Description

Smart means that innovative technologies were used (for example ICT and GPS based), and those smart ways to stimulate people to change behavior or adopt technologies were developed and evaluated. The project considered road transport, cycling and walking, and public transport. It looked at a broad range of tools, including electronic fare cards, real-time public transport information, automated tracking of vehicles, and data from innovative pricing and rewarding experiments. The project brought together research groups, local authorities and case studies from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Vienna.

Objective

The overall objective of this project was  the development, implementation and evaluation of innovative tools, policy measures and strategies for achieving a sustainable, efficient urban transport system, focusing on both “technology” and “behaviour”. 

The project has designed and implemented innovative measures for sustainable urban transport, drawn from existing initiatives with the same objective, and developed and estimated innovative behavioural models to estimate the impacts and potential.

The project developed innovative measures,  implemented these, and developed innovative models of transport behaviour and estimated these using the date acquired, and has drawn generalizable policy lessons.
