Bristol (UK): how public health specialists can change transport planning

To improve the health of its residents and initiate the changes required to do so, NHS Bristol employed a number of public health experts and developed the influencing skills of such staff at various levels of local government through co-located posts.

Since their appointment in 2008 by NHS Bristol and Bristol City Council's (BCC) Director of Public Health, the expert in public health and transport planning has helped ingrain a public health perspective into urban transport planning, leading to substantial positive health impacts.

How a transport plan in London is tackling public health issues (UK)

In response to public health challenges facing the city, London introduced a Transport Action Plan in 2014.  Developed by a Public Health Consultant working in Transport for London (TfL), the city's transport authority, it outlines transport-related measures for improving the health of Londoners. The Plan sets out 10 action points related to TfL's 'business as usual' processes that, if undertaken, should help TfL respond to public health challenges. By making the links between transport and health explicit, the Plan makes a clear contribution to public health.

Developing effective packages of measures for SUMPs: Budapest (Hungary)

When selecting the measures to be included in its SUMP, Budapest's transport operator, Budapesti Közlekedési Központ (BKK), tested out a number of new approaches in the processes involved in making the decisions. Various parties were consulted at national and international level, whilst best practice examples were sought from other European cities. Software was then used to evaluate the choices made. The Balázs Mór Plan (BMT) is Budapest's first transport development strategy based on SUMP methodology, and its integrated approach places the focus on people and the environment.

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 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.
