Shaping and monitoring behaviour change in the City of York

15 September 2014

With visitor numbers on the rise, the UK’s historic city of York is using journey planning to shape, monitor and encourage behaviour change in residents and visitors alike.

York is an easy city to explore with the centre largely pedestrianised, miles of scenic cycle routes and a well-used Park-and-Ride system. Ensuring that residents and visitors are aware of this is the challenge. Over the past year, City of York Council has been developing the iTravel York brand and website which includes a new and innovative multimodal journey planner.
