Abstract: Singapore aims to achieve a “car-lite” society with a sustainable travel system. Active mobility, consisting of walking, cycling and the use of Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs), plays an important role for seamless public transport travelling experience. This is because a large of number of travellers uses active mobility for short distance travel, especially for first/last mile travel. Pedestrians and PMD users share various paths. This research project focuses on the effectiveness of infrastructural development on the cycling paths around Singapore that helps to reduce the speed of cyclists as they approach areas with higher pedestrian volume. Field works, including video observation are carried out near Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations to study the cyclists’ and PMD users’ speed profiles when travelling on paths with and without traffic calming elements.
