What is Mobility Management            
The Mobility Plan



interconnect existing services and integrate innovative concepts

A Mobility Plan is the most common instrument for site Mobility Management. It is a comprehensive and directive document that indicates how to implement a Mobility Management scheme for a specific site.

In general, a Mobility Plan can apply all measures that help to reduce motorised vehicle trips to and from the site. It can be limited to certain trip purposes on the site such as visitor traffic or commuter traffic of a company.

Setting up a Mobility Plan generally requires a form of investigation (e.g. a survey) that gives an insight into the travel patterns to and from that site as well as into the traffic conditions around the site. The Mobility Plan sets out the measures, who is responsible for implementing the measures, how they are to be implemented and the time schedule for implementation. A Mobility Plan should include an explicit statement of its aims to be reached in a certain time span to act as a motivator, to convince financiers and provide targets for later evaluation.
It is important to gain an agreement among those affected by the Mobility Plan and to consult with all levels in the organisation to ensure that the measures selected will have as much support as possible. This is true both for the clients and the target groups of MM.
The term ’Mobility Plan’ has so far been used mainly for the site level. But it can also be elaborated as a document for other target groups such as a certain quarter of the city or for certain users (e.g. youth, mobility impaired).
