Characterisation of and reflections on the synergy of bicycles and public transport

This research argues that combined use of the bicycle and public transport should be understood in a broad perspective, especially where bicycles link to higher speed and higher capacity public transport, such as the train.

Exploring the link between the neighborhood typologies, bicycle infrastructure and commuting cycling

This paper investigates the evolution of urban cycling in Montreal, Canada and its link to both built environment indicators and bicycle infrastructure accessibility. The effect of new cycling infrastructure on transport-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is then explored.

Measuring stress levels for real-world on-road cyclists

This research effort presents a novel approach to measure cyclists’ stress: real-world, on-road measurements of physiological stress as cyclists travel across different types of bicycle facilities in various traffic volumes.

Improving Bicycle Detection Pavement Marking Symbols to Increase Comprehension at Traffic Signals

Building on previous research with the 9C- 7 bicycle detector marking and blue light detector feedback devices, there are two objectives of this research: 1) do users comprehend the 9C-7 marking and the blue light detector feedback device? 2) Does bicyclist behavior change due to a descriptive bicycle detector marking?
