Situation of multimodal mobility and future challenges


The conference on transport modelling and data management organised by the INTERREG BSR project “Sustainable Urban Mobility and Commuting in Baltic Cities” (SUMBA) took place in December in Tallinn, Estonia. More than 70 participants took the chance to discuss current transport field development.
The conference concentrated on transport modelling and data related opportunities for creating a efficient intermodal transport system that would make commuting more sustainable.  The conference included sessions focused on data collection, data sources, methods and open source modelling tools as well as sessions about building transport models for cities and practical examples.


Another focus of the conference was on incorporating cycling into a multi- and intermodal transport system – how to collect data and how to model cycling. Presentations covered topics related to challenges and possibilities for solving first and last mile by combining public transport with cycling, and  implementation of innovative cycling counting methods, data collection approaches and simulation on bicycle traffic.
