Mobility Planning

The power of planning

Mobility management is a concept to promote sustainable transport and reduce single occupancy car use by changing travellers’ attitudes and behaviour. At the core of mobility management are so-called soft measures such as information, communication, organisation of services and coordination of activities of different partners.

Such measures are typically used to enhance the effectiveness of so-called hard measures such as investments in tram lines, roads and cycling infrastructure. Mobility management measures normally cost less than hard measures and may have very good benefit-cost ratios.

In the field of mobility management, CIVITAS cities worked on public participation; mobility marketing/awareness raising; and mobility planning. This highlight offers insights on the last of these subcategories.

Mobility planning includes the development of sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMPs) and efforts to establish travel plans for large events or for sites that generate traffic, suchas businesses, events, schools and public buildings.

Because of the significant impact that mobility planning can have on the modal split within a city, the CIVITAS Initiative has realised 46 measures on mobility planning and awareness raising in 31 different cities from 2002 to 2012. Read the CIVITAS highlight on mobilty planning to learn about some of the most successful and eye-catching among these to inspire other EU cities.
