Are you interested in new modes of travel? Or perhaps you are in charge of managing mobility within your company? In this article, we will introduce you to different key elements of a mobility plan.
First of all, what is a mobility plan? These are all initiatives aimed at promoting more sustainable and efficient means of travel. Because yes! Efficient mobility is above all sustainable mobility. Here are 5 essential points for a successful mobility plan:
1. Encourage alternative modes of travel
This obviously depends on your geographical position. On the other hand, it is very interesting for a company that is committed to its CSR policy to encourage more gentle means of travel. For example, it is possible to encourage the use of bicycles in several ways:
Set up facilities
Many people refuse to travel by bicycle for fear of theft or because of congestion. Any installation suggesting that bicycles are welcome (parking lots, locks, etc.) fits perfectly into a mobility plan.
Have bicycles financed
Enhancing the value of cycling is one of the essential building blocks of the mobility plan. To do this, it is possible to set up a solution for financing several bicycles for your employees. Some companies, specialized in the sale of bicycle fleets for works councils or CSR services.
2. The carpool boom
Many platforms are beginning to emerge. Some startups offer a short or long-distance carpooling solution. In addition, they can certify your sustainable mobility expenses, which again allows you to benefit from tax deductions. It is also possible to set up your own carpooling solution internally. Nevertheless, it would be a pity not to take advantage of the notoriety of the already existing platforms.
3. Encourage the use of public transport
Whether by fully or partially reimbursing a subscription for public transport or by carrying out internal awareness actions, encouraging people to use public transport is a cornerstone in the implementation of a mobility plan.
This video created by the Alliance Network, a network of responsible growth entrepreneurs, explains very well what shared mobility is all about. Watch the video here.
4. An alternative to traditional schedules
Do you really need to see all your employees arrive at 9am and leave at 5pm? If this is not the case, why not arrange schedules according to the real needs of the company? An employee wants to come earlier to leave earlier? If you accept, not only will it return it to you a hundredfold, but you will also help to relieve congestion in your city.
In addition, teleworking is becoming fashionable. Isn’t this an opportunity to test this new trend?
5. What about shared mobility in all this?
Electric scooters, self-service cars, intelligent parking solutions, all words that are part of the lexical field of shared mobility. In the context of mobility management, one of the company’s pet animals is the lack of space. Delays, road congestion, increased carbon footprint, are all consequences of a long search for space.
Thus, in order to improve the parking experience, many solutions may exist. For example, you can rent places near your company. Or on the contrary, you can rent out your own spaces if you have underused parking spaces. In addition, there is a parking management solution that allows you to optimise and streamline parking management.
As you will have understood, valuing shared mobility in general and optimising the parking experience in particular is an ideal rope on the arc of your mobility plan.
