Towards more transit-oriented cities

Cities like Tokyo or Hong Kong are often taken as examples for being heavily transit-oriented. Yet such achievements are not at reach to all cities given the factors needed to obtain high public transport usage. The existing urban density, governance, political ambition and sound business models are essential, but other measures do exist for cities to become more transit oriented. These can include effective parking policy, innovative funding mechanisms, accessibility to stations or opportunities with the energy transition. Examples of policies and measures implemented across the world will be showcased in this first block to better understand how cities embrace transit development.

The first module includes five e-learning sessions on:

  • Parking and public transport: How better parking policy helps achieving strategic goals in public transport
  • The use of Land value capture to develop transport infrastructure: the case of London
  • Walking, cycling and shared services to increase the attractiveness of public transport
  • Rethinking urban space to favour the integration with new mobility services
  • Putting public transport at the heart of the energy transition and electrification
