The development of metropolitan public transport networks often involves choosing between investing in extending radial lines or constructing ring connections. While the former enlarges network coverage the latter enhances network connectivity and reduces the need to perform detours. Moreover, investments might be better directed at...

During tenders in public transport, the bus network is reconsidered and adjusted. An accurate prediction of the effect on ridership is required. Due to the tender environment, time and input data are limited. This research focuses on deriving a relation between level-of-service (LOS) and ridership, and implementing this in a model suitable for...

This paper examines governance responses to Mobility as a Service (MaaS). The analysis focuses on the interactions between public transport systems and MaaS developments in Amsterdam, Birmingham, and Helsinki. Case comparison is informed by the multilevel perspective on socio-technical transitions and literature on meta-governance of networks....

Many cities in Africa are confronted with the challenges of a rapidly expanding population, urban geography and the service provision it requires. Also Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s main economic and cultural city, is with 6 million inhabitants and a project population of 10 million by 2030, classified as one of the fasted growing cities in Africa....

The green strips can be found in many roads/streets in Bogota as an urban infrastructure for dividing vehicles and traffic. However, on top of this regulating function, it can be observed that the citizens of Bogota have the tendency to spontaneously appropriate the green strips in ways that’s convenient for them.

When looking at the future we try to imagine what will be factors in life we value the most. When it comes to focussing on the main quality of life it comes down to our health. Health will grow into becoming a lifestyle and not only a clinical state. Within a city where the population count will grow towards 1.5 million inhabitants it is the...

The discussion involving BRT and LRT is well alive among policymakers, who often rely on personal preferences or, as it is called in literature, on “blind commitment” towards one system or the other for their decision-making. The reason for choosing a system according to personal taste is also caused by the unknown preferences that public...

This study investigated the potential of ex-post fare policy evaluation utilising smartcard data. It looked into how to identify and measure the actual outcomes of a policy, define the degree of its success, and even find some unexpected side-effects of high importance. The study is based on a case of the public transport fare policy introduced...

Urban flooding is a problem faced by many mayor cities around the world nowadays. That is the case of several areas of the Greater Miami Area. Rapid urbanization and the depletion of natural buffer zones that used to storage rain water, added to climate change effects, specifically the increase of heavy rainfalls and sea level rise have only...

In this thesis, a luminaire is developed for the public space. The main purpose of this luminaire is to positively influence the state of mind of bystanders and improve the residential quality of the city centre. It does this by creating distinct atmospheres with adaptive light features, based on the use of public space. To determine all the...

In order for public transportation to remain an attractive travel option, its reliability must be improved. To enable this, extensive knowledge on the passenger delay phenomenon is necessary. This study explores the possibility of using empirical data of passenger delay to determine the relationships between stations through a Bayesian Network...

The Netherlands is becoming increasingly diverse, amongst other things, due to ethnicity, religion, and urbanity. These diverse societies cluster in districts all across the Netherlands. There is an increase in tension between social groups, especially between people with and without migration background. Data analysis is used to measure the...

The goal of this thesis is to determine the effects of integrating blue hydrogen into the Dutch energy system. A new framework is presented to assess several different designs for the business model, infrastructure, and market. This framework is applied to the case of the H-vision project. Three business models are tested against three energy...

Policymakers and literature have expressed the need for a visual and tangible manner of mapping circular value, the progress towards a fully circular economy and the presence of materials (material passport) in public space. Several initiatives exist for the measurement of circular progress. However, none have explicitly aimed towards the urban...

Public transport networks (PTNs) have an impact on both travelers’ behavior and system operations. A meaningful approach to investigate PTNs is via their topological structure because it was found to be correlated to the operational performance, the total ridership, consumer experience, passenger flow distribution, and network resilience. A...

The attempts made in history to design livable sustainable neighborhoods, have created dependency instead on motorized transportation and have increased the pressure of the city, leading to unsustainable environments and causing global climate change. To accomplish sustainability we introduce a new vision to explain what sustainability means in...
