Bikeable city - Model for active transport and daily excercise in urban planning

Reference number
Coordinator Trivector Traffic AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 5 091 337
Project duration February 2021 - June 2023
Status Completed
Venture Challenge-driven innovation - Phase 2 Collaboration

Purpose and goal

The goal was to create a system solution with the ability to translate broad knowledge, overcome obstacles and implement cycling-promoting planning for change. With a focus on cycleability, the starting point was five sub-innovations (Physical activity on prescription with cycling, the bicycle train app, Safe with technology "Trafikkollen", Shortcuts and wooden bridges, active mobility fund) which were tested and evaluated. A health promoter (diagnostic tool), was developed to determine the conditions for an organization to implement cycle-promoting innovations.

Expected effects and result

The sub innovations have been tested and evaluated and a health promoter has been developed. Effects on the 2030 goals good health, sustainable cities and climate change through increased cycling, have been measured to a limited extent. A process evaluation has contributed many lessons. Further development of the sub-innovations and the health promoter should focus geographically and in terms of target group. A possible approach is schools in socially vulnerable areas. In this way, "Bikeable Schools" would create more synergy effects and impact evaluation would be facilitated.

Planned approach and implementation

The project was carried out for just over two years with a focus on the five sub-innovations. During the first year, preparations were carried out, while the second year focused on implementation. An evaluation group has followed the sub-innovations during the preparation phase and implementation. During the course of the project, the set-up and preparations for an impact evaluation re-focused toward a process evaluation. In parallel with the work on the five sub-innovations, the consortium developed a health promoter (diagnostic tool) that holds the whole together.
