Did Cycling Policy and Programs Advance Cycling in the City of Zagreb?

The developing cycling traffic helps urban centres to advance sustainable citizen mobility. The reason for researching cycling traffic issues in a beginner city such as the City of Zagreb stems from poor safety numbers, an increase in volume, an unclear development policy, and an inadequate infrastructure and legislation. The question arises, "Did current cycling policy and programs advance cycling?" The authors analyse the current state of cycling traffic and cycle promotion policy in order to assess the actual impacts of these various interventions on the level of cycling. A comprehensive search of the available literature, including data from the City Office, was made. This review paper suggests that the development of cycling traffic requires coordinated programs and a holistic planning strategy which includes all stakeholders. Results could serve as a beacon light for similarly sized beginner cities, especially those which are located in Eastern Europe.
