Among other measures, such as open mobility data platform and SUMP, the project develops a model for personal carbon trading on mobility and an application for the citizens that enables real-time tracking and visualization of one's mobility carbon footprint.
The mobility data platform opens up possibilities for new mobility service development. Furthermore, CitiCAP develops a model for designing the bicycle route network, by building a 2,5 km smart bicycle highway that highlights by example the importance of safe cycling infrastructure.
Lahti invites fellow cities to join in
One of the City of Lahti's climate goals is to become carbon neutral by 2025, and Laht is now inviting other cities to join in efforts to combat the hard-to-tackle mobility emissions.
The carbon trading application has already aroused interest in cities of different sizes both in Finland and abroad and CitiCAP wants to share the methodology and learnings of the development process with other cities. The personal carbon trading readiness of a follower city candidate will be assessed in a workshop. Cities should get involved if they want to solve challenging traffic problems such as co2-emissions, air quality issues and congestion and of course in order to become one the pioneers on the field.
"We provide an instrument for the citizens to take action on climate change mitigation through their own everyday choices", says CitiCAP-project manager Anna Huttunen.
Bicycle Highway improves cycling conditions
project will build a bicycle highway from the Lahti Travel Centre to Ajokatu.
The bike lane will be about 2.5 kilometers long.
of the bicycle highway is to enable smooth and safe year-round cycling. The
cycle path is clearly separated from other transport modes in order to create
safe and comfortable cycling infrastructure that simultaneously improves
walking conditions. When reaching Ajokatu, the cycle path connects with another
new bike path from Renkomäki to Uudenmaankatu Street Street.
solutions for the bicycle highway
solutions are being tested on the bicycle lane to improve the cycling
experience. The CitiCAP project hosted an innovation competition to find innovative
solutions to be implemented on the bicycle highway. The competition received
ten high-quality proposals from four countries: England, Japan, Estonia and
Finland. As a result smart, energy
saving lightning, safe bicycle racks and info screens will be implemented on
the bicycle highway.
bicycle is part of the city’s cycling network plan 2030, which consists of
about 40 kilometers of main and regional cycling routes. The main cycling
routes provide smooth and fast access from the residential area to the city
