Cycling@Tea-time: where next for cycling & diversity?Book Now
Start Date:12/12/2016 17:15:00
End Date:12/12/2016 19:00:00
Event Code:CYC0318

When:  Monday 12th December, 17:15 – 19:00 GMT

Where:  Chandler House, Room B01, 2 Wakefield Street, London WC1N 1PF

On Monday 12th December, we guarantee a stimulating discussion of the controversial business of diversity in cycling.  We’ll hear from researcher Tiffany Lam on her investigation of how infrastructure influences the uptake of cycling, and then from Tom Becker of TfL on work he’s been doing to diversify the user base of the Cycle Hire scheme. 

This is a hot topic, as any discussion of it demonstrates.  On the one hand, the goal is to grow cycling.  On the other, the cycling community is peculiarly unlike the population at large and this is a problem, particularly as barriers to cycling become better understood.  This theme will be explored first by Tiffany Lam who recently completed her studies at LSE.  Tiffany argues that the prominence of infrastructure in cycling policy is erasing the "invisible cyclists" for whom cycling is a necessity due to economic deprivation and spatial isolation.  Our other speaker will be Tom Becker who works in TfL's Behaviour Change team.  Tom will talk about work he and colleagues have been undertaking this year designed to diversify the user base of TfL's Cycle Hire scheme. They have worked with three London boroughs to deliver pilot initiatives and Tom plans to share initial results. Whatever your take on the subject, we humbly suggest you should be at this one!

Designing for Buses in the Urban Environment, BirminghamBook Now
Start Date:14/12/2016 09:00:00
End Date:14/12/2016 17:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0440

This one-day course will highlight common mistakes that can occur during the planning and design of bus interchanges and infrastructure. Exploring issues that may at first appear minor, but if not identified and addressed early can result in challenging and costly remedial work during the construction and post opening phases of the project. Many of these design issues occur because the designers or those approving the design may lack the specialist knowledge of bus interchange requirements, vehicle manoeuvrability and transport operations. Taught through practical examples and case studies, the course will provide an introduction to the topic, allowing potential issues to be recognised and removed at the design stage enabling costly and time consuming issues to be avoided.
