Program Smart Mobility Amsterdam 2019 - 2025

Featured image

An accessible, liveable and less polluted city: this is what we’d like to achieve for residents, visitors and businesses in Amsterdam today and for future generations. Smarter and cleaner mobility can help us realise these aims. As a city, we want to offer Amsterdammers, commuters and visitors alternatives to the present forms of mobility, providing a door-to-door solution and contributing to our aims. This includes shared electric transport, from cars to bikes, in ‘Neighbourhood eHubs’ (eBuurthubs) established in cooperation with local residents. That way, we can use clean modes of transport and create more space in the city by sharing. We can then use this extra space to improve liveability.

Actions

To achieve the ambitions, we will start working with two program lines:

1. Data and digitization
This program line helps the municipal organization digital tools and skills to ensure sufficient control in the future be able to rely on mobility in the city and around
improve quality in public spaces. We are working towards a mobility center of the
future. For this we will use the take the following steps:
• A shared basis: building a strong one data position
• A level playing field: frameworks
• Learning by doing: from traffic management to mobility management
• Ready for the future: aware of the consequences of digitization of mobility

2. Innovative mobility solutions

In this program we work together on concrete smart and clean alternatives to transport, so that Amsterdammers and visitors to the city are less dependent on their own car. We do this by setting up projects in certain urban areas and for specific target groups. We also focus on smart city logistics and we explore the possibilities of transport by water and air. Special attention is given to vulnerable groups and Amsterdam residents with a small grant. We improve the range of new affordable mobility concepts and increase demand, we grow into smart mobility city number 1 with a better and accessible mobility system for everyone. For this we will include the following in this program:

• Smart organization of mobility in the city: travelers are working on alternatives to possessing cars and initiating behavioral change.
• Smart fitting and efficient deployment of new mobility solutions: creating space for new concepts in the city and scaling up
• Anticipate on technological innovations: insights into new opportunities and collaborations. The report contains an overview of the various projects started in the previous program that are still running and newly started activities.

What is the goal of the project?

We develop the Program Smart Mobility Amsterdam according to an Amsterdam approach mobility system of the future.
The Amsterdam approach consists of three aspects:

  1. From small-scale testing to scaling up for the whole city
    • We test new concepts on a small scale in the city
    • We carefully monitor the results and lessons
    • We use the results and lessons for scaling up successful concepts for the whole city

  2. Proactive design and use of instruments
    • We develop conditions for the application of new mobility concepts in the city.
    • We use a wide range of instruments for the implementation of the program:
    i. Financial / economic instruments
    ii. Frameworks and policy
    iii.Information and communication
    iv.Smart enforcement

  3. Strengthen partnerships in three levels:
    • Regional level: Among others with Amsterdam knowledge institutions, Amsterdam Smart City and the Smart Mobility program from the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area.
    • National level: Among others in cooperation with the five big municipalities and with 3 ministries.
    • International level: the European Institute of Innovation & Technology Mobilus, working group on the future mobility of the World Economic Forum.

What is the result of the project?

The Smart Mobility 2019 - 2025 program focuses on three ambitions:

  1. Amsterdam will be smart mobility city number 1. We give meaning to the use of Amsterdam
    sharing mobility by achieving a fully-fledged alternative to using your own car by setting conditions to the (sub) platforms and providers. Shared mobility that is affordable, reliable and accessible to everyone. We bet on inclusive, clean and healthy transport, with extra attention to vulnerable groups and areas where the accessibility is under pressure.

  2. All Amsterdammers, visitors and goods travel cleaner and smarter. We make other travel behavior attractive by giving affordable and clean ones alternatives. We translate this into renewed policy and preconditions.

  3. Amsterdam is in charge of the digital mobility system. We are committed to further developing our traffic center to be able to manage, analyze, predict and in real time.

Who initiated the project and which organizations are involved?

  1. Strengthen partnerships in three levels:
    • Regional level: Among others with Amsterdam knowledge institutions, Amsterdam Smart City and the Smart Mobility program from the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area.
    • National level: Among others in cooperation with the five big municipalities and with 3 ministries.
    • International level: the European Institute of Innovation & Technology Mobilus, working group on the future mobility of the World Economic Forum.

The Smart Mobility program is a collaboration between two departments of the city of Amsterdam: V&OR and the CTO Innovation team. We work closely with the program 'car-free' and action plan 'clean air'. To realize our ambitions, cooperation with other governments and partners is needed. We work with other governments such as the AMA, the Transport Authority Amsterdam, Province North Holland, G5 cities bundling Smart Mobility, the Ministry of Infrastructure and RWS. Important partners are the knowledge and research institutions
AMS institute, HvA, UvA and VU, TNO and SQI. We jointly invest in knowledge and
innovation, we learn from each other and we strengthen each other.
