Mobility Academy

Cooperation TML - Vlaamse Stichting Verkeerskunde

TML cooperates with the Vlaamse Stichting Verkeerskunde (Flemish Foundation for Traffic Knowledge) in the organization of four courses. We also provided support for the Road Safety Summer School.

Social Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA)

CBA forms an increasingly important part of the decision making process of infrastructure. A thorough analysis of the projects' costs and benefits helps a lot in making well-motivated choices. Thus, for the larger Flemish projects currently a CBA made with the financial, environmental and social aspects interpreted. Also at the local level more and more financial analyses regarding project realisations are made. In this context TML along with Rebel and the city of Ghent organizes a training day.
We explain the theoretical background of transport economics, external costs and the Flemish standard methodology. Also cases at Flemish and city level are explained.

The last training days regarding CBA took place on 28 May and 10 October, 2013.

Parking management

This course gives an overview of research method applications, measures, parking infrastructure development (car parks) and the innovative use of ITS applications in this field. What range of possible measures may be included in a good parking policy? Zooming in on parking regulations and planning regulations. How can a municipality organize its parking policy? How can innovative ICT applications provide support to make parking for operators and users easier, better, more efficient and cheaper? Including an overview of payment and control systems.

The last parking management course took place 12 April 2016.

Traffic data and software for supporting policies in municipalities

Which traffic data is available, and what software can we use to support mobility policies on the local level? An overview of the most techniques and packages to adequately tackle the problems.
In addition, the course looks at aspects such as “What does a multimodal model mean on a local level?”, “360 accessibility research: modelling of a train station”, “”Traffic management at the level of a municipality: uses cases” en “What does traffic software mean for a MOBER?”

The last course took place on 20 March, 2015.

Towards smart mobility at local level

Which mobility challenges do local policymakers face today? We focus on parking, bicycle policy and shared mobility. We make the link to open mobility data and learn how it can be structurally embedded within call specifications and mobility plans.
At the end of the day, the participants will have a clear view on the roadmap towards smart mobility and they will return to their workplace with some good examples of future-proof and data-driven mobility policy. TML focuses on the impact of ITS measures.

This course took place on 20 February, 2017, VAC Leuven.

Road Safety Summer School

This Summer School took place 22-26 August, 2016. TML gave a course on Day 4 - Enforcement and integrated policy - Safety Assessments in Practice
