Objectives

The main objective is to analyze the risks and benefits of a modal shift from passenger cars to cycling. In this way SHAPES will enable policy makers to make clear and science-based choices related to commuter cycling and transport modal shift in cities. Therefore SHAPES has defined a number of specific objectives:

Expected results and/or Products
SHAPES will build an integrated framework to evaluate the costs and benefits of commuter cycling. The outcome of the project will be a distinct set of policy options that can be used to promote a modal shift to cycling and substantially improve public health in a cost-efficient manner while taking in account the physical capabilities of different groups and spatial constraints in different regions.

The results will be useful:
