Understanding the difference in travel patterns between docked and dockless bike-sharing systems: a case study in Nanjing, china

The co-existence of dockless and traditional docked bike-sharing systems presents new opportunities for sustainable transportation in cities all over the world, both serving door to door trips and access and egress to and from transit. To compare travel patterns of these two systems, we explored the GPS data of a dockless bike-sharing scheme and the […]

Understanding the trip and user characteristics of the combined bicycle and transit mode

Several cities around the world are facing mobility related problems such as traffic congestion and air pollution. Although limited individually, the combination of bicycle and transit offers speed and accessibility; by complementing each other’s characteristics the bicycle and transit combination can compete with automobiles. Recognising this, several studies have investigated policies that encourage integration of […]

Self driving solutions and public transport

The development of self-driving solutions is growing exponentially. Major industries are developing vehicles, sensors and mapping systems that help to achieve the goal of driverless mobility. How can we prepare the city for these self-driving solutions? And in what ways can a city benefit from these solutions? What are the possibilities and challenges of the […]

Improved public transport by data driven research

New promising Big Data sources are becoming available in the public transport industry. This data provides insights into both passenger flows and vehicle performance and is of great help to optimize public transport services. Traffic models are able to quickly process this data and to present it on a geographical layer. It enables to evaluate […]

Big data opportunities to enhance public transport

New promising Big Data sources are becoming available in the Public Transport industry, via for instance Intermodal Transport Control Systems (ITCS). This data provides insights into both passenger flows and vehicle performance and is of great help to optimize public transport services. The data enables to evaluate ridership and compare it with use of other […]
