Mobility Management

Mobility management focuses on the many ways in which journey choices can be influenced. This can be done through both “carrot” and “stick” measures, either encouraging or discouraging certain travel habits, mode choices, the destination or timing of trips. These can include ride sharing offers, improved cycling facilities (“carrot”) or road pricing or parking pricing (“stick”).


Introduction to network and mobility management
Description Target audience

Along with the course information, we provide many links to other websites and sources that may be of interest for you as you think about implementing new measures in your town or city. [SOLUTIONS, 2015] Those who are relatively new to multimodal journey planning to help them weigh the benefits and challenges before introducing it.
How to successfully implement a new parking pricing measure
Description Target audience
Both parking prices and parking problems vary greatly among cities, but no city is entirely free of parking challenges. Charging for something that was previously free can be an unpopular, but necessary, decision for a city to take. Using examples from cities that have successfully implemented new parking pricing schemes, this course will address issues such as: How can you increase citizen acceptance of a new (or higher) parking charge? Is it fair to make drastic changes in transport conditions? How do you find the “correct” level of charging? And what is the role of enforcement in parking pricing? [TIDE, 2014] Practitioners in local administrations across Europe with limited knowledge of and experience with the range of aspects involved in implementing parking pricing measures.
Cycle parking: Why? Where? How much? What kind?
Description Target audience
Through examples from a range of different cities, this course will help you look at your own local context critically and answer the questions, "What is the value of good cycle parking?" and "How can an integrated bicycle parking policy help to increase cycling in my city?" and finally, "How can we start to achieve this in my city?". [TIDE, 2014] Those in cities in the relatively early stages of developing cycling as a mode of transport. A strong background in cycling infrastructure is not needed.
Road user charging: how it works, the challenges and the benefits
Description Target audience
Road user charging addresses problems such as congested road networks, environmental issues, traffic management and funding challenges for urban infrastructure. This course will give you an overview of the history of road user charging, what can be achieved with it and the technology available. Design, revenue, costs, equity issues and stakeholders will also be touched on, as will lessons from cities where road charging has succeeded and where it has failed. [TIDE, 2014] Those in city authorities that are in interested in the implementation of road user charging measures and want to learn about challenges and benefits as well as best practice examples.
