ELIPTIC Webinar Series

Simulation tools help public authorities in the planning of e-bus systems and electrification of their fleets. They are an integral part of the work in the use cases of Pillar A “Safe integration of e-Buses using existing electric public transport infrastructure” of the ELIPTIC project. After a short introduction into the work of the ELIPTIC project and the use cases related to the webinar’s topic, the presenters from the research organisations RWTH Aachen, Fraunhofer IVI and Vrije Universiteit Brussel showed different aspects of simulation that help in the planning of e-buses. This included the presentation of a software-based approach to find the optimal technical configuration for the use of e-buses on different routes by Fabian Meishner, RWTH Aachen. These calculations are a helpful tool to build sound business cases for the long-term use of electric bus systems. An example was also given of the results of a vehicle simulation-based feasibility study of converting a Diesel bus line with hybrid trolleybuses (by extending the existing trolleybus line) in a rural area in the East of Germany (Dr.-Ing Thoralf Knote, Fraunhofer IVI). Hybrid trolleybuses have an on-board energy storage which enables a fully electric operation without catenaries. Finally, the webinar addressed design questions and charging strategies for e-buses, exemplified in the case of Brussels (Prof. Dr. Omar Hegazy, Vrije Universiteit Brussel).

    FLOW

    This EU-funded mobility project offers training courses to help companies develop innovative solutions that can reduce congestion in cities. The FLOW project aims to tackle urban congestion by developing walking and cycling measures. Its training courses are for companies, such as app developers and consultancies, that provide products and services related to urban transport, urban planning, walking and cycling and/or reducing urban road congestion. The training consists of interactive e-learning modules and webinars that introduce new products developed by FLOW partners, such as software that analyses traffic, provides forecasts, and manages data from geographic information systems. Companies that take part in the training will feature in an online catalogue that FLOW will present to European local authorities - opening doors to new contacts and potential clients.

    Urban Nodes

    The webinar is organised in the framework of the study “Improving the efficiency of the transport system in urban nodes of the TEN-T core network”, which was carried out on behalf of DG MOVE. The 88 urban nodes are often the starting point or the final destination ("first” and “last mile") for passengers and freight moving. From the TEN-T perspective, the main aim is to remove urban bottlenecks and missing physical, technical and organisational links on the infrastructure. The main challenge for urban nodes is to improve multi-modal connections and at the same time consider connections with local and regional transport to ensure smooth first and last miles in passengers’ and freight transport. The new TEN-T policy, formulated in the TEN-T Guidelines (2013), is no longer perceived as merely a funding instrument for major infrastructure projects, but a policy which takes the network holistic planning approach as the main pillar.

    Eurotransport webinars

    Fare collection systems are a hot topic in the transit industry, due to a number of new and exciting technologies emerging and gaining adoption. However, these changes also make it harder to predict the future and get a good grasp on where the industry is heading.

    In this webinar our expert panel reviewed the range of ticketing trends taking place and we heard first hand from transport operators tackling these issues head on.

    • Is the Future of Ticketing Account Based?
    • Fare Collection Trends: Issued Ticked Media vs Passenger Owned (BYOT)
    • EMV Contactless vs Mobile Ticketing: Which One is Best?
    • Mobile Ticketing Technologies: Barcode, vs SMS, vs NFC, vs Bluetooth.
    • Mobile First and Mobile Ticketing 2.0
    • Preston Bus Case Study: Speeding up Bus Services by 9 Seconds per Passenger
    • Keolis Case Study: Seamless door-to-door journeys

    Webinar

    The fast development of technologies creates many challenges for traditional public procurement, and in many cases the desired innovative solutions cannot be adopted by using a traditional procurement strategy. The EU public procurement directives, e.g. DIRECTIVE 2014/24/EU, provide the legal framework for the utilisation of innovation procurement approaches. This webinar aims to share knowledge and good practices on smart procurement in the transport sector and discuss challenges public procurers and industry face.

    Eurotransport webinars

    Technology developments make possible a new generation of on-demand / flexible public transport services, more cost-effective and better tailored to market circumstances than prior offerings. Such services targeted at the general public — for both first mile / last mile access and local circulation purposes — have been deployed in 22 service zones by the Denver transit agency in the largest implementation to date in the USA. The technology platform for managing these services, MobilityDR, is key to this outcome.

    In this webinar, DemandTrans Solutions and its partners show how an appropriate technology platform in combination with innovative service concepts provides regional transit authorities with the ability to configure, control, and operate cost-effective DRT / flexible transit services.

    CIVITAS

    Following the recent call for a cycling strategy from the Luxembourg Presidency of the European Council, the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions, a new policy report prepared by the European Transport Safety Council and the intense advocacy work done by the European Cycling Federation, the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Safety and Security gave its contribution to the policy development and kept CIVITAS cities informed and actively involved in this very important topic. This webinar's main objective was to present the new policy developments in cycling and cycling safety and the ongoing actions as well as allowing the thematic group members and the overall CIVITAS community to bring their concrete local contributions and experiences on board. It contained two presentations (1) Safe Cycling - How Europe Can Contribute? (2) Why do cyclists feel safe in Gdansk?

    CIVITAS essentials

    When considering the quality of urban mobility decisions, most CIVITAS cities involve a wide range of stakeholders in the measure development process. Through consultations, local communities are empowered and get a sense of ownership of results. At the same time, the level of interaction between decision makers and the target of their decisions is substantially increased, thus enhancing measure completeness, giving stakeholders a better understanding of the planned mobility measures and reducing later opposition to urban mobility. Involving the public has added value, but where to start? In this e-course we explain what public involvement is and why you should involve the public and stakeholders. Step by step, we show you an approach for public participation, including evaluation. After completing this e-course, you will be able to design your own participation process.
    E-course was developed in cooperation with Mobiel 21.

    SUTP Webinar

    Cycling has the capability to contribute substantially to livable cities. It has seen a massive boost in popularity all over the world during the last years. This has mainly been due to grass-roots initiatives, spreading a bicycle culture to places that used to be dominated by cars - with powerful impact: The “Bike Revolution” is shaping cities with their action and pushes urban and transport planners to consider their needs in future development. This local Engagement becomes more and more important on a global agenda as well. In October, Habitat-III will take place in Quito. The New Urban Agenda (NUA), the outcome document of the conference, has the ambition to set out universal guidelines for forward-looking urban development. Hence, embedding bicycle culture in the NUA is crucial to establish and underline its importance for sustainable mobility in cities worldwide. In the webinar JP Amaral (Bike Anjo, Brazil), and Ksenia Semenova (Kyiv Cyclists’ Association, Ukraine, and vice-president of the European Cyclists Federation) highlight the experiences of the bike revolutions in their cities and countries. Furthermore, Marcio Deslandes (European Cyclists Federation) will demonstrate how the HABITAT-III process is linked to this local engagement and present their work on the role of cycling in the New Urban Agenda.
