1 Heading Cycling in London 2 nd October 2013 Nicola Francis Delivery Planning Transport for London 1

2 Heading Today s presentation Setting the scene Cycling potential Cycling interventions Flagship schemes Cycle Safety Package of measures Olympic and cycling legacy Mayor s Vision for cycling Conclusions

3 Setting Heading the scene Aspirations for growth I believe that the cycle-ised city is the civilised city Boris Johnson, Mayor of London Target: 400% increase in cycling by

4 Setting Heading the scene Growth in cycling 570,000 cycle trips now made in London per day 23% of Londoners cycled in the last year 173% increase in cycling on London s main roads between 2000/01 and 2010/11. 35% of households own a bicycle (8% 4 increase over one year)

5 Growth Heading in cycling to date Currently on track 570k cycle journeys per day on track to meet 400% target 70% growth % growth

6 Setting Heading the scene Comparison to other cities 5% mode share = 1 in 10 Londoners making a round trip by bike every day 6

7 Setting the scene Heading Policy Framework Political commitment and supportive policy framework London Plan: long term spatial development strategy for London Mayor s Transport Strategy (2010) Cycling Strategies: The Cycling Revolution (2010) Mayor s Vision for Cycling (2013)

8 Cycling Heading potential The potential in London 4.3m trips per day potentially cyclable Trips excluded based on: Person carrying heavy/bulky load Trip length is more than 8km Would take >20% time by bicycle Person aged under 5 or over 64 Trip made overnight (8pm-6am) Person has a disability Trips van, dial-a-ride, plane or boat

9 Cycling Heading Potential TfL s strategic approach Our strategy has focussed on the three P s... EOPLE Who is most likely to cycle? LACE Where are people most likely to cycle? URPOSE What type of trip could be cycled? 9

10 Cycling potential Heading Who is most likely to cycle? Urban Living Suburban lifestyle Young couples and families High earning professional 10

11 Cycling potential Heading Where is the potential? 4.3m trips per day are potentially cyclable. When plotted by trip origin, we can see that... 51% near market s potential for cycling is in Outer London, but is highly dispersed There is a high density of potentially cyclable trips in Central London nearly half of all current cycle trips have an origin or destination in the Central sub-region. There are large areas of dense cycling potential in Inner London, both for local trips and trips into the centre 11

12 Cycling potential Heading What type of trip? 4.3m trips per day identified as potentially cyclable... By current mode: By journey purpose: The majority of cyclable trips fall into three categories: Short hops around central London Commuter trips between Inner and Central London Local trips to shops, school, and work around Inner and Outer London 12

13 Heading Barriers to cycling Attitudinal Barriers Perception of safety Lack of confidence Convenience of the car Not seen as compatible with complicated lifestyles Poor image of cyclists Getting hot and sweaty Fear of theft/security issues Traffic volumes Physical Barriers Access to a bicycle Lack of cycle parking Lack of changing facilities High traffic speeds Provision for cyclists lanes and at junctions Severance, e.g. major roads Poor road surface

14 Heading Flagship Schemes Central London short hops The Barclays Cycle Hire scheme for short hops around Central London Commuter trips between Inner and Outer London Barclays Cycle Superhighways to offer direct and continuous commuter routes between Inner and Central London Local trips in Inner and Outer London A Biking Borough programme to provide local investment to boost cycling 14

15 Heading Barclays Cycle Hire Launched July 2010 Over 8,300 hire bikes at hundreds of locations Cycle Hire area covering 65 square km More than 20 million trips to date Over 180,000 registered members Future expansion to the West Average of 22,500 hires per weekday 47,000 hires in one day in July

16 Barclays Heading Cycle Superhighways Direct and continuous routes into central London Mainly serving commuter trips from inner to central London 4 routes launched to date with a further 8 routes by

17 Biking Boroughs Heading 54% of near market potential for cycling is in outer London Objective: increase cycling in Outer London in 13 Biking Boroughs Investment is focussed on three delivery areas: 1. Development of borough cycle hubs (e.g. Ealing cycle hub, demonstrating Go Dutch principles) 2. Creating cycling communities, where local people work together to create safe, pleasant and fun cycling environments 3. Raising the profile of cycling across outer London with events and promotional activity Over 150 locally led schemes 17

