Making cycling more attractive is an excellent strategy for counteracting rising traffic volumes and emission problems in cities and on municipal roads. That’s why Siemens is developing Sitraffic SiBike: the ‘green wave’ for cyclists. With the help of a smartphone application, cyclists are given priority at traffic lights. SiBike is a cost-effective solution for cities and communities striving to offer their citizens a better quality of life and enhancing their image as ‘green cities’.
Coordinated green phases – a ‘green wave’ – is what drivers have come to expect: To date, ‘green waves’ used to be aligned exclusively with the speeds of motor traffic. Now Sitraffic SiBike makes it possible to extend the advantages of ‘green waves’ to cyclists as well – on cycling highways, fast cycling lanes, roads or cycling paths.
Sitraffic SiBike. A cost-efficient system
Key advantage of Sitraffic SiBike: The prioritization system is amazingly cost-efficient. It is easy to implement and requires no construction work, but merely adaptations in the programming of the traffic light system.

Growing traffic volumes, increasing air pollution, rising costs: A mobility solution cannot solve all your infrastructure challenges on its own. But it will always contribute to making your city or municipality even more modern, more attractive and more environmentally friendly.
The first pilot projects have been started, for instance a performance analysis of SiBike in Marburg, carried out by the transport engineering department of Munich Technical University.
SiBike reduces the number of times that cyclists have to stop
SiBike shortens the average travel time for cyclists
The ‘green wave’ for cyclists has no significant negative impact on public transport
