Welcome to the BITS website!
Bicycles and ITS (BITS) - A new multi stakeholder project on Bicycle and ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 9% and increase bicycle use by 10% within target groups! Under the BITS project ten partners from top cycling countries (NL, DK, BE) or those about to become (UK, DE) came together in a consortium to raise awareness of best practices of “Smart Cycling”, and to provide implementers with ready-to-use information and evidence from different regions. This project is believed to be the only one of its kind in the world. The BITS project, co-funded by the North Sea Region (NSR) Programme, has a budget of 5 million of euros over 3 years (2019 to 2022). For more information, please check the about page.

To really take Smart Cycling and the use of cycling data to the next level, we are convinced that it is crucial to connect existing stakeholders and benefit from each other’s experiences, products and data. Therefore, we would like to invite you to join the BITS community – an active network of policy makers, businesses and anybody who is interested in cycling ITS and/or cycling data. The BITS community will be closely involved in the project and will be invited to BITS events, where they can meet other members of the community.
