Purpose of the project is to examine the Eco-Mobility approach and test the criterias presented by the approach on our study areas. It also aims to determine the necessary steps to be taken in order to help the study areas to reach an adequate level of Eco-Mobility.
Besides these; the project aims to raise awareness of the existence of an instrument for assessing the level of EcoMobility of a city, to provide our cities with the basis for a such evaluation and to represent our cities on international platforms such as ICLEI and ECOMOBILITY SHIFT.
Finally, it aims to prepare our cities for a transition towards sustaianable and eco-friendly cities.
Protection of our cities is of great importance and requires urgent attention. The adaptation of EcoMobility approach may play an important role on designating of economic development strategies while protecting as our cities’ geographical and social structures.
EcoMobility SHIFT Indicators
Related to the Indicators, the EcoMobility Alliance Report (2015b) states as below: The SHIFT scheme relies on 20 indicators developed after consultation with various experts and stakeholders in urban transport. The 20 indicators are further classified into 3 criteria, namely Enablers, Transport systems and services, and Results and impacts.
E1: Understanding User Needs
E2: Public Participation
E3: Vision, Strategy and Leadership
E4: Finance for EcoMobility
E5: Personnel and Resources
E6: Monitoring, Evaluation and Review
Transport Systems and services
TSS2: Low Speed / Car Free Zones
TSS3: Information Provision & Systems
TSS4: Mobility Management
TSS8: Public Transport Coverage & Speed
TSS9: Usability of Public Transport
TSS10: Low Emission Vehicles
Results and impacts
RI.1 Modal Split
RI.3 Greenhouse Gases (GHG)
RI.4 Air Quality
Providing the local authorities with an effective tool to measure, assess and improve urban mobility can be highlighted among the main benefits for the cities.
