Mobility Man-agement aims at promoting sustainable transportation and at reducing the demand for motorized transport by cooperation between various actors. More and more interest is taken in Mobility Management in the Nordic region. Sweden especially has launched a number of promising practical projects. Other Nordic Countries are carrying out surveys and pilot projects that bode well for this development. The Nordic Countries have the advantage of cooperation, sharing insights as well as many societal features, such as urban structure, corporate culture, and climatic conditions. Project objectives: - To collect, analyze and disseminate information on Nordic Mobility Management activities related to commuters.- To provide an overview of and make recommendations on policy instruments related to Mobility Management in the Nordic Countries.- To evaluate the effects of Mobility Management initiatives and to identify the most efficient ones.- To strengthen national as well as Nordic cooperation in Mobility Management. The report includes recommendations on actions to foster Mobility Management at a Nordic level. Most of these measures should be carried out at local and company level. However, the international community and national authorities also have a role to play in creating a more auspicious environment for Mobility Management.
