Project Description

Lead researcher: Professor Amelia Thorpe (University of New South Wales) | 2023 – present 

Road transport is the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions and the leading killer of children and young adults. Shifting some trips from cars and trucks to bicycles can help reduce emissions, prevent deaths, and make roads more efficient for the drivers who need them. This project will support that shift, combining cycle journey data from food delivery companies with insights from extensive empirical research to identify priorities for active transport infrastructure investment and pathways for policy innovation in this space.
