Statements from cities

"BYPAD gives us many good tips for different ways of solving problems."
Luisa Cesari, Traffic Planner, Ferrara, Italy
"Dealing with the questionnaire made me look at our activities from a different point of view. The contents of the questions provided me with many ideas for the future."
Peter Weiss, Bicycle Traffic Coordinator, Salzburg, Austria
"Sitting around a table to reflect on local cycling policy is one of the benefits of BYPAD. The exchange of ideas and experiences with other cities is crucial for the succesful implementation of BYPAD in one's own city."
Peter Schmitz, former director of the model project 'Cycle-friendly Troisdorf', Troisdorf, Germany
"It is a good idea to integrate the health effects of cycling into our cycling policy. I will definitely make contact with my colleagues in the Environmental Office."
J.C. van Hasselt, City Traffic Council, Zwolle, the Netherlands
"BYPAD helps us to take a long-term view of the future, to make the necessary resources available and also to subject the current policy to a critical evaluation. BYPAD is not a superfluous luxury for cities that are serious about bicycle traffic."
Yves de Baets, Communications Officer, Mobility Office Gent, Belgium
"A problem can only be solved if one is aware of it. In addition, promotion and reinforcement of eco-friendly bicycle traffic in regions and municipalities is to a great extent dependent on the fact that those responsible in politics and administration recognize which parameters are essential to achieve a high proportion of bicycle traffic and where specific calls for action are required. Bypad supports this target-orientated approach and offers a good anchoring within municipalities and regions respectively, through a participatory approach. Bicycle traffic is thematized and brought to attention - an optimal prerequisite for a successful bicycle traffic policy."
DI Ekkehard Allinger-Csollich, Amt der Tiroler Landesregierung, Austria
"The BYPAD project provided an important tool for self-evaluation on the promotion of cycling in the city of Salzburg."
Peter Weiss, City of Salzburg
"BYPAD - yes, please! I can highly recommend this audit to all communities which want to increase their cycling rate. I am pleased that we have four very well-trained BYPAD-Auditors in Oberösterreich and hope that the communities will engage this offering."
Christian Hummer, Landes Oberösterreich
