If the design is right, then cycling is an attractive alternative to using motorized transport. Fast cycling links provide travelers with a safe, healthy and often faster route through the city than traveling with a car on a road. Besides being convenient, cycling relieves congestion on the roads and has a positive impact on climate and air quality.
New technology in passenger cars measures the condition of the road surface during driving enabling road maintenance to be better planned and avoiding dangerous road deteriorating. The result will be better and safer roads, tax money better spent and more satisfied drivers. Ramboll and NIRA Dynamics, which developed the technology, have signed reseller agreements for Sweden and Finland.
Men dominate the transport sector, whether is trains, cars, or planes. In Europe less than a third of people employed in the transport sector are women. The way women and men move around society also differs significantly. Are our mobility systems biased towards men’s travel needs and patterns?
Location data from mobile devices provide us with the knowledge necessary for efficient and long-term planning of public transport. In cooperation with telecom operator Telia, Ramboll works on a project aiming to inform transport modelling in Finland. Using anonymous and aggregated data from Telia Crowd Insights, Ramboll seeks to assess how people based on today’s patterns were to travel if a new rail line were to be built. The aggregated data set is created according to GDPR rules, and with this method it is not possible to track individuals.
