Better fuel economy, lower emissions and longer driving ranges are important factors for people considering the purchase of alternatively-powered vehicles (APVs), new research suggests.

Factors influencing people’s decisions about how they travel to work are highlighted in a new study on commuting in Europe. Key findings include: cycling rates increase with the length of a city’s bicycle network and public transport use rises with a city’s population and GDP per capita.

Some progress has been made towards improving air quality in Europe with levels of sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide and benzene all falling substantially in recent years, a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) concludes.

Policy makers need to be properly informed on the likely impacts of the transport management measures and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) that are implemented to reduce air pollution and avoid congestion.

This presentation contains relevant information on the CONDUITS projects’goals and objectives, describing the set of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that inform decision-makers about the effects of their measures.

Researchers have explored the influence of indicators in transport policy in two case studies at the EU and Member State levels. In both cases indicators were widely used, however, this did not always translate into direct influence on policies.

The promotion of diesel-fuelled cars in Europe may not have had the beneficial environmental effects that were expected, research suggests.

Moose avoid roads during day when human activity is highest, new research suggests. Monitoring moose movements in Sweden, researchers have found that the probability of moose being near roads drops after 06:00 and only rises again at approximately 18:00.
