. The manual is relevant for both starting and mature cyclist infrastructure designers. It comprises a step-by-step guide for developing a cycling policy and creating safe infrastructure designs.

DTV Consultants – with more than 25 years of experience in delivering training courses and professional education – has put together a unique training course aimed at professionals in cycling policy and cycling infrastructure planning. This five-day course will teach you how to apply the CROW Cycling Design Manual to your situation. Moreover, we will teach you to develop cycling policy and infrastructure.

FLOW

This EU-funded mobility project offers training courses to help companies develop innovative solutions that can reduce congestion in cities. The FLOW project aims to tackle urban congestion by developing walking and cycling measures. Its training courses are for companies, such as app developers and consultancies, that provide products and services related to urban transport, urban planning, walking and cycling and/or reducing urban road congestion. The training consists of interactive e-learning modules and webinars that introduce new products developed by FLOW partners, such as software that analyses traffic, provides forecasts, and manages data from geographic information systems. Companies that take part in the training will feature in an online catalogue that FLOW will present to European local authorities - opening doors to new contacts and potential clients.

CIVITAS thematic course

In order to reduce motorised traffic, people will have to adopt a less car-dependent lifestyle. To manage this shift in mentality and behaviour, cities need to promote new forms of transport use and ownership. Car sharing is one way to reduce motorized traffic and carbon emissions and make a valuable contribution to more sustainable urban mobility. This e-course provides an introduction into the concept of car sharing in a variety of forms as well as experiences of different cities that already have implemented a car sharing scheme.

CIVITAS thematic course

Shared mobility or shared transportation such as bike and carsharing has grown impressively in recent years. Shared mobility is situated within the broader context of the so-called ‘sharing economy’. This comes in many shapes: from real-estate sharing, to property sharing to transportation sharing. This e-course provides a general introduction into the concept of shared mobility. It sets the broad context, explaining the motives and benefits, and illustrates that shared mobility is actually more than bike and car-sharing. There are specific e-courses both for bike-sharing and for car-sharing where these particular types of shared mobility are covered in more depth.

E-course was developed in cooperation with Mobiel 21.

TIDE: Non-motorised transport

Even if the route from home to destination is safe and comfortable for cycling, if the bike parking is insufficient or unsafe, people will be discouraged from cycling for transportation. This course will look at different types of bike parking and what types are appropriate for different locations. It will also address the value to businesses and to employers of providing bike parking for their customers and employees.

GEF-SUTP Training Modules on Sustainable Urban Transport Planning (2013)

The Government of India (GoI) initiated the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), UNDP, and the World Bank. The objective of the SUTP is to facilitate the provision of urban transport infrastructure and services in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP), which is a shift towards public transport and other sustainable modes of travel. One major component of this project involves building capacity amongst practitioners in the field of urban transport in order to strengthen policy making, decision-making, project implementation and management, operations and project evaluation skills at the central, state and city levels. The capacity building component of GEF - SUTP aims to establish the needed capacity for regular skill development of practitioners, public officials, other public functionaries, and urban professionals in the field of urban transport to be able to find solutions to these problems and apply the skills to planning. Accordingly, a set of 10 subject modules, each for a group of topics on subjects associated with sustainable urban transport planning, were developed by EMBARQ India, GIZ-SUTP and UMTC. These 10 modules are structured in such a way so as to provide the necessary background together with case studies and relevant learning’s for India that will provide a base to build capacity amongst the practitioners, city officials, etc.
