A visual representation of bicycle traffic in Graz

Graz is known throughout Austria as a university city. With approximately 45,000 students and around 300,000 residents, young academics influence the city and flow of traffic. Bikes are the most favoured form of transport amongst students. They are affordable, convenient and fast. The Bike Citizens app has been available in Graz since 2012 and accompanies hundreds of cyclists each week as they travel around the city. Thanks to the new “Bike Citizens Analytics” GPS data analysis tool, anonymised data can now be evaluated for urban planning purposes.
