Task 5.3: Encouraging
modal shift to walking.
Think of London’s
potential that every day, 1 million journeys could be walked in less than 10
1. Which measures
could London take to encourage a shift to walking these short distances?
Maybe intermodality could be a suitable
solution, by combining different modes of transport: walking/public transport
2. Estimate the
potential in your city: How many journeys could be made by foot or bike each
day that are currently done by motorised modes?
I think that since our modal share for
pedestrians is 64% maybe this is a realistic quantity for people going on foot.
But our modal share for cyclists is really low (much less than 1%), that is why
10-15% of car drivers would be a good result.
