EXPERIMENTING WITH CITY STREETS TO TRANSFORM URBAN MOBILITY

Across Europe, cities are trying to radically reduce their reliance on
car-based mobility in order to address sustainability challenges. Two things are lacking in these efforts towards a ‘post-car’ city: a proactive vision of cities that are both sustainable and accessible without cars, and effective strategies to deal with systematic resistance to change.  
The aim of EX-TRA is to address these shortcomings.

about

Central to EX-TRA’s approach are transition experiments in city streets, or intentional, temporary changes in street use, regulation and/or form, aimed at exploring systemic change towards a ‘post-car’ city. By way of urban living labs in Amsterdam, Bologna, Milan, Ghent, Munich and London, the project will generate insights into: 

1

Possible combinations of physical design and regulation that increase the types of usage and inclusivity amongst users of city streets 

2

Transport and land use conditions for the purpose of enabling and improving walking and cycling accessibility in city districts 

3

Shared mobility platforms and micro-mobility and freight delivery options which complement attractive streets and accessible districts 

4

Strategies of change that can accelerate the transition towards a ‘post-car’ city.
