  • Urban Mobility System Upgrade | International Transport Forum | Corporate Partnership Board
    impacts of a radical upgrade to today s urban mobility system How We explore this question on the basis of detailed mobility data including origin destination and timing of all trips for a mid sized European city We developed a model to test various alternative transport system configurations that nonetheless would provide the same level of mobility locations and timing as today We explore two different self driving vehicle concepts TaxiBots which can be shared simultaneously by several passengers while AutoVots pick up and drop off single passengers sequentially We look at two different time periods 24 hr average and peak hour only and model scenarios with and without high capacity HC public transport in the form of rail or bus rapid transit We report impacts on car numbers volume of travel congestion and use of space What we found The same mobility can be delivered with many fewer cars but the overall volume of car travel will likely increase though congestion can be significantly reduced Reduced parking needs will free up significant public and private space Ride sharing vs car sharing TaxiBots replace more cars than AutoVots Public transport will have an impact on both self driving fleet requirements

  • Big Data and Transport: Understanding and assessing options | International Transport Forum | Corporate Partnership Board
    since much of this data is highly personal in nature It looks at the considerations authorities should have regarding the creation processing conditions of use and access to data that could help them carry out their mandates How We undertook this study on the basis of meetings and discussions amongst project partners desktop research and invited the contribution of an external expert group Carlo Ratti Associati in conjunction with the MIT SENSEable City Laboratory What we found The volume and speeds at which data today is generated processed and stored is unprecedented and will fundamentally alter the transport sector Embarked sensors and data storage transmission capacity in vehicles provide new opportunities for enhanced safety for both conventional and increasingly automated vehicles Multi platform sensing technologies are able to precisely locate and track people vehicles and objects in a way that has never before been possible The fusion of purposely sensed opportunistically sensed and crowd sourced data generates new knowledge regarding transport activity and flows It also creates unique privacy risks Location and trajectory data is inherently personal in nature and difficult to anonymise effectively Data protection policies are lagging behind new modes of data collection and uses this is especially

  • Drivers of Logistics Performance: A Case Study of Turkey | International Transport Forum | Corporate Partnership Board
    where international cooperation is helpful to overcome barriers How We use an international benchmarking tool the World Bank s Logistics Performance Index LPI to identify factors that have a critical impact on competitiveness and to understand which policies may reduce persistent bottlenecks In this context we undertook a case study looking at the logistics performance of Turkey To do this we completed extensive desk research and quantitative analysis concerning the country s logistics performance We also conducted a series of in country meetings with experts policy makers associations and selected companies involved in trade and logistics services These meetings were held under the guidance and participation of Professor Lauri Ojala University of Turku What we found Turkey s customs clearance has improved as a result of a decrease in the variability of clearance times Massive road investment plays a crucial role in increasing Turkey s infrastructure performance in the LPI on the other hand Turkey s heavily road dominated transport system results in high transport costs Port hinterlands are limited Turkey s logistics performance is primarily bolstered by the development of the private sector External factors and political risks increase shipment costs and decrease on time performance Policy Insights Variability

  • Principles for the regulation of for-hire road transport passenger services | International Transport Forum | Corporate Partnership Board
    as they do not fall under existing regulatory structures Looking to the future new mobility service configurations will continue to develop and novel business models will emerge bringing together actors that are not currently present in passenger transport markets The popularity of innovative mobility services indicates that they will no doubt be a permanent feature in many cities around the world Accordingly the regulatory framework in which they operate will have to evolve in order to balance the benefits conferred by innovation with societal objectives At the same time the regulatory environment for competing transport service providers such as taxis and some forms of demand responsive public transport will also have to evolve to eliminate unnecessary and burdensome requirements as well as remove market distortions Participants in the workshop worked to identify a consensus set of principles for regulating for hire passenger transport markets revisiting why it is that demand responsive transport services are regulated in the first place and investigating if and where current regulatory frameworks must be adapted to account for recent service and technological innovations towards a first principles approach Papers and Presentations Introductory papers were prepared to form a starting point of the discussions These are

  • 21st Century Public Interest Data Sharing | International Transport Forum | Corporate Partnership Board
    this data is being sensed in new ways from a broadening array of sensing platforms and in a wide range of formats It is collected stored and being exploited by a diverse a diverse set of actors that extends well beyond the field of transport These are useful data for managing transport networks and planning for new capacity However location data is highly personal and difficult to anonymise robustly and there are real questions as to how to balance data privacy and the benefits that could derive from innovative uses for this data for managing and helping plan for transport activities At the same time the share of mobility relevant data collected by the private as opposed to the public sector is growing and this data is at the heart of many commercial business models Prior work undertaken at the ITF discussed these changes and noted that one of the key challenges facing authorities was how to manage the delivery of public policy with increasingly privately sourced and owned data concerning the location and movement of individuals This workshop was convened to address the management of location data privacy exploring needs for new models framing access to and use of

  • JTRC Roundtable on Expanding Airport Capacity under Constraints in Large Urban Areas
    to Discussion Paper 2013 03 Go to Slides Expanding Airport Capacity Under Constraints in Large Urban Areas The German Experience Hans Martin Niemeier University of Applied Sciences Bremen Germany Go to Discussion Paper 2013 04 Go to Slides Airport Capacity Expansion Strategies in the Era of Airline Multi hub Networks Guillaume Burghouwt SEO Economic Research The Netherlands Go to Discussion Paper 2013 05 Go to Slides Videos Hans Martin Niemeier University of Applied Sciences Bremen Germany overviews the German experience and the importance of using an independent authority to carry out assessments Jeffrey M Zupan Regional Plan Association New York USA on flexibility given changes in usage habits and income levels and on the importance of dealing with capacity problems Summary Expanding airport capacity is difficult in many urban areas Expansion of existing airports is often constrained by community agreements on noise and air pollution and by shortage or high prices of land Finding sufficient land to develop or relocate major airports on greenfield sites within a reasonable distance of city centres may be close to impossible Creating land for airports in locations less sensitive to noise and land use conflicts for example through offshore or estuarine land reclamation is expensive and most new sites will require extensive investments in surface transport links to city centres In multi airport regions options for expansion at the airports are to an extent interdependent Assessing potential synergies and tradeoffs is complicated as carriers may respond differently to alternative ways in which the region s airport capacity is increased Many major airports are hubs for network carriers at the same time as serving a large local market The complementarity between these functions is often seen as a prerequisite for viable network operations suggesting that distributing services over multiple airports can be very costly There
