Access To Evidence (351)

Our panel of experts has reviewed the evidence on 22 areas of sustainable urban mobility. Select your topic of interest in the box above to see the material available and then click through to access the evidence. Some material is located on subscription or pay-per-view websites, but you should expect to reach an abstract describing the content. Where available, free to access versions have been chosen.

For those people who do not have access to subscription sites hosting academic material, we would suggest visiting the website (or variant for your country), and searching for a particular article(s). This will sometimes provide a link to a pre-publication copy, or institutional copy of the same material.

While these links all worked when the database was created we cannot guarantee they will always work. In some cases links may bring you to a website where you will have to do a search for the material.

Comparative analysis of city logistics approaches used in Italy, with a case study (including cost-benefit analysis) from the city of Padua.

This paper reports the results of an analysis of concessionary travel in England, Scotland and Wales, by drawing on data from the annual English National Travel Survey and other sources. It explores usage and pass holding patterns as well as attempting to model the impacts on travel of the scheme

This guidance document produced by the UK Commission for Integrated Transport is designed to assist promoters of mass transit systems to select the most suitable, affordable and cost-effective technology to meet their needs and objectives, and to do so quickly and at reasonable cost.

Journal article looking to identify the contributions of various factors to levels of cycle use in the Netherlands. Uses statistical modelling of aggregate data drawing on year 2000 modal shares in 103 municipalities in that country, and considers a wide range of policy and background factors that might influence levels.

This paper uses the findings of a surveys conducted in nine rail-based P&Rs located around the cities of Rotterdam and The Hague in the Netherlands in order to get an overview of the impacts in terms of the vehicle km travelled (VKT) and the vehicle emissions, as well as any 'unintended consequences'.

Article analysing data from the Vélo’v, shared bicycling system in Lyon (France). Data from over 11 million bicycle trips show that bicycles now compete with the car in terms of speed in downtown Lyon. The study also provides information on cycle flows that can be of use in the planning of dedicated bicycle lanes and other facilities.

Results from a trial of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in the city of Rotterdam during 2012-13. Study monitored 75 vehicles and 129 charging points, and analyses a range of outcomes seen over the trial period.

This study sought to quantify the effect of light rail transit (LRT) on traffic in a travel corridor and provide quantitative data that can be used to shape future transportation policies aimed at reducing traffic congestion, energy consumption, and air pollution. The study used a quasi-experiment design and data before and after the University of Utah’s TRAX LRT line was opened.
