Sharing Cities Webinar Series

Sharing Cities and CIVITAS TRACE projects have organised a joint webinar on experiences related to mobility. Both projects work with this topic from different angles, providing a good opportunity to share and learn. EUROCITIES hosted the webinar as replication lead of Sharing Cities with speakers from the Energy Agency of Plovdiv (TRACE) and CEiiA (Sharing Cities) on 2 February 2018 from 11:00 to 12:45. The webinar was on behavioural change to ensure a greater effectiveness and acceptance by citizens of new mobility measures.
 

Ina Karova, from the Energy Agency of Plovdiv, presented the TRACE project which develops ICT-based tracking tools to optimise the planning and implementation of walking and cycling policies; all tools are accompanied by campaigns for their procurement. TRACE will end in May 2018 and has therefore already produced some valuable information that will be shared with you.

The lead partner in TRACE is the Technical University of Lisboa, which can also support the city of Lisbon in implementing those new solutions.

Carolina Carli from CEiiA presented the status of mobility measures in Lisbon, one of the lighthouse cities within Sharing Cities, highlighting the use cases which aim to change behaviours.

Gender and Urban Transport

Many people recognize transport as gender neutral – though in fact, it´s not! Gender is a transversal dimension of social life and impacts travel behaviour, patterns, needs and accesses. Women and men have different pre-conditions, needs and restrictions for using transport. This has to be taken into consideration for all transport planning and projects to adequately meet the demand and to assure that transport is efficient and sustainable.

This webinar explores how gender issues pursue sustainable urban mobility in very practical terms. Participants learn about gender considerations in transport planning, design and operation and will hear about safety and security aspects in transportation.

For more information before watching, find out more on women and transport with the factsheet from the iNua series, tale a look at the SaftiPin application, or read a recent interview on women and cycling in India.

Webinar

Research conducted over the last few decades in many western countries confirms that there is a mutually reinforcing relationship between transport poverty (i.e. lack of access to both private and public mobility resources) and social exclusion (inability to fully participate in life-enhancing activities).

In these contexts, households that do not own cars are overwhelmingly concentrated in the lowest income quintiles, where approximately only half of households own cars. For low income households with cars, mobility is still reduced -- they make significantly fewer trips and travel much shorter distances than their higher-income, car-owning counterparts.

The experience of reduced mobility often means that low income households are unable to fully participate in key activities, such as employment, education, health care and food shopping. It is perhaps for these reasons that car ownership among low-income households in the UK has increased more rapidly year on year than for other income brackets. Yet this statistical trend tells us very little about the actual motivations behind why people living on or near ‘the breadline’ (i.e. in poverty) are willing to commit so much of their limited financial resources to owning and running a private vehicle. They do so even when they find it difficult to afford other basic necessities, such as food, warmth, shelter and clothing. Much of transportation policy is based on the idea that low-income people do not own cars. Yet a growing body of evidence suggests that this is no longer the case.

What does the experience of low-income car ownership mean for our work in transportation, and what lessons learned from other western countries can help guide our efforts here in Canada? Join transportation expert Karen Lucas as she explores these issues and discusses the ‘auto motives’ of low-income populations, by drawing on case study evidence from different geographical and social contexts over the last 20 yrs.

Webinar Highlights

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What social exclusion is and how it relates to transportation;
  • The various motivations behind car ownership for low income households and individuals;
  • The opportunities and challenges of car ownership for people of limited financial means; and
  • Further research and policy measures required to help address these issues.

Orchestrated mobility: Mobile app solutions for seamless travel

How can smart mobile apps prepare you for the future, create seamless passenger experiences, and provide opportunities for new sources of revenue?

In this webinar, Axon Vibe discussed how they are working with SBB and others to prepare for the future of travel. By creating seamless passenger experiences through travel assistance, multimodal connections, door to door mobility and passive ticketing, they can significantly increase passenger satisfaction. But they can also increase operational efficiency, by reducing peak loads, identify under served areas and prepare for future network expansions. And lastly, they will monetise your customer base for you by connecting them to ancillary services based on their predicted needs.

Mobility Academy

Welcome to the Urban Nodes course on how to improve the efficiency of the transport system in an urban node of the TEN-T core network!

This course consists of 4 units. It offers an overview of the urban node concept and its benefits, describes the ever-growing importance of urban nodes in the TEN-T context, looks at the methods to assess the most cost-efficient transport measures and presents four case studies and their evaluation experience. 

We have tried to keep the course concrete and hands-on; each unit has a homework task that guides you through the assessment process in your local context. This will involve examining and researching your own local context or looking at examples from other places to see how they might apply to your context.

You will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge with course participants from other urban nodes and to share ideas with them through the course forum. We (Susanne Böhler-Baedeker and Ana-Maria Baston, the course moderators) will join the discussion on the forum regularly, offering comments, questions and feedback.

SUTP Webinar

Cycling has the capability to contribute substantially to livable cities. It has seen a massive boost in popularity all over the world during the last years. This has mainly been due to grass-roots initiatives, spreading a bicycle culture to places that used to be dominated by cars - with powerful impact: The “Bike Revolution” is shaping cities with their action and pushes urban and transport planners to consider their needs in future development. This local Engagement becomes more and more important on a global agenda as well. In October, Habitat-III will take place in Quito. The New Urban Agenda (NUA), the outcome document of the conference, has the ambition to set out universal guidelines for forward-looking urban development. Hence, embedding bicycle culture in the NUA is crucial to establish and underline its importance for sustainable mobility in cities worldwide. In the webinar JP Amaral (Bike Anjo, Brazil), and Ksenia Semenova (Kyiv Cyclists’ Association, Ukraine, and vice-president of the European Cyclists Federation) highlight the experiences of the bike revolutions in their cities and countries. Furthermore, Marcio Deslandes (European Cyclists Federation) will demonstrate how the HABITAT-III process is linked to this local engagement and present their work on the role of cycling in the New Urban Agenda.
