Open Source Tools for Geographic Analysis in Transport Planning

Geographic analysis has long supported transport plans that are appropriate to local contexts. Many incumbent tools of the trade are proprietary and were developed to support growth in motor traffic, limiting their utility for transport planners who …

Different People, Different Incentives? Examining the Public Acceptance of Smartphone-Based Persuasive Strategies for Sustainable Travel Using Psychographic Segmentation

The development and delivery of ICT-based persuasive strategies for the adoption of more environmental-friendly modes of transport is an emerging strategy to help tackle the problem of excessive use of individual Conventionally Fueled Vehicles …

Is the London Cycle Hire Scheme Becoming More Inclusive? An Evaluation of the Shifting Spatial Distribution of Uptake Based on 70 Million Trips

Pro-cycling interventions, and cycle hire schemes in particular, are often assumed to primarily benefit the privileged. This framing has played-out in academic research, with many papers exploring the relationship between cycling and existing …

Open Access Transport Models: A Leverage Point in Sustainable Transport Planning

A large and growing body of evidence suggests fundamental changes are needed in transport systems, to tackle issues such as air pollution, physical inactivity and climate change. Transport models can play a major role in tackling these issues through …

Methods to Prioritise Pop-up Active Transport Infrastructure

In the context of reduced public transport capacity in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments are scrambling to enable walking and cycling while adhering to physical distancing guidelines. Many pop-up options exist. Of these, road space …

Association of Prevalence of Active Transport to Work and Incidence of Myocardial Infarction: A Nationwide Ecological Study

BackgroundThere is a paucity of population-based geospatial data about the association between active transport and myocardial infarction. We investigated the association between active transport to work and incidence of myocardial …

Road Lighting Density and Brightness Linked with Increased Cycling Rates After-Dark

Cycling has a range of benefits as is recognised by national and international policies aiming to increase cycling rates. Darkness acts as a barrier to people cycling, with fewer people cycling after-dark when seasonal and time-of-day factors are …
