The city of Riga is implementing personalised travel planning (PTP) aimed to affect a behaviour change away from private cars to sustainable modes such as cycling, walking and public transport. The target audience in phase 1 was households in two neighbourhoods and public events, but it was public events which proved much more successful as a means to engage people.
In summer 2014 Haringey Council, along with five other European cities, delivered Phase 1 of their PTP-Cycle project. Some 5 000 households and 500 local residents were contacted at home or at public events and offered Personalised Travel Planning (PTP) to help them switch solo car journeys to more sustainable modes.
In summer 2014 London’s Greenwich council delivered Phase 1 of their PTP-Cycle project. Some 5,000 households and 270 local residents were contacted within their homes or at local events and offered travel advise to help them switch their solo car journeys to more sustainable modes.
In Spring 2014, employees of four faculties of the University of Ljubljana were invited to one-to-one meetings to discuss ways that their daily commute could be improved - a process known as personalised travel planning (PTP). Through the PTP, the University saw an increase in walking and cycling, and also raised the number of staff members considering a reduction in their car use.
The PTP-Cycle project produced a final report rich with facts and figures about personalised travel plans (PTP) delivery in four different target groups in Antwerp, Burgos, Ljubljana, London (Haringey and Greenwich) and Riga. This publication presents the outcomes and lessons learned from the demonstrations to inspire other cities and mobility stakeholders to deliver PTP programmes of their own.
