Carl Eppich: GrowSmart Maine 21st century transportation Forum

  1. 1. 21st Century Transportation Shared Vehicles, E-Bikes and their Implications for a Smart Growth Economy in Maine
  2. 2. Shared Vehicles (cars)
  3. 3. eBikes
  4. 4. • 2014 study A Global High Shift Scenario: Impacts and Potential for More Public Transport, Walking, and Cycling with Lower Car Use. • A global assessment of the potential for increasing travel on sustainable, efficient modes while concurrently developing cities that are far less car- dependent. Global High-Shift Scenario
  5. 5. Global High-Shift Scenario The researchers have: • Undertaken a bigger effort to collect and tabulate data on cycling and electric bicycle (e-bike) ridership around the world, finding higher ridership levels than previously estimated; • Developed better estimates of recent cycling trends by region; • Created the new High Shift Cycling (HSC) scenario for 2030 and 2050, taking into account cities that currently have high cycling levels, typical trip distances, and other factors; • Reestimated the potential impacts of high cycling and e-biking levels on energy use, CO2 emissions, and a range of cost factors.
  6. 6. • High mode share: Amsterdam Copenhagen York in the United Kingdom and many cities in India, China -- 15 % of trips— Even in the US more than 35 percent of trips <3 miles Bicycling / eBikes
  7. 7. • E-bikes are not included in mode share reporting by all but a few cities • Include increasing the range of potential travel distances • Reduce cycling effort in hilly cities, and • Provide mobility to population groups that are not entirely comfortable using bicycles Bicycling / eBikes
  8. 8. eBikes
  9. 9. PACTS Regional Bicycle Wayfinding System
