Transforming Urban Mobility: Components of Transport Planning for Sustainable Cities

This course discusses different types of public transport that can be employed to make urban transport more sustainable. It examines the Avoid-Shift-Improve (ASI) framework – particularly the ‘Shift’ and ‘Improve’ dimensions – as key components of a sustainable urban mobility strategy. This course elaborates on some of the key components of sustainable urban mobility, including the instruments of traffic demand management and the different types of public transport, including metro, tramway, bus rapid transit, cable car, and other means of travel.
