What is Mobility Management            
General Information



Mobility Management - an introduction

This section should help you to understand the objectives and main elements of Mobility Management and also how to implement Mobility Management schemes.

Definition of Mobility Management

Mobility Management (MM) is a concept to promote sustainable transport and manage the demand for car use by changing travellers’ attitudes and behaviour. At the core of Mobility Management are "soft" measures like information and communication, organising services and coordinating activities of different partners. “Soft” measures most often enhance the effectiveness of "hard" measures within urban transport (e.g., new tram lines, new roads and new bike lanes). Mobility Management measures (in comparison to "hard" measures) do not necessarily require large financial investments and may have a high benefit-cost ratio.

The MAX Project developped a Definition of Mobility Management Besides English it is available in 14 other European Languages:

CZ - DE - EE - ES - FR - GR - HU - IT - LT - NL - PL - PT - SE - SI - RO

Mobility Management in more detail

On the interactive graph you see the various aspects within MM. It mirrors the overview you can see in the navigation on the left:
  • The various clients that want to implement mobility management
  • The user services to achieve a desired mobility behaviour
  • The instruments that bring these services to the end users
  • The target groups of end users to be addressed

The case studies of the case study database are linked to each of these aspects - so on each aspect you can immediately find fitting, up-to-date examples.
In the user manual, you can read on all this in form of a booklet. There is also a German language version: Mobilitätsmanagement Handbuch.

The information in this section is based on the practical and theoretical work carried out in the EU-funded research and demonstration projects MOST, MOMENTUM and MOSAIC and is currently under review within the framework of the MAX project.
