Micromobility

Research & Policy

  • Anne Higaldo, the Paris mayor, has given the green-light to transform the city’s Champs-Élysées into a 1.9 kilometre stretch of greenery featuring tunnels of trees, green spaces and pedestrian zones. Paris is thus one step closer to 15-minute city,

  • and Barcelona continues with the expansion of pedestrian–first zones 🚶‍♂️

  • Sweden's national centre for research and education on public transport just published a review of the international academic literature on the way in which public transport operations and use have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic

  • The popularity of e-bikes is growing during the pandemic as it motivates especially those with the health issue who find out normal bikes too demanding. That is a good sign as the uptake of e-cycling largely substitutes for conventional cycling or private car journeys, as the recent scoping review suggests 📚


Electromobility

  • A new report from a survey among electric vehicles owners suggests, that once you go EV, you never go back — according to 82% of owners.

  • UK cities are making up a plan on how to have fully electric public transport. Oxford and Coventry are set to become the first ones 🚌
