  • Interface for Cycling Expertise - Cycling as the catalyst for more human and sustainable transport
    term program to make a city cycling friendly cannot do without that So cycling becomes a feasible subject for donor money if this is needed If cycling is valued as a zero emission mode of transport these investments allow also for an appeal on carbon funding UNEP has set up a campaign in Africa to allocate 10 of road investments for safe mobility by cycling and walking The second approach demands that investments for transport accommodate safe cycling The rule should be that all transport investments should take into account the requirements for cycling and walking A right approach for integration is very cost beneficial the performance of mobility will improve with the same volume of investments For metro pole cities the combination of public transport and cycling is a strong asset for donor and carbon funding for sustainable transport policies Safe feeder routes and easy and safe bicycle parking facilities at bus and rail stations make bus and rail systems much stronger Bicycle rent facilities are as important to facilitate an efficient door to door transport The Velib in Paris became famous worldwide The Dutch public bike system is oriented on chain mobility and organised by the Dutch railways 40 of all train passengers arrive at railway stations on their bike and they together make 1 million rides per year on a public bike from their next train station to arrive at their final destination Benefits Cities in Western Europe that are cycling friendly show that congestion and safety problems vanish TRIPP IIT Delhi found confirmation in India through simulation studies If car use is restricted in favour of other modes the whole traffic system is better off The Netherlands faces a lot of congestion on their roads but this is only the case outside urban areas When the Netherlands started to invest in cycling facilities the downward trend in cycling changed into an upward trend The absolute number of cycling fatalities reduced notwithstanding the growth of traffic But on the whole road safety standards improved A study in Denmark comparing cities showed a perfect correlation between the share of cycling and road safety of cycling Better planning higher use and more safety interact The social benefits of cycling have not been studied very well There is a paradox inherent in cycling promotion regarding the social benefits Cycling supports very significantly the livelihood of poor people Just an example home care workers in Cape Town and housekeeping woman in Delhi doubled their income when they could go by bike to deliver their services But to make cycling a full fledged mode of transport the bicycle should not be linked only to the poor On the contrary it should get rid of the status as a vehicle only for the poor as is the case in developing countries When middle and higher income people ride a bicycle too they create another status of cycling Still the social and economic benefits can be highlighted much more than nowadays People are stuck imprisoned to their neighbourhoods said minister of transport in the Western Cape Tasneem Essop in 2003 Children are deprived from many development and growth opportunities when they are not allowed to go somewhere independently and to play in the public domain Social participation is so much easier with a bicycle And a critical mass of cycling make areas much more safe Enrique Penalosa former mayor of Bogotá said We have to make the public space dangerous for criminals to operate Traffic related air pollution causes an equal volume of premature deaths as road safety does and the lack of physical exercise due to the use of motorized vehicles instead of walking and cycling has an impact on health which is even greater than the impact of road safety or pollution The global financial crises energy crises and the protection of the climate all direct to an important role of cycling in our transport system Investing in sustainable modes of transport saves lots of investments and enables spatial planning that avoids a substantial amount of mobility needs The climate agenda cannot do without a fundamental transformation in transport policy and the partnership for Sustainable Low Carbon Transport claims that AVOIDance of km s travel and a SHIFT to sustainable transport are as important as technical IMPROVEments Indicator development for impact assessments Traditionally the benefits of improving transport infrastructure has been measured by performance criteria for vehicles like improved connection travel time speeds and fuel savings The cost specifications are limited to construction ongoing operations and maintenance This provides only a limited picture on real impacts The performance criteria are to a great extent based on and applied to motorized traffic I CE uses the travel transport and traffic market model to better understand travel behaviour and analyze policy options to optimize the benefits for people and society The challenge for transport and spatial planners is to affect travel behaviour to optimize social and economic well being and control negative aspects like accidents livability air quality and emissions that induce climate change I CE developed in two projects for UNEP and the Global Road Safety Facility at the World Bank directions to find alternative indicators for accessibility safety and sustainability For accessibility the common indicators are defined in terms of speed of motorised vehicles and vehicles flow per hour resp delays We propose number of destinations within reach for persons given the access to transport modes based on travel times For road safety most common indicators regard fatalities and injuries per km We propose per 100 000 people For the environment common indicators are pollutants per vehicle or passenger km whereas we propose pollutants by 100 000 people or percentage of trips for which people have the option to choose for a sustainable mode of transport Interfacing cycling expertise Road users decision makers and professionals do have a different perspective on traffic and mobility and a different framework to assess the quality of provisions Looking for the pioneers in cycling policies we
