Access To Evidence (351)

Our panel of experts has reviewed the evidence on 22 areas of sustainable urban mobility. Select your topic of interest in the box above to see the material available and then click through to access the evidence. Some material is located on subscription or pay-per-view websites, but you should expect to reach an abstract describing the content. Where available, free to access versions have been chosen.

For those people who do not have access to subscription sites hosting academic material, we would suggest visiting the website (or variant for your country), and searching for a particular article(s). This will sometimes provide a link to a pre-publication copy, or institutional copy of the same material.

While these links all worked when the database was created we cannot guarantee they will always work. In some cases links may bring you to a website where you will have to do a search for the material.

Evaluation report of a CIVITAS initiative for more sustainable urban transport on the island of Madeira.

Report of the findings of a US Dept of transport sponsored study into bike-bus integration primarily undertaken in Florida, USA. The study set out to explore return on investment for a range of solutions (both on and off bus) that would improve access to bus services for cycle users

Article presenting the results of an employer survey of 25 organisations, showing how the motivations for travel plans have changed over time, and what they are anticipated to be in the future. Factors are identified that have led to a travel plan progressing from a reactive (e.g. a planning consent), to a proactive state, whereby the travel plan starts to deliver business objectives, and become embedded in organisations.

A surprising amount of traffic isn't caused by people who are on their way to somewhere. Rather it is caused by people who are already arrived. Our streets are congested, in part, by people who have gotten where they want but are cruising around looking for a place to park.

The decision by the Stockholm City Council and the Swedish Riksdag to carry out a congestion tax trial in the inner city of Stockholm represented a major challenge to SL. The assignment that SL received from the Government in the summer of 2004 was to match in the best possible way the expected travel demand during the trial and to achieve this within a framework of an extremely short planning period of about one year. This resulted in the largest public transport investment since the underground was introduced in the fifties.

Study comparing a cost–benefit analysis (CBA—favoured by transport economists) alongside a cost–utility analysis (CUA—favoured by health economists) of mandatory 20 mph zones, providing a unique opportunity to compare assumptions and results.

Report on the relationship between the travel mode of shoppers in two areas of Bristol (UK), and the perceptions of retailers of how their customers had travelled. Results suggest that the importance of car-borne customers is over-estimated by retailers.

Evaluation of Brisbane’s first cycle centre to gauge its effectiveness as a transport demand management measure. Financial cost benefit applied to 2009 data from the centre which provided parking, showering and changing facilities and bike maintenance.
