Cycle Highway Innovation for transport and planning
The livability of cities and attractiveness of our environment can be improved by smarter choices for mobility products and travel modes.
A change from current car-dependent lifestyles towards the use of healthier and less polluted transport modes, such as cycling, is needed. With awareness campaigns, cycling facilities and cycle infrastructure, the use of the bicycle will be stimulated.
But which campaigns are effective? Can we stimulate cycling by adding cycling facilities along the cycle path? How can we design the best cycle infrastructure for a region? And what impact does good cycle infrastructure have on the increase of cycling? In the CHIPS (Cycle Highway Innovation for smarter People transport and Spatial planning) project we demonstrate that, together with our partners, especially with the growing number of e-bikes, cycle highway innovation can effectively get commuters out of their cars.
