We will celebrate World Bicycle Day on June 3 2018!

The international community decided to do so after the World Cycling Alliance (WCA) and the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) have campaigned for its establishment since 2016.

193 member states adopted the resolution by consensus to call attention on bicycles and their important role in terms of a global development strategy. Bicycles are beneficial for the global society because cycling is socially, economically and environmentally profitable. Furthermore, riding a bike is a great way to improve one’s own health.

Hence, numerous development policies and programmes should include bicycles as an important and sustainable mean of transport. As a demonstration that cycling directly relates to 12 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in 2015 the ECF published a paper on “Cycling Delivers on the Global Goals!”.

By adapting the resolution and declaring 3rd June as the World Bicycle Day, the UN recognised the relevance cycling plays for a more sustainable world as well as the positive effect it has on the environment and on meeting the SDGs.

Learn more about cycling as a comprehensive solution to mobility challenges in our iNUA #2: Solution: Cycling implementation guide. Visit also our webpage where you can find even more information on the topics Walking and Cycling.

Discover the power of GPS Technology for Demand Data Collection!

On occasion of the upcoming 9th World Urban Forum (WUF9) in Kuala Lumpur/Malaysia, we are happy to launch the SUTP Technical Document #17: “Using GPS Technology for Demand Data Collection”.

Travel demand data is a necessary basis for urban mobility planning, but especially in developing and emerging economies data availability is often weak or non-existing. The Global Positioning System (GPS) technology offers a cheap alternative for data collection to traditional diary or survey methods. This document elaborates on advantages and disadvantages of the approach. Also different aspects of the post-processing of GPS data in order to determine trips, mode choice and trip purposes are discussed. Authors are Jakob Baum, currently advisor at GIZ in Jordan, with a background in data-enabled mobility consultancy, and Enrico Howe, mobility researcher and consultant at the Innovation Centre for Mobility and Societal Change (InnoZ) with one of his foci being on smartphone based mobility survey.
