Planning, Regulations and Standards
Land Use Planning and Cycling
Integration between transport and land use has long been the holy grail - but rarely acheived in practice. Designing cities to create patterns of movement that are sustainable means having everyday destinations such as home, work and school located so that cycling is a practical option. Strong planning can help ensure this, and that links are made between cycling and onward modes of transport such as trains and buses. Clear and high quality interchanges signal that using more than one mode of transport in a journey - rather than just the car - is a natural choice.
Connecting the dots between cycling, land use and public transport
Handshake cities will learn how to ensure cycling facilities and interchanges are well located to be used to support journeys that allow for home, shopping, school and work to be undertaken easily and flexibly as part of one trip. The expertise of estimating the demand for, planning and developing cycling hubs at rail stations and cycle parking at other key types of location in the Netherlands will be shared between Handshake cities.
