Changing the face of the city – how ITS and cycling combine for future mobility
Cycling and new technologies such as e-bikes, shared bikes and cargo bikes have been star performers in the recovery from the COVID pandemic and identified as key tool in the greening of urban mobility. Over €1 billion has already been pledged for new cycling measures in Europe since March.
However, this session is about more than cycling growth. It is a case study and an inspiration for ITS as a catalyst for city change. It brings together leaders who are using ITS tools to remodel the physical space in the city for more and safer cycling. It demonstrates that the cycling sector is using ITS as a basis for a new collaborative approach to innovation, building new business models with partners such as multi-modal transport operations, ITS partners, financial services and governments. And at a physical level the tools and data created are allowing cities to remodel themselves at the human scale.
The presentations will conclude with the introduction of a proposed framework for Cycling and ITS in Europe which could link the whole sector in a common roadmap for future implementation.
