Controlling vehicle-use

Yes, we know it can be hard, but controlling vehicle–use is key to make your urban transport sustainable. And there are a lot of approaches of how you can control vehicle-use in your city: Next to controlling the vehicle-use by travel restrictions you can also try to get the private sector on board for sustainable transport in your city to benefit your citizens, for example with urban logistic distribution centres or just with corporate parking policies. Support the private sector to incentivise the commute of their workers by bike or public transport, e.g. by providing job tickets, the introduction of telework and flexible working hours as well as benefits other than a company car as a bonus to their salary. Key of controlling vehicle-use is the provision of high-performance public transport networks, for example BRT or rail systems with comfortable interchange facilities and distance-based pricing (“pay as you ride”).
