    8. 8. Theoretical Framework KRA Mobility <ul><ul><ul><li>‘ A new type of mobility’ a necessary transition from a primarily car based personal mobility in cities to a mobility based on walking and cycling, high quality public transport and less-used and cleaner passenger vehicles . (European Commission, White Paper on Transport 2011) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>‘ Smart’ urban mobility is not just technology! </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>David Banister; schizophrenic paths (2005) / sustainable mobility paradigms (2008) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Source: White paper Transport, 2011. The European Commission </li></ul>
    9. 9. Main question <ul><ul><ul><li>How do cities and urban areas in their policies for sustainable and smart urban mobility both preserve the current social and economic achievements of their mobility system as well as strive for a transition towards a mobility based on walking and cycling, high quality public transport and less-used and cleaner passenger vehicles? </li></ul></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Subthemes ‘sustainable and smart mobility’   Less / cleaner car use More use of alternative forms of transport Other, general   URBAN SPACE – use, lay out, planning Living closer to work Densification – smart growth car-free zones/development Reallocation of space; priority for public transport, cycling friendly streets, Pedestrianisation of (central) areas, liveable streets Intermodality, nodal points Park + Ride     REGULATION & PRICING Congestion charging, road pricing, environmental zones, parking policies, subsidies for cleaner vehicles Subsidies for (electric) bikes, public transport Green procurement (public transport)   PEOPLE & BEHAVIOUR Car sharing awareness-raising/education: is the car the best option for this trip? Awareness information education mobility plans Behavioural change Shared mobility clearly targeted personal information health   ICT & TECHNOLOGY Green Cars; electric, hybrid, bio-fuel etc.   Opportunities to enhance use: ITS, real-time information, integrated journey planners, apps for public transport, walking and cycling ICT possibilities for working at home, shopping on the internet etc.
