Enabling any city to get fast, targeted guidance on how to accelerate cycling progress
Our BYCS Impact Index provides comprehensive yet accessible insights on current conditions and opportunities to increase cycling in a city. Using open-source geographical, socio-economic and mobility data we are able to succinctly identify and visually represent opportunity spaces that cities can uncover through targeted investment in cycling. The results can help governments, businesses and city leaders act on the potential of cycling to improve health, mobility, the environment, community strength and the local economy.
Instead of forming a competitive ranking of cycling cities, the Impact Index is designed – by using a consistent but flexible methodology and frameworks – to not only help individual cities but also to encourage them to share their knowledge, practices and insights. This ensures cities can learn from one another and understand where they stand in relation to other cities struggling with similar challenges. It also provides an opportunity for these cities to market themselves as taking cycling progress seriously.
Thanks to a collaboration with the City of Amsterdam, and refinement during small pilots in Mexico City and Dublin, the Impact Index tool is now ready to be used by other early-adopter cities around the world.
