Cities.multimodal – urban transport system in transition towards low carbon mobility
Cities.multimodal comprises 3 thematic work packages which facilitate the planning and implementation of the following activities:
MULTIMODAL CITY QUARTERS – provide facilities
Partner cities choose a pilot area for their activities, adapt the concept of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) to suit city quarters and implement different measures:
MOBILITY POINTS make multimodal transport visible in public space and facilitate the use of sustainable transport modes and connections between them. IT SOLUTIONS for individual travel planning will improve accessibility of sustainable transport modes through smartphone applications. CAMPAIGNS will raise awareness for the advantages of multimodal travel. A PLANNERS’ HANDBOOK will be the main output to ensure capacity building in cities beyond the project consortium.
MOBILITY MANAGEMENT – change behaviour
The project partners develop a general mobility management concept to change mobility behaviour of people. The main output will be a TOOLBOX FOR MOBILITY MANAGEMENT. This contains measures for mobility management in SCHOOLS and KINDERGARDENS, COMPANIES and for INNER-CITY INVESTORS and will be applied by the project partners.
A focus during planning and implementation of activities in teh pilot area is put on involving citizens from teh very start. The cities are testing at least 2 ( for them) new and innovative methods and evaluate them afterwards. Their experience, tips and tricks on different involvement methods will feed into a CITIZEN INVOLVEMENT GUIDE, that is part of the PLANNERS HANDBOOK.
