The Potential of Cycling for Accessibility, Juli 2010

The Potential of Cycling for Accessibility, Juli 2010 


I-CE has compiled an article on the potential of cycling for the accessibility of destinations. It outlines a people-oriented (‘arriving at your destination’) approach as opposed to the common vehicle-oriented (‘moving more is better’) approach. Accessibility is the key issue, serving the individual and the society at large.

Cycling appears to have enormous potential in the urban context where most trips made are short, provided the right conditions are created. The article analyzes individual transport decisions using the three markets model (travel, transport, traffic). 


It advocates a co-benefits approach to cycling inclusive transport planning and promotion and suggests people oriented, qualitative indicators to assess transport policies and investments. Download the article here:
