With the help of micromobility devices people can quickly move around the city with low levels of emissions. Lightweight vehicles like bicycles and e-scooters can both supplement public transit networks and enable flexible, on-demand mobility. As the use of this type of transportation increases, so too does the need for suitable infrastructure, especially in the form of bike paths and parking facilities. Cities and municipalities are faced with the challenge of rethinking existing spaces and dividing them up in a way that meets the needs of as many road users as possible. If this challenge can be mastered, conflicts and accidents will become less frequent, traffic flow will improve, and all participants will reach their destinations more quickly.
This complex task can be facilitated using the information provided by various data. Which routes are used frequently? Where do accidents occur? Which roads are suitable for conversion into bicycle infrastructure? Thanks to modern sensors that count bikes, data from bike apps and from sharing providers, there is more and more traffic data available beyond just cars.
You are not alone in facing this challenge. Exchange ideas with other stakeholders in the associated forum to tackle the right solution together!
