A Mobility Management Plan is a management tool that brings together transport and other staff and site management issues in a coordinated manner. A successful plan can help competitiveness by reducing transport costs for both the employer and staff and provide a more conducive working environment. It normally brings together a package of measures tailored to the needs of an individual work site or a collection of work sites. This package generally includes measures to promote and improve the attractiveness of using public transport, cycling, walking, car-sharing, flexible working or a combination of these as alternatives to drive-alone journeys to work. It can consider all travel associated with the work-site, including business travel, fleet management, customer access and deliveries. It should be considered as a dynamic process where a package of measures and campaigns are identified, piloted and monitored on an on-going basis.
Planning Authorities increasingly consider mobility management to be a suitable mechanism by which new developments can support the objectives of sustainable development and the achievement of reduced car dependency.
