Mobility Management is defined in many different ways and is also changing over time. EPOMM endorsed the definition as developed by the MAX-project as shown below. However, older definitions as by the MOMENTUM-project are also still valid and can be found on the older version of the EPOMM-website as accessible on the menu on the right.
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.
