GECKO webinars

This webinar from the GECKO project looked at e-scooter regulation, with presentations by Marco Lietz from Circ, providing the operator perspective, and Michael Glotz-Richter from the City of Bremen, providing the city perspective. Both points of view highlighted the mutual importance of open dialogue between cities and e-scooter operators to determine what is feasible and how e-scooters can provide a solution for local issues.

The presentation from Marco Lietz addressed how the industry has evolved as both the number of riders and the number of cities with e-scooters have expanded. A focus on safety, harmony with other modes, and integration with local infrastructure are important factors to ensuring the sustainability of e-scooters in cities.

Michael’s presentation of Bremen’s thoroughly-considered approach to the introduction of e-scooters to the city indicates that regulations such as a limited number of scooters, no-parking zones, and no-riding zones are useful, and that prior cycle-friendliness in a city helps facilitate a smooth integration of these new two-wheeled vehicles.

Based on the high level of interest and number of questions and comments from the audience, it is clear that the discussion of e-scooter regulations is far from over.

CIVITAS webinars

In this webinar, the key components of the CIVITAS evaluation process are discussed. Dirk Engels, Transport and Mobility Leuven, presents the key elements of this innovative approach.

This centres on conducting both process and impact evaluations. By doing so, it is possible to understand the barriers to and drivers of a measure's implementation, as well as the effect that it has.

Through its six impact categories, the CIVITAS approach tells the full story of mobility measures, one that extends beyond pure facts and figures.

Meeting of the Minds

Parking is a particularly tough issue for cities across the globe. Municipalities, both large and small, face the challenge of balancing the needs of a range of stakeholders - residents, tourists, pedestrians, businesses, schools, and others - who all have different parking demands. The city of Bad Hersfeld, Germany, sought to change how it handles traffic for both residents and visitors, particularly during special events.

A small city of approximately 30,000 just outside of Frankurt, Bad Hersfield is well known for its festivals, particularly the Bad Hersfelder Festspiele. The city's Mayor, Thomas Fehling, implemented a more streamlined approach to parking management with the help of smart parking IoT solutions.

In this webinar, Mayor Fehling will share how the city deployed this new technology, which reduced the amount of time drivers searched for parking, lessened congestion on the roadways, lowered emissions, and increased efficiencies across its open-air parking lots. He will be joined by Thomas Hohenacker, Cleverciti Systems CEO, who will share some of his key insights from his work deploying parking solutions across cities in the Middle East, Europe and the US.Less

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.
