    Top 10 Bicycle-Friendly Design Elements in Copenhagen

    Chapter 03: Intermodality
  • 0:06 - 0:11
    The bicycle should be able to be taken with you from the moment you step out of your front door of your home,
  • 0:11 - 0:16
    wherever that may be, in Copenhagen or the greater Copenhagen sprawl.
  • 0:16 - 0:22
    and be at your side or underneath you of course preferably the entire day.
  • 0:22 - 0:27
    Without any hitches, without any difficulties or user unfriendliness.
  • 0:44 - 0:51
    We have a lot of different areas that require attention, when we are trying integrate the bicycle into intermodality.
  • 0:53 - 0:57
    Its very important to consider accessibility, how do bicycles can work together
  • 0:57 - 1:05
    with all the different public transport options, that many cities have. So ? consider first and last mile transport.
  • 1:05 - 1:10
    And of course, making it accessible to park your bike, is one of the very important keys
  • 1:10 - 1:14
    to creating this healthy intermodal society.
  • 1:17 - 1:20
    bicycle + metro
  • 1:20 - 1:26
    You can use the bicycle of course to get around the entire city on the network of protected cycle tracks.
  • 1:26 - 1:29
    You can also take the bicycle with you on the metro, because, a bit extra,
  • 1:29 - 1:34
    but the bicycle is allowed with you everywhere you go.
  • 1:38 - 1:41
    bicycle + boat
  • 1:41 - 1:46
    Our bus system here also has a very old system (?) of sailing up and down the harbor
  • 1:46 - 1:50
    and creating an important link in the infrastructure there,
  • 1:50 - 1:56
    and of course, you can take your bicycle with you on the boats, without any problems.
  • 1:58 - 2:00
    bicycle + train
  • 2:00 - 2:06
    The local trains here in Copenhagen have been really visionary over the past few years about the accessibility for bicycles.
  • 2:06 - 2:12
    Before, the have cost 10-11 Kronen, but then, they made it free, a couple of years ago.
  • 2:12 - 2:16
    Completly free to take bicycle with you on all the local trains.
  • 2:16 - 2:20
    Another great thing that the Danish State Railway is doing is, they have a bicycle parking.
  • 2:20 - 2:25
    There are many up around Copenhagen now from the city but they have put one right aside the central train station.
  • 2:27 - 2:29
    bicycle + plane
  • 2:29 - 2:35
    I think it's great to live in a city with a really well designed airport that is quite close the city center
  • 2:35 - 2:41
    and I can light out their one fully separated safe bicycle infrastructure so, want take a short trip,
  • 2:41 - 2:48
    an overnight trip for a couple of days and I only need to carry one bag, I ride my bicycle to Copenhagen airport.
  • 2:51 - 2:57
    So the goal is to make the bicycle a part, a part of daily lives in cities.
  • 2:57 - 3:02
    Make it convenient and safe to use in all the aspects of what we do and the things we do in our cities.
  • 3:02 - 3:09
    Also, one of the greatest challenges remains, how to get people to consider the bicycle as transport,
  • 3:09 - 3:14
    how to get them out of the cars, on the bicycles, on the public transport.
  • 3:14 - 3:20
    And, as we said before here, A2B is the key, if you make the bicycle the fastest way from A2B,
  • 3:20 - 3:27
    people will use it and this really is important to consider when you are trying to integrate bicycles with public transport.
  • 3:28 - 3:31
