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.

Bicycles are an increasingly popular mode of transport in cities around the developing and developed world alike. However, many cities do not have sufficient technical tools or knowledge to develop comprehensive plans to increase safety and convenience for users of this vehicle. However, many kilometres of cycling infrastructure have been added to cities (not only) in European and Latin American cities, turning those cities from pioneers in cycling development in their countries into true cycling cities. In this webinar, Alejandra Leal (México City), Georgios Kontos (Regional Planning authority region Frankfurt-RheinMain), Carlos Pardo (Bogotá) present different approaches to comprehensively develop cycling as a mode of transport. Subsequently, we will discuss the key elements of cycle-inclusive planning and implementation.

CIVITAS

Speaker: Thomas Stokell (Love to Ride): How we can apply behaviour change theory to get more people riding bicycles? Thomas Stokell is social marketer with more than 12 years’ experience designing behavior change programs specifically to promote cycling. He ran National Bike Week in New Zealand for 5 years before moving to the UK in 2007 where he established Love to Ride - the online platform that encourages more people to ride bicycles. Thomas will present their behaviour change framework and describe how cities and advocacy groups can apply a number of different behaviour change theories to encourage cycling. A description of how the Love to Ride online platform has been designed to incorporate behaviour change theory will also be given along with a case study of the Workplace Cycle Challenge programme.

CIVITAS

When we want to change behaviour, targeted messages that appeal to the individual will have more effect than a one-fits-all approach. In this webinar, we will give a brief overview of the benefits of and techniques for setting up targeted campaigns for specific segments of people. The city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, will present their experiences with their successful campaign developed within the SEGMENT project. SEGMENT experimented with two types of segmentation techniques: (1) Targeting consumers undergoing ‘life change moments’ which causes them to question and reconsider their travel habits. (2) Clustering these consumers (using detailed questionnaires) into relatively homogenous groups (in terms of their attitudes towards car use, cycling, electric vehicles or wider issues such as climate change and health etc.) and then devising bespoke campaigns.

This webinar will discuss the tools and means for disseminating the idea of Sustainable Urban Mobility to the general public. In the webinar we will also focus on the essential elements for changing the perception of mass transit in people’s minds. Various examples from different cities will be used as a means for expressing the idea across.

Eurotransport webinars

This webinar discusses the general principles involved in counting people and provide some examples of how counting people has brought benefits to both customers and service companies.

Eurotech has over 10 years of experience in providing people counting devices for a wide variety of applications all over the world. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the motivation and benefits of counting people and highlight typical and unusual applications.

Knowing how many people are in, have entered or have used a facility is interesting to most organisations and innovative companies can now transform this information into knowledge that improves their competitive advantage.

The ability to combine these people counts with other relevant information enriches knowledge allowing better decisions to be made. Optimisation of services based on real usage, whether that is bus routes or cleaning rotas, can improve customer satisfaction and reduce cost.

Having both real time access to this information and historical trend analysis allows further enhancements with dynamic updates that can be delivered to personnel and customers. Imagine being able to advise your customers that the next train to London is full, but the one five minutes later is empty; better still send them a discount voucher for the coffee shop while they wait if a service is oversubscribed. Alternatively, knowing that a large number of people have just entered a department within a retail store would allow the manager to deploy more staff to serve them; thus increasing sales and customer satisfaction without hiring more staff. The real time effect of merchandising changes or in store promotions can also be monitored and adjusted accordingly.

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.

The material is an introduction to the topic of sustainable mobility campaigns. The module aims to assist transport practitioners beginning sustainable mobility campaigns. Therefore it is designed mainly to set up and carry out small campaigns. Nonetheless, this material also gives information on planning and implementing as well as best practise information for large scale campaigns.
