Subscribe to RSS - Monitoring and evaluation

Urban mobility measures should be monitored and evaluated to understand how they work and perform. This helps cities identify problems and areas for improvement, and record elements that have been a success.

A good monitoring and evaluation system will inform project reports and provide useful data to stakeholders on the urban mobility situation in their city.

Decongesting Europe: New approaches to freeing our cities

The FLOW and TRACE projects join forces and invite you to an interactive event.
It includes a TRACE "tracking tour", training sessions, presentations, breakout
sessions, political debate, world café and awards.

Discover and discuss the technical tools and policy recommendations generated by these two projects to help fighting traffic congestion in cities. Panelists will also engage with political decision-makers about the political roots of congestion debate.

New analysis tool visualises bicycle traffic data for urban planning

English

The aim of the new Bike Citizens GPS data analysis tool is not only to find out how many people are cycling in towns and cities, but also to identify gaps in the cycle network and to optimise bike-friendly routes in cities. It provides an insight into bicycle traffic behaviour and allows for the assessment of the potential effects of future projects.

New European Commission tool analyses transport innovation effectiveness

English

The European Commission (EC) has launched a new tool for analysing transport innovation effectiveness, the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS).

TRIMIS maps and assesses technology trends and research and innovation capacities across Europe’s transport sector. At its heart sits a comprehensive and open-access database of transport projects and programmes, alongside transport technologies and innovations.

EVIDENCE Project Final Workshop

23 February, 14B Rue de La Science, Brussels

The EVIDENCE project is a strategic initiative funded by EACI to investigate the economic evidence for sustainable urban mobility measures.

This final workshop will present the findings and recommendations from the project, look at how the evidence has been used in cities and campaigns, and investigate the barriers to integration of sustainable mobility.

It will finish with a look at the gaps in the evidence, new forms of mobility to be investigated and how best to implement the evidence.

NISTO Bike PRINT - tracking and analysing cyclist data

Cycling policies and measures are a powerful instruments for enhancing sustainable urban mobility. Bike PRINT is an innovative tool that contributes to better understanding cycling in order to improve bike infrastructure, cyclist safety, policy development, communication and more cohesion between local governments and cyclists. This will lead to a modal shift from cars to bikes and sustainable infrastructure.

NISTO Evaluation Toolkit User Guide

The NISTO toolkit has been designed for transport planners, local and regional authorities, researchers and non-governmental organisations who want to appraise different options to solve a mobility-related problem in the urban or regional context.

It is particularly suited for the early assessment of alternatives when detailed data is not yet available about the impacts of the interventions. The NISTO evaluation toolkit can be used to evaluate small-scale mobility projects for sustainability and stakeholder preferences and monitor policy targets.

Background

Since late 2014, the REC has been developing and piloting on site a tool to monitor and help reduce CO2 and pollutant emissions and improve the energy efficiency of its employees’ commuting. The data it gathers (including fuel costs, savings and calories burned) feed into a daily ride-sharing platform and a website that also offers other information on public transport services, bike-to-work options and mobility planning. The technical set-up is illustrated here.

CIVITAS Training: Evaluating and upscaling urban mobility projects

Trialling innovative transport and mobility measures is a valuable way to gain an understanding of technical feasibility, user acceptance, and impact.

However, there are often challenges involved in increasing the scale of a measure and deploying it more widely.
