Innovative Urban Transport Concepts

This publication wants to help urban transport decision makers and practitioners to find innovations that could be applied in their cities, by providing an overview of some of the most promising innovative urban transport concepts. It includes the results of the practical research carried out, i.e. a detailed description of the NICHES Innovative Urban Transport Concepts. These are innovative urban transport measures that have proven to be successful in (mostly) European cities. NICHES has explored twelve innovative concepts in order to encourage their uptake in different urban contexts. The NICHES Innovative Concepts, selected by European urban transport experts, relate to four themes that are considered to be a priority for a sustainable and innovative urban transport system.
