The purpose of the course
is to introduce extending sustainable public transportation and develop
the feasible measures for public transportation to meet the future
needs through interactive. Among the different measures for public
transportation widely used in the world, in this course, we are going to
explore two of them: BRT and Clean vehicles. Corresponding technology,
cost-efficiency issues and relevant examples are discussed.
This course consists of 6
units. It offers an overview of design of urban streets (sharing of
road space) and the design for the cycling infrastructure improving the
safety of infrastructure. We've tried to keep the course concrete and
hands-on; each unit has a homework task that involves examining and
researching your own local context or looking at examples from other
places to see how they might apply to your context.
This course aims at
presenting solutions to the main problems of city logistics: traffic
congestion, pollution and noise, labor and safety issues and, last but
not least, enhancing the quality of urban transport services for the
clients and the economy. The solutions proposed here have been described
in 'SOLUTIONS training kit- Cluster 3 City logistics' available on the
SOLUTIONS web site.
course examines different aspects of multimodal journey planning and
examples of what has already been achieved in Europe. Best practice
cases provided here will give an impression of the state-of-the-art, and
we will examine barriers that currently prevent full integration of all
modes and across all borders. In this context it must be noted that
multimodal information is only one part that makes up a fully integrated
course consists of 7 units. It offers an overview of the SUMP concept
and its benefits, describes the ever-growing importance of SUMPs around
the world, identifies some of the challenges of integrating individual
innovative mobility measures into the larger context of an SUMP and
offers suggestions to overcome those challenges. By the end of the
course, you will have gained comprehensive and structured knowledge
about the procedural elements of the SUMP cycle.
Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet in the city. Electric
vehicles (EVs) are one of the favorite options, as they produce zero
exhaust emission. This e-learning course will provide an introduction to
EVs and provide guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban
environments. Options to foster EV deployment and examples from cities
around the world are provided.
