Mobility Management in a Resource-Constrained World: Are Local Travel Plan Networks the Answer? Animated by: Lisa Davison, Marcus Enoch, Colin Black and Johannes Berg
Why consider Local Travel Plan Networks? Marcus Enoch Loughborough University
Rationale for Local Travel Plan Networks • Transport problems are extensive and getting worse and traditional ‘supply side’ solutions need high investment over many years and cause short-term political problems. • Site-Based Mobility Management (Travel Plans) are quick, cheap and popular but need business involvement to work. • But businesses are not usually interested.
Rationale for Local Travel Plan Networks • So the missing link is to minimise the ‘hassle’ to business while maximising the business involvement benefits. • One solution is to develop local networks to do that. • Such networks have long existed in the USA and are slowly becoming more common in the UK but have only recently spread to Europe.
Arlanda Airport’s Local Travel Plan Network Johannes Berg WSP Analysis & Strategy, Sweden
The Context • Arlanda airport has been induced with a CO2 cap by the Swedish Environmental Court • More than 50 % of emissions are from ground transport • In order to avoid having to decrease number of flights, employees and visitors needs to commute with sustainable transport modes to a larger extent • Therefore the desicion was made to join TravelPlanPlus, Cargo City was chosen as a pilot site
Site overview Located within the airport boundaries but away from the terminal area
Transport supply • Very good to the terminal area, frequent buses, regional trains and express trains • Cargo City is located 2 km southwest of the terminal area, reachable by bus or a 20 min walk. • Possible to reach by commuter train and bus with interchange in nearby Märsta • For employees living in Märsta and Sigtuna cycling is option.
Challenges • Rather spread out workforce, a lot of long distance commuting, average trip 32 km
Challenges • Shift hours varies, makes coordination of car sharing between companies very difficult
Measures implemented • GIS plotting of employee addresses to investigate feasibility of lift sharing, cycling and PT • Mapping of shift hours to investigate • Public transport offer jointly with UL, employee car commuters were offered one month free trial pass on the public transport • Dr Bike day for cyclists, free bike service and helmets • Improved Bus stand facilities • Investigation of new bus line from Märsta jointly with DHL
Conclusions • Roles and responsibilities needs to defined when entering a problem. There is no such thing as “shared leadership” • The process of creating support for the LTPN needs to start as early as possible since this will take time • Project champions are important as well involving the right personal. • Companies will play an active role in the project if the feel that they are involved in the decision process • Behavioural change takes time, quick wins as free PT and Dr bike creates support for the LTPN

Distance Learning – Reducing the Need to Travel Lisa Davison, Loughborough University
How to Create and Sustain a Local Travel Plan Network: • Objectives • To increase awareness of LTPNs in order to influence policy • To develop an understanding of contexts which supports LTPN development and the resources required for success • To provide individuals with the tools to initiate and implement a LTPN and then monitor and evaluate the impacts • Taster session today, joining details in course packs
Futureof LTPNs - key challenges • LPTN awareness and competence • Feasibility funding • Improving credibility of LPTN approach • Need for robust evidence of MM impact • Maintaining partnership of (resource-starved) local authorities • Having to spend large % of funds on monitoring • Managing expectations • Employing the right team
