EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management* - has released its August 2016 e-update (published 22 August) on the topic of Overcoming Barriers to Mobility Management. The theme is described as follows:
Mobility management already has many success stories in Europe. But a systematic application of mobility management is still rare. That is the main reason why these successes so far have had a very limited impact on a European scale. In this e-update we will examine the main barriers that are holding back wide-scale implementation of mobility management or that counteract the impact of mobility management measures. We will also show some examples of ways to overcome barriers and some alternative, more beneficial policies.

As the UK national body represented within EPOMM (with financial support from the DfT), Act TravelWise copy-edits the English version of the e-bulletin and distributes it within the UK.
* Note that 'mobility management' is the European term equating roughly to transport demand management (TDM) - the 'soft measures' aimed at travel behaviour change away from single-occupancy car use, sometimes referred to as 'smarter choices' in the UK.
