Definition of Mobility Management
Mobility management, often called ‘smart mobility’, is a cost-effective instrument for bringing mobility and transport more in line with sustainability. It is complementary to technology and infrastructure measures and it is the additional key needed to achieve sustainable mobility on the local, national and European levels. Mobility Management is the holistic approach that brings it all together; and that includes shared views and common actions.
