Bicycle Agenda 2017-2020
4. Optimise the transition between modes, public transport-bike and car-bike
The distance a bicycle can reach has its limit, although the electric bike can improve this distance range. For longer distances the bicycle can still be used to reach the train station or bus stop and then take public transportation. Upon arrival, rent a bicycle for the last stretch of your journey. Another option is to opt for the car and park it at the edge of the city and grab a bicycle for the ‘last mile’.
- Agree on the goals for the optimal performance of bicycle parking for multiple facilities and the full costs distribution of the bicycle parking at rail stations for the period until 2030.
- First order: provide standard bicycle parking at bus stops.
- Develop an analysis tool so informed decisions can be taken on the appropriate measures to improve door-to-door trips.
- Exploring different ways to organise / chose public transport, which includes the exploration ‘Mobility as a Service’ as a possible replacement of public transportation, where the bicycle can play a greater role in choosing transportation options.
- Use of ICT platforms and / or applications to reduce the search time for bicycle parking and offer information on modality options for cycling infrastructure and parking facilities at public transportation interchanges.
- Establish inspiring multimodality plans in three regions as input for applications, which will improve the practice in regional public transport.
- Create a list of initiatives and systems for rental and shared bicycles.
- Explore the possibilities to achieve standards for rental and shared bicycles.
- Prepare a program of requirements for software and hardware for electronic bicycle lockers that have contracts
- Pilot projects with changes from the car to the bike (P + Bike) for continuing the journey with bicycles (last mile).
