Transport Thursday: The potential of the bicycle and transit combination
Cities all over the world are facing accessibility and sustainability challenges. It is obvious that there is not one mode who will facilitate all modes within the given requirements of users, inhabitants and policy makers. At the landscape of solutions, an interesting combination of modes is gaining interest: the bicycle+transit combination. In this lunch lecture, our guest lecturers discuss the combination and share their international and practical perspectives. Dr. Robbie Napper (Monash University) will share his views on the topic from a design and user-oriented perspective and will look at the developments in Australia, Denmark and the Netherlands. The lunch lecture will take place Thursday June 20th, starts at 12:30 at room 1.98 CEG Faculty. Sign-up here.
