1 Velo-City Conference, Vancouver Friday 29th June 2012 Azure Room, South Tower, CyCity: Swedish research programme on cycle centric cities Using GPS technology to better understand the needs of cyclists: a small revolution for cycle planning? Dr Pelle Envall, CyCity coordinator Dr Pelle Envall Roundtable presentation VeloCity, Vancouver 29 June 2012

2 Our research and development objectives develop new methods and computer-aided decision support for cycle planning collect empirical evidence of the needs of users explore improved functionality of online travel planners for cyclists

3 Some people and partners Funding: Key partners: Dr Kerstin Robertson Mr Michael Koucky Dr Pelle Envall Dr Anna Niska Biology Env. Physics Transport Roads & road planning maintenance Dr Sonja Forward Dr Johan Faskunger Psychology Health Science Multi-disciplinary Mr Martin Emanuel Historian, Science & Technology In collaboration with: Lead partner:

4 Today s roundtable What? Why? The two cities Sample Preliminary findings Conclusions GPS use and study approach But first...

5 Cycling in Sweden, not so different from the rest of the world 10 % of trips Increase in metropolitan areas Country as a whole - flat trend Large variation in usage in cities (2-35 % of local trips) Variations only to a relatively little extent explained by hilliness, weather conditions or demographics! Stockholm a typical city (with ambitious leadership) Fast urbanisation

6 Overview: route choice study using GPS - Pre-questionnarie - Two pilot studies - Reqruitment of cyclists - Participants cycling with GPS devices - Short route specific questionnaires - Each route - Trip purpose and more - Sophisticated analysis using ArcMap software - Development of software tool to cut costs - Work started 2010

7 Why? Many cities want to increase cycling Limited knowledge about user preferences (transferability) example: value of time study Better decision support and data availability asked after by many transport and urban planners (Scandinavia) Implementation problems (globally incl. Europe, see e.g. Gaffron 2003; Kågeson 2009, p.1.)

8 Cycling is nine times as space effecient compared to car traffic at some junctions in central Stockholm * Public transport even better where flows are significant Capacity issue contraintuitive CyCitys fältstudier av cykelstaden. WSP Sverige AB och Spacescape. Daterad Tillgänglig här: *En majmorgons rusningstimme färdas ca 600 motorfordon och 900 cyklister norrut på Götgatan, mellan Ringvägen och Folkungagatan. Modal share in central Stockholm 5-10 % of trips.

9 User preferences

10 The first two cities Linköping, Sweden Ljubljana, Slovenia inhabitants Mostly very flat Pedestrian core Approx. 27 % modal share inhabitants Some significant hills Pedestrian core Approx 10 % modal share

11 Sample In each city 100 cyclists 400 cycle trips Participants recruited at work places Main age groups: years old Approx. 50 % men Trips > 1km Cycle as usual, not cycle trips for fitness purpose only Many participants frequent cylists (Linköping)

12 Cycling alone or together with someone Cyklade hela resan själv (ensam) Cyklade med barn < 12 år (barnet cyklar själv) 25 8 Cyklade med barn < 12 år (barn i barnsäte eller kärra) 43 Cyklade med annan vuxen/tonåring hela eller delar av resan Antal av resorna som deltagarna cyklade själva respektive med andra under resa 1(n 384)

13 Stated route choice motivations Vilket av följande skäl är viktiga för ditt val av resväg för den här resan? 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% ganska viktigt mycket viktigt n ~400 Adults 10% 0% Linköping

14 Many make short stops Stannade du idag någonstans längs resvägen, t ex för att hämta/lämna barn, posta ett brev? Nej Every fifth trip involves a short stop to carry out an errand (22 %). Shopping common Ja No gender difference Linköping Main streets/ residential streets...

15 Linköping, preliminary findings MEAN TRAVEL SPEED (Km/h) 18,1 17,2 16,3 Woman Male All n 400 trips, GPS points

16 Linköping, preliminary findings Significant variance... Higher than key facilities!? MEAN TRAVEL SPEED (Km/h) 22,0 21,4 20,0 18,0 17,8 16,0 15,5 15,8 14,0 12,0 10,0 Segregated facility (typically shared pedestrians and cyclists) Urban main road (mixed use, cyclists on carriageway) Rural road (mixed use) Local street (mixed use) n 400 trips, GPS points

17 Linköping, preliminary findings USAGE: EACH TYPE OF FACILITY IN SAMPLE 30% 5% Segregated facility (typically shared pedestrians and cyclists) Urban main road (mixed use, cyclists on carriageway) Rural road (mixed use) 4% 3% 58% Local street (mixed use) n 400 trips, GPS points

18 Linköping Speed, purpose of journey, user satisfaction and more

19 Linköping Graphic representations of travel speeds, raw data

20 Graphic representations of travel speeds Ljubljana

21 Graphic representations of travel speeds Ljubljana

22 First findings: route choice analysis 5-10% of trips involve a detour of 10 % or more (preliminary) Example: 300 m extra compared to shortest available cycle route for a trip that measures 3 km

23 Quality issues Revealed preference Online journey planner Cykelreseplanerarens förslag ( kortare väg och mera cykelväg )

24

25 Conclusions New evidence on travel speed vs facility designs, choice of type of facility and importance of detailed design, travel choice and more Evaluation of shared cycle tracks for cycling and pedestrians Delays Further and deeper analysis of detours -> derive user preferences Potentially some issues with GPS quality of recordings in dense areas We are cutting costs for data collection and analysis as intended!

26 More information will be published shortly on: Thanks!

27 CyCity is... Funding: Truly multi-disciplinary because cycle planning and implementation requires a number of different skill sets Key partners: going to deliver 12 coordinated sub-studies Probably one of Europe s currently largest research and development projects looking into cycle-centric cities and cycle planning Committed to cycling but realise that cycling mainly is a means to an end prosperous and liveable cities.
