Transport Innovation Deployment for Europe

TIDE enhanced the broad transfer and take-up of 15 innovative urban transport and mobility measures electric scooters parked on sidewalkand contributed to establishing them as mainstream measures.

The project focused on innovative measures in five thematic clusters: financing models and pricing measures, non-motorised transport, network and traffic management to support traveller information, electric vehicles and public transport organisation. The 15 cities actively supported by TIDE in developing implementation scenarios are:

Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans were a horizontal topic to integrate the cluster activities. The needs of practitioners in European cities and regions were a guiding principle throughout the whole project. A particular focus was also on guiding and finding cost-efficient solutions (cost-benefit analysis). The project refined existing transferability methodologies and integrated them into an easy-to-apply handbook for practitioners.

Face-to-Face training and exchange events as well as handbooks and e-learning on how to successfully implement innovative solutions were key tools to effectively support a wide range of take-up candidates in overcoming real or perceived barriers to implementation. A broad portfolio of dissemination activities ensured high visibility of the project.
