Modal choice in a multimodal transport system
This conference concludes the Conference of European Directors of Roads' (CEDR) Transnational Road Research Programme “User Needs in a multimodal context”, which funded the ISAAC and STTRIDE projects. The ISAAC consortium developed evidence-based recommendations to encourage a modal shift towards walking and cycling, whilst STTRIDE addresses how to use technological advances to deliver modal shifts.
The aim of the conference is to build knowledge and guidance on how to promote multimodality in the transport system. The conference will consider the following questions:
- What are transport users’ needs, and what are their motives for choosing different transport modes?
- What is the impact of transport interventions on modal shift?
The conference provides training on the new tools developed by the two projects. The STTRIDE tools help to understand the impact of new technologies, while the ISAAC tools focus on measures supporting walking and cycling and their impact on modal choice and on road safety.
Attend the conference to hear from experts in the field, including TRL, CEDR and TOI.
An evening event will take place on 8 May, which will include a panel discussion on the transformation of sustainable transport, a viewing of the film 'Why we cycle' and a discussion of the capacity to replicate the story of Amsterdam in other cities.
