During this seminar, Rachel Aldred from the Centre for Urban Infrastructure will present the Propensity to Cycle Tool (PCT) project – a free online tool for cycle planning. The PCT provides information about where commuter cycling potential is greatest, at both area and route level, under a range of data-driven scenarios. It allows planners to visualise how cycling might change spatially as it grows, right down to individual route sections. Rachel will talk about the aims (and limitations) of the tool, showing how it has been used in case studies and its growing use in local and national planning.
The PCT project is funded by Department for Transport and led by CEDAR, Cambridge University.
Rachel Aldred joined University of Westminster in September 2012 and teaches on the Transport Planning and Management MSc. In August 2016, she became a reader in transport with particular research interests in sustainable mobilities and in cycling in particular.
The event is part of a seminar series organised by the Centre for Urban Infrastructure. The centre builds on the particular expertise of its researchers in freight and logistics, air, rail and bus transport, cycle movements, infrastructure development, planning and development, housing and urban design, as well as public policy analysis in the UK and abroad.
