Dimensionality of an urban transport system based on ISO 37120 indicators for the case of selected European cities

emissions by 60%. Ribeiro et al. note that road transport is responsible for approx. 75% of CO2 emissions worldwide ( Ribeiro, 2007 ). Within the economic, social and ecological dimensions, urban development and transport should be consistent with the principle of sustainability. The paper aims to discover the relationships between key indicators of urban transport, primarily from the point of view of the principles of the ISO 37120 norm. The discussion within the study focuses on some key questions: What does sustainable transport really mean? Why is a new approach to

Challenges of Urban Transport in the Face of Studentification – A Case Study of Toruń

Summary

Subject and purpose of work: Urban transport is a key element of the functioning of urban agglomerations around the world. As it is of strategic importance, the needs of its users have to be diagnosed. Due to the fact that students are the most numerous social group using public transport, particular attention should be paid to students as the real creators of the needs of urban transport. The paper aims to diagnose the challenges in urban transport shaped by the process of studentification based on the case study of Toruń.

Materials and methods: The multi-stage research approach was adopted, among others a survey among students. The choice of the research area was determined by the fact that Toruń is one of the largest academic centres in Poland.

Results: Toruń is experiencing the effects of the studentification process in different dimensions, including the spatial and transport facets.

Conclusions: The majority of students use public transport, daily or several times a week. The most preferred means of transport is the tram owing to its relative speed and punctuality.

A New Approach to Assessment of Infrastructure Projects on Urban Transport Systems

A New Approach to Assessment of Infrastructure Projects on Urban Transport Systems

The scientific analysis of currently used assessment principles of the development on urban transport systems; subsystems on vehicles, passenger and freight transportations, special public services, pedestrian and bicyclists has been carried out. Each subsystem needs technical infrastructure, the set of informational and traffic control means. Moreover quantitative and qualitative development of transport infrastructure is necessary for appropriate operating of whole communication system. Unfortunately an increase in the level of automobilization, growing transport flows in urban territories and decreasing investment for the development of transport infrastructure are the main barriers for urban development. An uncontrolled increase in automobilization changed the character of the usage of urban territories, urban structure, stimulated the process of agglomeration and formed new problems.

The results of expert evaluation and statistical analysis highlighted the influence of each subsystem on the sustainable development of whole urban transport system by technical, traffic safety, social-economic, environmental and other specific aspects. Objects of technical infrastructure that should be treated as infrastructure of urban road transport system were identified. The results of statistics analysis allowed determine features of separate objects necessary to evaluate; assess and adjust separate stages, key principles and quantitative and qualitative criteria of assessment of the development on urban transport systems infrastructure.

IT solutions in logistics of smart bike-sharing systems in urban transport

Summary

IT solutions in logistics of smart bike-sharing systems in urban transport In recent years, the public transport of Krakow, Rzeszow, Wroclaw, Poznan, Opole and Warsaw has expanded into the third generation bike-sharing programs - smart bikes. It’s an innovative solution, deploying IT systems and technology to integrate individual stations of urban bike rental system. The article presents the business model solution, its functionality from the perspective of customers and operator, and shows the role of IT solutions support in managing the logistics of rental network. An illustrative case of „Veturilo” solution implementation is presented.
