Urban planning for safe future mobility: evaluating the impact of e-scooters on travelpatterns and traffic safety, to guide policy making and infrastructure design

Giulio Bianchi Piccinini and Marco Dozza (Crash Analysis and Prevention unit), Jorge Gil and Ioanna Stavroulaki (SMoG)

The project is funded by the Formas Planning Grant (Planning for Transformation, Stage 1) and is a collaboration of the SMoG with the Crash Analysis and Prevention unit at Chalmers. The aim is to develop a research proposal that will be submitted and evaluated at Stage 2. The overall aim of the project is to investigate the impact of the introduction of e-scooters on travel patterns and traffic safety in cities, using real-world data analysis, to propose spatial planning solutions that consider e-scooters in the design of future streets towards more sustainable, safe and inclusive cities.

Project timeframe: May 2020 - October 2020
