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.

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.

Sustainable Urban Freight Transport: A Global Perspective

Life in the city relies on the smooth operation of urban logistics. Everything from retail to services, construction to waste collection rely on an efficient and reliable freight transport system. However, with the increasing pressures of urbanization, this has to be balanced with the environmental and social impacts caused by transport activity. This is the challenge of City Logistics, a field of study that has significant practical implications for the world and the cities we live in. It is not merely a question of what is involved, but what can be done about urban freight transport to improve it for the sake of economic efficiency, quality of life, and sustainability. From a systematic scientific foundation of the field, this course will take you on a journey to learn how city logistics is understood and practiced in cities around the world. Our instructors, members of a renowned global expert network, will teach you the basics of this highly complex social system. Using their experience in real-world projects, they will illustrate how the knowledge learnt in this course is applied across industry and the public sector. This course caters primarily to university students or professionals working in urban transport infrastructure planning or logistics management. Whether you are simply curious about the topic or you intend to develop a career in these fields, this course will give you the tools you need to understand the complexities of urban freight transport systems. The course emphasizes the theoretical foundation, the rigorous evaluation, and a multi-disciplinary approach to this complex area. Course participants will benefit from numerous case studies of best practice in selected cities around the world, in a variety of business settings. Our emphasis on the global perspective is particularly relevant, since an understanding of local culture and political climate is an important factor in the success of any city logistics intervention. The course will provide an avenue for students to learn from their peers about the challenges faced in their respective cities, and how to apply the principles learned to the challenges faced in their own cities.

What you'll learn:

  • To identify the main logistics challenges facing cities around the world
  • To understand the complex nature of urban freight transport systems
  • To evaluate freight traffic impacts
  • To explore the different approaches to solving urban freight transport problems
  • To identify the research methods used to develop and apply knowledge in this field
