Bicycle and its (bits) project kicked-off

08 Mar 2019

On 7-8 March 2019, a new multi stakeholder project on Bicycle and ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 9% and increase bicycle use by 10% within target groups, was kicked off in Zwolle, the Netherlands.

The BITS project, co-funded by the North Sea Region (NSR) Programme, has a budget of 5 million of euros over 3 years. The Province of Overijssel leads the overall project.

CIE is very delighted to be in the Consortium of ten partners from top cycling countries (NL, DK, BE) or those about to become (UK, DE). This project is believed to be the only one of its kind in the world aiming to raise awareness of best practices of “Smart Cycling”, and to provide implementers with ready-to-use information and evidence from different regions.

At the end of the project, the demonstration of ITS applications and collected cycling data will allow stakeholder worldwide to use these data for applications and policies. The effectiveness of ITS solutions will be evaluated, challenges identified, and results disseminated to other regions.
