New strategies for traffic planning: The Dynaxibility4CE project

Jun 23, 2020

New forms of mobility, such as networked and automated driving or mobility as a service, are blurring the classic boundaries of mobility offerings. The integration of new trends requires dynamic and flexible planning. The project Dynaxibility4CE aims to develop strategies and tools for transport authorities and thus strengthen them in dealing with new trends.

Dynaxibility4CE is composed of the terms "dynamic" and "flexibility". The aim is to create a decarbonized mobility system, especially in cities and urban regions. The project tries to explore the access to transport systems in the area of framework conditions and planning processes in order to support transport policy and transport planners in better integrating new mobility services. This means that on the one hand, the (planning) processes will be observed as well as concrete applications and their effects on an already existing mobility system. The project brings together 13 partners from seven countries.

Dynaxibility4CE focuses on three areas: CCAM (= automated and networked driving), Mobility as a Service and Urban Vehicle Access Regulations (= access management) In these areas, in addition to pilot tests, strategies are to be planned or further developed. In a further step, the strategies are to be discussed together with traffic planners in order to revise, adapt or refine framework conditions and processes.

At the national level, participation guidelines for experimental areas are to be developed. In addition, work is being done on the establishment of an Austrian Platform for Sustainable Urban Planning (SUMP). Such platforms, which already exist in other countries, are closely interwoven with an urban or national transport policy. They strengthen EU-wide links among each other, promote the exchange of experience and networking, and help raise awareness of sustainable planning processes.

The project started in March 2020 and will run for 24 months. More information about the project and the project partners can be found on the project page.
