The Strategy – How Cities Manage Traffic

PTV Group is launching a global survey about traffic quality for cities and local authorities

Karlsruhe, 25 February 2014 --- It has to be commercially-viable, environmentally-friendly and socially sustainable. The long-term traffic planning efforts are considerable. But how do we translate a project into tangible action? Here, anyone would like to able to be a fly on the wall and take a look at what the neighbours' strategy is. With 'The Strategy – How Cities Manage Traffic', the PTV Group is taking on the challenge and initiating a survey. With, interested persons can still participate up to 8 March 2014.

Moving away from the car towards the bike and public transport. The change to mobility behaviour is also reflected in transport planning. Instead of focusing on motorised private transport, cities and local authorities are keenly following a multi-modal approach today. In order to optimise driving speeds, to increase the capacities of the road network and to moderate the effects of traffic jams, different strategies are being implemented here: while some are concentrating on an improvement in traffic management, others are looking to build new traffic infrastructure, for example.

What are the actual requirements? Which measures are being taken to achieve the goal? And where are there regional differences? With the survey 'The Strategy – How Cities Manage Traffic', PTV Group would like to get to the bottom of these issues and has initiated an online survey. "As providers of transport planning software, it is exciting for us to see where the trends in the transport planning sector are heading," says Paulo Humanes, Director Business Development at PTV Group. "This gives us important impetus for further development of our software."
