Egis assists Greater Geneva in the definition of Agglomeration Project No. 4

09/15/2020

Greater Geneva has entrusted the Egis/6-t consortium with the task of assisting in the development and analysis of scenarios for the Greater Geneva Conurbation Project No. 4 (CP4) in terms of transport supply and behaviour. 

The CP4 will include a set of measures for the period 2024-2027 aimed at better integrating mobility issues related to the ecological and climate transition into territorial planning and public transport policies in the Lake Geneva basin.

Our teams have been mandated to carry out an exploratory modelling approach, based on the Geneva travel model, of the "variable-lever" trips that will enable future developments in the direction of the ecological transition. Indeed, the modelled behavioural variables are constant by default in current situations as well as in prospective situations in the usual macroscopic agglomeration models.

Egis is thus developing processes for integrating several variables to simulate and evaluate changes in mobility behavior in 2030 and 2040:

  • Development of the network's cycling offer;
  • Generalization of the use of electric-assisted bicycles;
  • Creation of new park and ride / expansion of the existing offer;
  • Increase in the parking constraint;
  • Decrease in the proportion of people with a driving license and in the motorization rate of the population;
  • Increase in the proportion of residents with public transport subscriptions;
  • Increase in the number of motorized vehicles;
  • Carpooling lanes ;
  • Development of teleworking ;
  • Car-vehicle pricing per kilometer.
