DePICT, Designing and Policy Implementation for encouraging Cycling and walking Trips

We employ a novel 3D immersive simulation technology to gather information in the Netherlands and in Brazil on different walking and cycling environments and user preferences.

Walking and cycling are seen as the most sustainable modes of transport and should be placed at the heart of a ‘just transition’ towards low-carbon, energy efficient urban mobility systems in the global North and South. Such systems will be more resilient to the effects of high or volatile oil prices and can also provide affordable mobility and access to destinations across all socio-economic strata. The objective of DePICT is to determine the features of the urban environment, governance of infrastructure and local communities in São Paulo, The Netherlands and London which influence walking and cycling and how these can be optimised to achieve sustainable urban mobility for all.
