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. Mobility management measures do not necessarily require large financial investments and may provide cities with good value for money.
Taxistop is the Belgian partner in the CHUMS project. Under the motto ‘doing more with less’, Taxistop keeps developing new services which allow for the optimisation of use of personal goods. The promotion of carpool (via the matching software carpool.be) has been their core business for over 40 years.
Within the PUMAS project, the City of Venice has developed a comprehensive strategy in order to make sustainable mobility an essential element of its urban and educational policy.
Its 'shared sustainable school mobility plan' includes the active involvement of parents and pupils to transform both physical urban spaces and mobility behaviour in order to improve the safety and health of home-school journeys in Mestre-Venice and to promote new forms of sustainable accessibility.
I have created a survey intended for individuals and organizations, who are concerned with Sustainable Mobility and Urban Development. The survey seeks to gain key insights into which factors best support change (modal shift) in cities, by better understanding the priorities, strategies and experiences of all who are concerned with this topic.
Since late 2014, the REC has been developing and piloting on site a tool to monitor and help reduce CO2 and pollutant emissions and improve the energy efficiency of its employees’ commuting. The data it gathers (including fuel costs, savings and calories burned) feed into a daily ride-sharing platform and a website that also offers other information on public transport services, bike-to-work options and mobility planning. The technical set-up is illustrated here.
A new Munich housing development has created an e-mobility service so that its residents can rent electric vehicles for their day-to-day travel needs.
The builders of the new Domagkpark development, which will house around 4 000 people, opened the e-mobility station in one of the building’s garages late last month.
The service offers residents two electric bicycles, two electric scooters, one electric cargo-bike, and five clean and energy-efficient cars – one of which is fully electric.
The course is intended to facilitate the development of an ‘Implementation Scenario’ for your own SWITCH campaign and consists of two main elements:
1. Six training units in the same order as the main phases of a SWITCH campaign.
2. A set of trigger questions where you can start developing your own campaign.
The are six chapters with just the right amount of information you need to kick-start your own campaign. The 'resources' section within this course contains templates, sample documents etc. which you can easily adapt to your local context.
The PTP-Cycle project has developed a comprehensive set of resources to help cities develop a personalised travel-planning project in residential, workplace, event and university settings.
Personalised Travel Planning (PTP) is a tried and tested way of achieving sustainable modal shift. As the term suggests, PTP provides tailored information directly to the individual on sustainable mobility options through a one-to-one discussion with a PTP Adviser.
The SWITCH Campaign Guide and Toolbox is an essential tool for cities and practitioners to develop healthy-living and active mobility campaigns, from project inception to delivery, and evaluation.
The SmartMove project consortium coordially invites you to its final conference, to be held on 22 June 2016, in Cologne (Germany). The conference will showcase key findings from Germany, Poland, Portugal, Greece, Spain and Austria.
Highlights include including: 1) an increase in passenger numbers by between 5 and 15 per cent; 2) annual CO2 emissions savings of between 20 and 100 tonnes; 3) a high level of cost efficiency compared to infrastructure-oriented measures; and 4) adaptability to different conditions.
