Podcast Mobility Innovators: Human-centered design for Smart Public Transport

Technology and New mobility are reshaping urban transportation in cities. Human-centric design is key to the quality of life in cities, putting people at the heart of urban transport planning. All stakeholders, including academia, will play a key role to reshape the future of mobility.

Potential of on-demand services for urban travel (Flex-OV)

On-demand mobility services are promising to revolutionise urban travel, but preliminary studies are showing that they may actually increase the total vehicle miles travelled, thereby worsening road congestion in cities. In this study, we assess the demand for on-demand mobility services in urban areas,using a stated preference survey, to understand the potential impact of introducing on-demand services on the current modal split. The survey was carried out in the Netherlands and offered respondents a choice between bike, car, public transport and on-demand services. 1,063 valid responses are analysed with a multinomial logit and a latent class choice model. By means of the latter, we uncover four distinctive groups of travellers based on the observed choice behaviour. The majority of the sample (55%) are avid cyclists and do not see on-demand mobility as an alternative for making urban trips. Two classes (27% and 9% of the sample) would potentially use on-demand services: the former is fairly timesensitive and would thus use on-demand service if they were sufficiently fast. The latter class however is highly cost-sensitive, and would therefore use on-demand mobility primarily if it is cheap. The fourth class (9%) shows very limited potential for using on-demand services.

‘Hubs, van belofte naar werkelijkheid’

Zijn hubs dé toekomst in de mobiliteit? Is het wel echt zo’n slimme oplossing zoals we de laatste tijd vaak horen, of is het eigenlijk alleen maar een hype? Hierover schreven Iris van Gerrevink, Roderick Tingen, Kees van Son (AT Osborne) en Niels van Oort (TU Delft) recent een artikel voor VNG Magazine en een vierdelige blogserie. Iedere blog focust op een ander type hub en geeft aanbevelingen aan beleidsmakers over hoe ze kunnen werken aan het waarmaken van de beloftes:

Ex-post evaluatie van mobiliteitshubs: Een kwalitatieve studie naar de factoren die het gebruik en de effecten van mobiliteitshubs beïnvloeden

Mobiliteitshubs zijn een veelbelovend concept dat steeds meer aandacht krijgt. Zo zijn er in de afgelopen twee jaar ongeveer 150 buurtmobiliteitshubs geopend in Nederland. Buurtmobiliteitshubs, een plek waar een aantal verschillende (deel)voertuigen worden aangeboden, worden gezien als een ondersteuner en versterker van deelmobiliteit. Zo kunnen deelmobiliteit en mobiliteitshubs aantrekkelijke alternatieven bieden voor privé voertuigen en bijdragen aan gemeentelijke beleidsdoelen. Vier grote thema’s zijn hierin te onderscheiden. Meestal gaat het over een verbetering in de openbare ruimte, duurzaamheidsdoelstellingen, reductie van privéauto’s en ambities wat betreft bereikbaarheid.

Deelvervoer in de provincie Utrecht: het potentieel gebruik in combinatie met OV.

De provincie Utrecht wil de verwachte reizigersgroei in het OV het hoofd bieden door in te zetten op meer kwaliteit voor de reiziger, duurzame en innovatieve mobiliteits-oplossingen en per gebied te kiezen voor de meest geschikte combinatie van vervoerwijzen. Hierbij past dit gebruikersonderzoek naar hoe lokaal OV (stad- en streekvervoer met bussen en trams) en deelmobiliteit in het voor- en natransport elkaar kunnen versterken. Dit sluit aan op het wetenschappelijk kennishiaat; er is helaas nog weinig bekend over het gebruik van deelvervoer in multi-modale ketens.

Standing E-Scooters, what to expect?

Standing E-scooters are an emerging mode of transport, for which shared e-scooter-suppliers claim that  it is part of the solution for a sustainable and liveable city. However, little is known about the impact of these vehicles that can be expected when e-scooters are launched. In this paper we show the results of a research exploring impacts and supporting implementation in the Netherlands, also useful for other cities and countries that consider introduction of e-scooters.

The future of public transport in the era of emerging modes

Due to societal and technological trends and developments, new modes (will) emerge. In this workshop at the Urbanism Next Europe conference, Maaike Snelder (TNO/TU Delft), Maria Alonso-Gonzalez (KiM) and Niels van Oort (TUDelft) shared their research findings about on-demand pooled services, autonomous shuttles and share bicycles and discussed about their contribution to the future of public transport.

Workshop Future of Public Transport @Forum ISTS

Due to societal and technological trends, our mobility system and patterns might change. New modes are entering (and leaving) the market, while conventional modes are improved. In this workshop we looked to the future of public transport from the perspective of authorities and operators. The city of The Hague and the Dutch railways (NS) shared their visions on the public transport of the future.

Travellers’ preferences towards existing and emerging means of access/egress transport

This research elaborates on access/egress transport in further detail and aims to provide insights in the preferences of travellers for existing and new means of access/egress transport such as shared vehicles and on-demand ride services. In this research, a stated preference experiment was performed with Dutch train travellers. In addition to the modal preferences, the expected impacts on land use near train station were assessed.

Podcast: Bicycle+transit mode

The bicycle+transit combination has been a growing mode for years now. It could offer the best of both worlds, if it is well designed with an integrated perspective. In this Dutch Cycling Embassy podcast with Geert Kloppenburg and Chris Bruntlet, we discuss about the opportunities and challenges regarding shared bicycle systems.
