EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management* - has released its September 2018 e-update on the topic of 'The importance of Mobility Management for ports, islands and tourist destinations'. The theme is described as follows:
Whereas traffic to tourist destinations often peaks inat particular seasons and times of the week, traffic at ports does have a, more or less, constant high flow of traffic. In both cases, visitors or port authorities, transport or freight operators have particular mobility needs and requirements. Changing their attitudes and behaviour, as well as policies towards a more environmental friendly mobility is an important aspect of Mobility Management. Especially when it comes to information and communication, organising services and coordinating activities of different partners and stakeholders.
Act TravelWise copy-edits the English version of the e-update 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' or 'smarter travel' in the UK.
