Mobility plans for organizations and institutions
Topic of the practice
Good Practice Information
Mobility Plans for organizations and institutions are a good practice of mobility management introduced in Slovenia. The aim is to manage travel demands, rather than provide solutions to increased car traffic. This has positive effects on the transport efficiency of each organisation. It contributes to the competitiveness of enterprises and provides opportunities for both employers and employees.
An organisational mobility plan is based on a survey of its accessibility (especially by green transport) and an analysis of travel behaviour. Then follows an assessment of the potential for employees to travel by foot, bike, public transport or car sharing. The plan should then propose information and incentives to promote these modes, for implementation by management.
For the successful preparation and subsequent implementation of the mobility plan is required the support from the management company and the formation of working groups for implementing a set of measures. Other stakeholders to be involved are: public institutions, private organizations and associations.
Evidence of success
