CyCity is a Swedish research programme with the general purpose of improving our knowledge about cycle planning processes and to increase our understanding of cycle users' preferences. A key objective of the research is to contribute to the development of more efficient urban transport systems, from climate change and active transport points of view.

The programme started in the beginning of 2010 and is scheduled to end in 2013. The project brings together collaboration from different research areas to improve basic conditions for cycling and to increase cycle modal share. The project draws expertise from transport and cycle planning, transport modelling, health and physical activity, behaviour change and psychology, traffic safety, operation and maintenance of bicycle networks.
