Traffic Planning| CO2 Reduction

The claims of environmentally neutral mobility offers and a radical CO2 reduction in German cities seems to be shared by everyone. However, in reality, too many people are still using cars for their daily commutes. Apparently, driving bans are hardly implementable on a political level and reactions to them are highly emotionally charged. How can cities promote a re-orientation, how can they convince people to adapt their behaviour and use more sustainable mobility options?

Traffic Planning, developed at TU Delft’s Summer School, concretely and playfully maps mobility in your region and/or city. Participants use this simulation to deepen their personal awareness of local traffic conditions and gain an overall perspective. Subsequently, participants take over different user points of view. The task is to reach their place of work on time. In addition to personal preferences, obstacles in the transport system, like unnecessarily long public transport transfer times, become visible. The issues turn into changes of personal behaviour and public transport optimisation.
