New tOols for Design and OpEration of Urban Transport InterchangeS

Objective

Urban mobility is of growing concern to citizens. To be more efficient urban mobility systems require a greater integration at urban level (city and its hinterland).

Interchanges need to better integrate:
- various urban transport modes, which can be urban, regional and long distance;
- urban transport and land use;
- urban transport networks;
- transport and non transport related services.

Not only will this provide a better management of transport and non-transport related services, it will also improve the functioning of the city in a global economy, as well as favour a greater use of environmentally friendly modes, and especially public transport.


In order to support European cities in the design and operation of new or upgraded interchanges, NODES will produce Guidelines and a Toolbox on five topics which cover the key functions of interchanges:

1. Strategies for integrated land use planning with urban passenger infrastructure planning
2. Innovative approaches relating to the design of new or upgraded efficient transport interchanges
3. Intermodal operations and information provision
4. Management and business models: the interchange as business case for the local economy and in itself
5. Energy efficient and environmental friendly interchanges

On the basis of the State of the art and analysis of User needs and requirements, these Guidelines and Toolbox will consist in Performance Criteria and Indicators, a selection of which will lead to a set of Key Performance Indicators.

The guidelines and tools will be applied in reference sites where interchanges are being upgraded or built, which will validate the tools and their efficiency.

The Evaluation and the feedback from the application sites will allow a review and possibly an improvement of the tools and guidelines.

Dissemination and Communication activities will establish the NODES toolbox as a reference in Europe and will support its transfer and application to a greater number of cities.