18 Cycle Heading Safety Common collision types resulting in cyclist KSIs: Cycle Safety Action Plan launched in March % of non-cyclists say they are deterred from taking up cycling due to safety concerns Aims to reduce the most common types of collisions HGVs are involved in half of cycling fatalities 85% of casualties are as a result of a collision at a junction Sets out 52 actions which include: Education through campaigns and training Actions to improve safety when cycling near lorries Targeted infrastructure improvements Enforcement against anti-social and illegal road user behaviour 18

19 Delivering Heading a package of measures Build Infrastructure Cycle Parking Flagship Schemes Support Supporting Measures Safety and Security Training Mapping Promote Marketing campaigns Flagship Events Responsible Cycling 19

20 Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Heading Promoting cycling Active Travel and Travel Demand Programmes Family, child and recreational cycling Borough support and toolkit Cycle marketing Cycling during the Games 29% more cyclists in Central London and 62% more in East London the areas most affected by the Games 20% more cyclists than the previous fortnight on bridges over the Thames In July, Barclays Cycle Hire had one million cycles hired in one month Legacy RideLondon annual 2 day festival of cycling, starting in August 2013 The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will open in July 2013, with an additional 35km of cycle routes The Velodrome will be made suitable for public use and the area around it remodeled to create Europe s biggest VeloPark The Get Ahead of the Games campaign contributed towards 35% of Londoners changing their travel during the weekdays of the Olympics 20

21 Heading The Mayor s Vision for Cycling in London

22 The Heading Mayor s Vision for Cycling in London The Mayor s Vision for Cycling in London sets out the following four key outcomes: 1. A tube network for the bike - Providing a network of cycle routes across London 2. Safer streets for the bike - A range of measures to improve cycle safety at junctions and targeting HGV safety 3. More people travelling by bike - Making cycling a mainstream and popular mode of transport 4. Better places for everyone - More cycling will benefit everyone, not just cyclists TfL s Business Plan includes c 900m funding over 10 years to deliver the Cycling Vision 22

23 Heading The Tube Network for the Bike Cycle Superhighways High capacity Superhighways, mostly on main roads, for fast commuters Quietways Slightly slower but still direct Quietways on pleasant, low-traffic side streets for those wanting a more relaxed journey Central London Grid Mini-Hollands Grid of high quality, high-volume routes, using a combination of Superhighways and Quietways (including Crossrail for the Bike) Up to 4 willing Outer London boroughs to make into mini- Hollands, with very high spending concentrated on these relatively small areas NB: Illustrative only 23

24 Heading The Mayor s Vision for Cycling in London Target: 400% increase in cycling by 2026 Over the next 10 years, cycle spending will total 913m, more than treble the previously-planned levels. My flagship route a true Crossrail for the bicycle will run for at least 15 miles, very substantially segregated... We will normalise cycling, making it something anyone feels comfortable doing. Hundreds of thousands more people, of all ages, races and backgrounds, and in all parts of London, will discover that the bike has changed their lives. No lorry should be allowed in London unless it is fitted with safety equipment to protect cyclists, and driven by someone fully trained in cycle awareness...helping cycling will not just help cyclists. It will create better places for everyone. It means less traffic, more trees, more places to sit and eat a sandwich. By 2020 the London cycle network will be easily understood and heavily used. We want to change the nature of cycling, attracting thousands of people who do not cycle now.

25 Heading Approach to Programme Delivery Tube Network for the Bike Crossrail for the bike Central London Grid Cycle Superhighways Upgrade existing Cycle Superhighways North-South Cycle Superhighway Quietways Mini-Hollands Better Junctions More People Travelling by Bike Cycle Hire E-bikes Parking Superhubs School partnerships Workplace and University initiatives Iconic Cycling events (Tour of Britain, Tour de France etc) Community Cycling Fund for London (CCFL) Enabling Measures & Processes Safer Streets for Cycling Enforcement Safety education and training Adult cycle training CSAP2 25

26 Lessons learned Heading What has been important for delivering growth so far? Political support and clear targets Supportive cyclist Mayor and a push for 400% increase in cycling by 2026 Background research and analysis Enabling a targeted approach, focusing on areas of high cycling potential and implementing a package of measures across London Flagship schemes High profile additions to London s cycling infrastructure, inspiring people to give it a try and get on the saddle 26
