Propensity to Cycle Tool: using data to envision radically different transp...
Rachel Aldred will present the Propensity to Cycle Tool (PCT) project, a free online tool for cycle planning funded by DfT (project led by CEDAR, Cambridge University). The PCT provides information about where commuter cycling potential is greatest, at both area and route level, under a range of data-driven scenarios. It allows planners to visualise how cycling might change spatially as it grows, right down to individual route sections. Rachel will talk about the aims (and limitations) of the tool, showing how it has been used in case studies and its growing use in local and national planning.
