 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The project brings together leading experts in the fields of design and urban integration, transport operation and business, with local and regional authorities and end-users organizations, which represent the economic, demographic and territorial diversity of Europe. The project starts by analysing the best and bad practices developed from current urban interchanges. Apart from the state of the practice, the case study approach includes surveys to identify the travellers’ priorities in transfer trips. All these will feed the development of an integrated model and a comprehensive set of methodological guidelines to obtain the maximum efficiency by upgrading existing urban interchanges or by building new ones. City-HUB aims to make them more accessible to all users. The approach is integrated, covering the different aspects of an urban interchange in order to increase the use of public transport, improve the efficiency and propose a new business model. The integrated model will be validated through a set of European case studies selected as demonstrators. The model and methodological guidelines will be fully exploited through a European transferability exercise and dissemination initiatives to target groups throughout Europe.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Interchanges where passengers can switch from one public transport route to another more safely, reliably and comfortably benefit the mobility needs of European society overall. An EU initiative is looking to make urban transport interchanges more efficient and sustainable.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Efficient urban networks can allow for the seamless use of different means of transport. The majority of today's urban interchanges are not optimised enough, thus failing to meet the needs and demands of modern commuters, especially women, the elderly and persons with disabilities.

To achieve effective and sustainable urban transport interchanges, the EU-funded http://www.cityhub-project.eu (CITY-HUB) project is creating solutions to maximise coordination, information systems and business models. The focus is on the design of an integrated business model that takes into account all aspects of urban interchange.

During the first reporting period, the project team evaluated present circumstances in urban interchanges, identified the main actors and their roles, and carried out stakeholder interviews and commuter surveys. It validated and tested the main factors that affect interchange, such as efficient planning and design, accessibility, convenience and safety.

Case studies identified best practices, and obstacles to and areas for improvement.

Researchers used the analysis of the current state of play and the results of the case studies as a starting point in the development of an efficient and smart design model for transport interchanges. They also assessed the operations, management, interconnectivity, information services and efficiency of urban transport interchanges.

All the outcomes will be used in the second reporting period to deliver a complete set of methodological guidelines for integrating design and management models.

By proposing solutions for sustainable planning and design, CITY-HUB intends to contribute to smarter, cleaner and safer urban transport interchanges.
