1- Presenting an overview of best practice for promoting cycling and walking instead of car-driving in cities by giving an overview of cycle friendly and pedestrian friendly infrastructure elements and other measures to promote cycling and walking, and by comparing measures to support cycling and walking, and by comparing measures to support cycling and walking implemented in cycle/pedestrian-minded and non-minded cities.
2- Provide new knowledge on road users' modal choice for short trips in urban traffic by collecting and studying behavioural factors affecting transport behaviour (modal choice) and by collecting and studying daily travel patterns.
3- Provide new knowledge about attitudes and behaviour leading to urban traffic accidents with two parties (car-cyclist and car-pedestrian) by in-depth interviews with those involved, as it is assumed that improving safety of cycling and walking could play an important role in the efforts of increasing their role in the urban modal split.
4- Presenting general recommendations and guidelines to decision makers regarding directions for efforts to promote walking and cycling instead of short car trips in cities and for further initiatives in this field.
