Mobility management refers to the promotion of sustainable transport. At the core of mobility management are 'soft' awareness-raising measures like information, communication and marketing campaigns.

To counteract this, Terrassa City Council - located in the Catalonia region of Spain - will soon introduce special parking areas that provide drivers with a place to stop and input their new routes. It is believed to be the first initiative of its kind worldwide.

The success of Helsinki's bike sharing scheme


Sometimes things work better a second time round. That is certainly proving the case for Helsinki's bike sharing scheme. It initially ran from 2000-2009, but when it was stopped under half of the 400 bikes available at launch were still usable.

Relaunched in the summer of 2016 with 500 bikes and 50 stations, the "Kaupunkipyörät" (city bikes) scheme has returned for the 2017 season with triple the capacity.  The neighbouring city of Espoo is piloting 100 bikes and 10 stations, with these forming part of the Helsinki scheme.
