Towards more sustainable urban transport

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific

Abstract

There are varios challenges to be won for the sustainable transport in cities, such as ever-growing congestion, no more space for new routes, and hence the need to optimizing the use of current infrastructure. In addition, people are wasting their time in congestions. Moreover, alternative (public, non-motorized) transport should be easier to use & and more attractive. The environmental quality, CO2 & energy efficiency targets are tightening year by year. Traffic safety, especially for vulnerable road users, is still not perfect.
