Technical Reports Urban Mobility

This page lists technical reports of PIARC in the field of urban mobility. These publications are classified chronologically.

  • Electric Road Systems – A Route to Net Zero - Technical Report

    The international Paris Agreement about climate change calls for action in every aspect of the modern society. The world’s road transport sector is responsible for a considerable amount of the total CO₂ emissions, so there is an urgent need for decarbonising the road transport sector. To achieve the Paris Agreement, the road transport sector needs to work with many solutions. For example, battery electric solutions, biofuels, fuel cells/hydrogen and Electric Road Systems (ERS). ERS are systems [...]

  • Case Studies on Travel Behavior Data Collection in Metropolitan Regions - Briefing Note

    A large number of people have been gathering in and around the cities. Transport infrastructure provision and land-use regulations cause cities to expand towards their outskirts creating urban sprawl and convert rural areas into peri-urban areas. So, understanding how the burden caused by the low-density urban expansion affects the entire metropolitan area is important. We focused on household travel surveys to investigate travel behavior of the residents in the metropolitan areas. It was a time [...]

  • Evaluating Impacts of New Mobility in Urban and Peri-Urban Areas - Collection of case studies

    In urban areas, accessing services, education, workplaces and/or goods requires efficient mobility systems. In recent years, various transport technology developments have started to enable more efficient mobility across the world. Innovative transport solutions and sharing contracts, including new technologies, new business models, new types of infrastructure and sharing systems are being developed to maximize the effectiveness of transport systems in urban regions. Through the integration of multiple [...]

  • Multimodal Solutions for Optimizing -Road Networks in Urban and Peri-Urban Areas - Case Studies

    The current collection of case studies is part of a set of six publications of Technical Committee 2.1 Mobility in Urban Areas expected for the 2020-2023 cycle. Mobility in urban areas faces complex problems which need to be managed within spatial and budgetary constraints. It is therefore necessary to optimize road networks through better integration with other forms of transport (rail, active modes, etc.) utilizing a multimodal approach. The Working Group 2 “Integrated transportation [...]

  • Electric Road Systems - Collection of Case Studies

    The collection of case studies report on electric road systems (ERS) provides an overview of the activities of PIARC Task Force 2.2 to date. This includes an overview of the tasks and activities of the Task Force as well as the progress made to date in terms of collection and review of literature, collection of case studies, survey questionnaire development and workshops. The report ends with a brief conclusion regarding the progress to date and information regarding the immediate next steps that [...]
