Editorial

Dear reader,

Being the CCIT’s representative in SCOPE project has been a pleasant experience for me until now. The collaboration between project members and external interested parties has been excellent so far.

SCOPE project’s mission will facilitate and improve the transport sector in Albania, leading to significant economic benefits and better services for carriers and shippers. To see the impact of this project we chose to held our fairs in key points commercial cities that work mostly with Greece and Bulgaria. The interest from stakeholders was impressive and we increased the number of stakeholders willing to join this platform. They also were very enthusiast about it.

Hope to join us in this exciting journey!

CUBE Access provides the tools and data to analyze accessibility and identify gaps in livability to inform planners and leaders on how to address those gaps. Attendees will learn what analysis can be undertaken using CUBE Access to answer these questions and will be shown how to conduct some of the more common tasks such as:

  • How to map the number of jobs accessible by any transport mode in a region
  • Mapping the walkability scores of an area
  • Calculate travel time to certain type of location (hospital) by transit
  • Compare accessibility to healthcare before and after new transit line
