UVAR Box – First workshop

The project UVAR Box launches its first online workshop on November 24, 2020, from 10:00-12:00 CET. UVAR Box was awarded in the framework of a tender for DG MOVE. It is a 2-year project started in August 2020 and coordinated by Armis, in a consortium alongside AlbrechtConsult, AustriaTech, MAPtm, MEMEX, POLIS Network, PRISMA Solutions and TRT, with Harrod Booth Consulting, Sadler Consultants and U-Trex as subcontractors. The project aims to harmonise and enable the digital accessibility of information on Urban Vehicle Access Regulations (UVARs). You can find more information HERE. Purpose of the workshop In order to develop a machine-readable format, a structured overview of UVAR data and processes in the EU is required. Therefore, the purpose of this workshop will be to: inform stakeholders on the UVAR Box approach present and discuss the UVARBOX fact-finding approach (survey, interviews, desktop) receive first reactions and needs from external stakeholders. For further information, please see the press release on the CLARS website.

Mobilising Mobility: Regulating access to cities: how to be more efficient and effective?

Urban Vehicle Access Regulations are now established in most European cities: pedestrian zones, low-emission zones…the list goes on! They make cities a better place, but also require some understanding from visitors by car or truck. The webinar addresses how UVARs are evolving, exploring what cities (and the EU) are doing to make these zones more understandable (and thus more efficient) to use. Speakers will examine how UVARs can be more effective to reach mobility and environmental goals.  This webinar will be moderated by Ivo Cré. Information on speakers will be provided soon. The webinar is a Polis initiative in cooperation with the projects ReVeAL, UVARBOX and Dynaxibility. The webinar is part of the POLIS webinar series Mobilising Mobility. ___________________________________ About ReVeAL, UVARBOX and Dynaxibility ReVeAL (Regulating Vehicle Access for Improved Liveability) aims to undertake concrete action with regards to ‘smarter Urban Vehicle Access Regulations’ (UVAR). The project aims to enable cities to optimize urban space and transport network usage through new and integrated packages of urban vehicle access policies and technologies for the benefit of people living in these cities, in sense of reductions of emissions, noise, increased accessibility and quality of life. The project combines desk research and case study research with hands-on UVAR implementation in six pilot cities: Helmond (NL), Jerusalem (IL), London (UK), Padova (IT), Vitoria-Gasteiz (ES) and Bielefeld (DE). UVARBOX is a newly awarded EU Project, established to tackle fragmented or unavailable information on up to date and relevant UVARs (Urban Vehicle Access Regulations). The project, launched in association with POLIS Network, will provide tools to structure data on UVARs in adequate machine-readable formats for navigation systems and mobile applications. Dynaxibility aims to increase the ability of public transport authorities to deal with these new trends by developing strategies and tools for public transport authorities that strengthen their planning capacities and thereby make…

International workshop on barriers to dynamic kerbside management

Within ReVeAL, Partner WSP is responsible for exploring the frontiers of kerbside management as a future element of effective Urban Vehicle Access Regulations. WSP sees dynamic kerbside management as key to related solutions because it allows cities to allocate, restrict, charge for and/or prioritise capacity for different services at different times. An integral part of WSP work is to identify and understand barriers for future implementation of dynamic kerbside management. For this purpose, WSP is organising its International workshop on barriers to dynamic kerbside management on October 15, 2020. A plenary session with a thorough introduction to the world of dynamic kerbside management will be followed by several city-focused sessions where a handful of leading cities from across the globe will present their perspective and issues with kerbside management. Each city will elaborate on their perspective within a case-based exercise with relevant experts through 1h-and-half-hour sessions. All sessions will be recorded and summarized. The output and findings of the workshop will be part of WPS’ report on barriers to introducing dynamic kerbside management. Programme 13:00-14:00 CEST – Session 1: Plenary session – Introduction to Dynamic Kerbside Management by Per Solér, Transport Planner, WSP Sweden 14:00-15:30 CEST – Session 2: London – Kerb access for goods – how to manage loading and access more efficiently by Samantha Tharme, Senior Strategic Transport Planner City of London, and Dawn Miller, Head of Policy and Partnerships at Coord, former chief of staff at NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission 16:00-17:30 CEST – Session 3: Washington – Dynamic Curbside Management in an Evolving Urban Fabric by Benito O. Pérez and TBC, Curbside Management Operations Planning Manager at District Department of Transportation 18:00-19:30 CEST – Session 4: San Francisco – Technology equity – adoption of new technology and how to move from cash/card to digital parking payment…
