Transport Innovation Deployment for Europe
TIDE enhanced the broad transfer and take-up of 15 innovative urban transport and mobility measures and 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:
- New Pricing Measures: Milan, Huesca, Gent
- Non-Motorised modes: Donostia-San Sebastian, Aalborg, Craiova
- Network and traffic management: Reading Borough Council, Lyon, Rome
- Electromobility: Rotterdam, Tampere, Barcelona
- Public Transport Organisation: BKK – Budapest, SRM Bologna, Vilnius
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.
