Full title: Mobilizing Europe’s Green Ambition through Bicycles and Intelligent Transport Systems

The MegaBITS project is a continuation of the very successful BITS project. In MegaBITS, ITS solutions for increased and safe bicycling will be implemented and evaluated in five different flagships; The city of Copenhagen, the city of Antwerp, the city of Hamburg, the city and region of Le Havre, and the region of OverIjssel with its cities Zwolle and Enschede. Each flagship focusses on a specific theme, e.g. a smart cycling corridor, VMSs, Smart traffic lights…. In all flagships data on cyclist behaviour will be collected, both from the infrastructure and floating bike data. Open data through the Cycle Data Hub as well as the BITS directory with good practices will ensure usefulness outside of the project.
