STARS project (Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition for Schools) aims to increase the number of pupils cycling to and from school, and mark a positive change in the way they travel daily instead of being driven by car.
SWITCH uses information and communication technologies (ICT), and personalised travel planning advice supported by strong health arguments to encourage people in a period of life change to switch from short car journeys to more walking and cycling. The project supports cities in developing and implementing local campaigns to reduce motorised traffic and CO2 levels.
MOBI project (ProMOting Smart MoBIlity to Employees) is encouraging employers and their employees to use energy efficient and sustainable transport modes for their commute and business travel journeys. The project will launch an awardwinning sustainable mobility online game originating from the Netherlands.
CHAMP project has helped cities implement a series of innovative cycling measures, and has outlined a set of policy recommendations that can be adopted by other cities with cycling ambitions. Measures that have been implemented in CHAMP cities include route-based cycling promotion, creative bike parking solutions, bicycle accounts, innovative awareness-raising and marketing campaigns for different target groups, and user-involvement strategies. The project ended in September 2014.
SUPERHUB project (SUstainable and PERsuasive Human Users moBility in future cities) provides a user-centric, integrated approach to multi-modal smart metropolitan mobility systems. The project involves designing and testing an open platform able to combine all mobility offers.
PASTA focuses on the systematic promotion and facilitation of active travel (i.e. walking, cycling, and public transport use) as an innovative approach to insert physical activity into individuals’ everyday lives. A longitudinal study will be conducted across 7 cities to evaluate the ongoing active travel initiatives to better understand correlates of active travel and in particular their effects on overall physical activity, injury risk and exposure to air pollution. Based on the study findings, existing research, and the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Health Economic Assessment Tool for walking and cycling (HEAT) an improved tool for health impact assessment of active travel will be develop.
VELOCITTA is a project using segmentation techniques and adoption of the most effective operational solutions to improve usage of Bicycle Share Systems.
BiTiBi (Bike Train Bike) is an innovative, three-year project co-funded by the European Union aimed at improving the livability of European cities and improving the energy efficiency of transport. Combining the two most energy efficient modes of transportation, the bicycle and the train, provides a seamless door-to-door transport connection.
