Policy and Recommendations
Mobility as a Service (MaaS)
Transforming Corporate Travel and Commuting
This paper provides both practical implementation advice, with supporting case studies of organisations who have successfully changed their and their employees’ habits, and policy proposals outlining what is required from national and local government in order to support organisations and businesses deliver on their ambitions.
Mobility as a Service: A Practical Guide
In recognition of the benefits of MaaS and the pressing need for its adoption, the Urban Mobility Partnership has established a Declaration that commits its members to good practice principles surrounding its implementation. This paper supports public authorities by providing insight into the challenges they face when implementing Mobility
as a Service and exploring the different delivery models, regulatory frameworks, operating models and commercial models they can adopt and the benefits and drawbacks of these.
Policy Report: Future of Urban Mobility
Over the last eight months, UMP has embarked on a series of roundtables to hear from different stakeholders throughout the UK about the various challenges they face in their urban centres. By bringing together some of the most important figures in transport, environment and infrastructure in seven major UK cities, we have specifically focused our attention on the key decisions makers in efforts to tackle air quality and congestion. UMP is committed to help develop mobility solutions which help these towns and cities transform how consumers travel. Read our recommendations below.
Consumers in the driving seat: tackling air quality across Greater Manchester
We live in an age of dramatic technological change. What was regarded as “cutting edge” just a few years ago can quickly become part of the accepted landscape. This policy paper sets out a radical approach that will not only improve the environment, congestion and air quality, but also empower citizens to be able to choose the clean, safe, and efficient modes of transport that
suit their needs and the needs of their city.
The term grey fleet describes any vehicles that do not belong to a company, but which are used for business travel. This might include a vehicle purchased via an employee ownership scheme or a vehicle privately owned by an employee. UMP has conducted a number of freedom of information requests which have illuminated that significant sums of money are being spent on greyfleet by local authorities. This report will be published shortly.
Despite the national resurgence of debates around climate change and air quality, it remains the case that many consumers in the UK consider this to be an academic debate that is separate to their transport decisions. Read how mobility credits could offer a solution that eases congestion, reduces private vehicle use and supports consumers.
Planning for Mobility
The planning process has huge implications for transport. Read our recommendations on how planning policy can focus on the residents and workers who will live and work in new developments and how these consumers can access multi-modal transport options.
