Impact of Cycling on Urban Air Quality

Impact of Cycling on Urban Air Quality

The transportation sector does not only contribute up to 30% of energy related CO2 emissions (IPCC, 2018), it  is also a major contributor of classical air pollutants harmful to people’s health, particularly in urban areas where the concentration of cars and the densely built environment create a dangerous combination.
In this report the Cyclurban project analyses the impact of cycling on the urban air quality with the aid of indexes characterizing the air quality and comfort status as well as with the estimation on the reduction on GHG emissions. Find detailed information on methodology as well as the results in the report.
