  • "Modal choice in a multimodal transport system" is the title of the CEDR conference on 9 May that concludes the STTRIDE and ISAAC projects. The conference will demonstrate the new tools to understand the impact of new technologies, walking and cycling measures on modal choice and on road safety.

About ISAAC: Stimulating safe walking and cycling within a multimodal transport environment

The ISAAC project develops evidence-based recommendations to achieve modal shift in favour of walking and cycling - without compromising road safety, social security and comfort.

ISAAC brings together research findings and expertise from relevant disciplines including health and care, environment, transport and urban planning and traffic safety.


ISAAC is a two-year project running from September 2016 until August 2018. The project is funded by CEDR Transnational Road Research Programme Call 2015. Consortium partners are SWOV (NL, Coordinator), BIVV (BE), TU Dresden (DE), TOI (NO) and Polis (BE).


ISAAC developed tools that help administrations to identify the most effective and appropriate road safety measures for their city. The tools consist of an interactive checklist and guidelines for local and regional policy makers.

Access them here:

The instrument advises based on local conditions; on current travel patterns and modal split, road safety, the road environment, population and policy ambitions. Implementation costs are also considered in the recommendations. The guide will provide tailored suggestions for appropriate interventions, considering several characteristics of cities, their ambitions and target groups related to modal shift.

ISAAC tools will be available in 2018.

Involvement of cities

The draft checklist and guideline will be reviewed and discussed with stakeholders from a number of European cities to test its user-friendliness, its practicality, and its usefulness in different conditions.
