Summary

The mission of the CIVITAS WIKI project was to provide information on clean urban transport and the CIVITAS Initiative to EU city planners, decision-makers and citizens. With its policy documents, WIKI wants to inform people in cities about a number of topics that currently play an important role in urban mobility.

This final policy analysis focuses on the topic of cycling in the city. Over 70% of all Europeans live in cities and cities are becoming increasingly congested. Citizens suffer from poor air quality and noise, which makes the cities less liveable. This document provides information about measures that can be taken in order to increase the use of cycling as a transport mode in the urban environment. The authors are aware of the fact that cities differ in their infrastructural developments. The ease of implementing the measures might therefore differ from one city to another.
