Public Transport Lab: Integrating urban design and infrastructure to accommodate public transport

This event is part of the Public Transport Lab webinar series.

4 November; 16:00-17:30 CET

How can urban design foster the integration between active travel and public transport, thus promoting intermodality as a convenient alternative to private car use? Public transport and active travel are key allies to achieve more liveable urban areas, where citizens can use both modes in a combined way to reach their destinations in an easy, safe, and convenient way. In this webinar, we will hear about different perspectives and experiences that follow this approach.

  • The creation of synergies between bike-sharing and train networks at the regional level  
  • The role of Public Transport in achieving more livable urban areas 
  • The integration of cycling infrastructure and public transport stops
