5 essential points for a mobility plan

July 17, 2019

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.

To put it in context, we will first give you the definition of the mobility plan.

This is the set of initiatives aimed at promoting more sustainable and efficient means of travel within a company. 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 such as cycling

Set up facilities

Many people refuse to ride bicycles for fear of theft or because of congestion. Any facility suggesting that bikes are welcome (bicycle parking, locks, etc.) fits perfectly within the framework of a mobility plan.

Have bicycles financed

It is possible to set up a bike financing solution for your employees. Some companies specialize in selling fleets of bicycles for works councils or CSR services.

2. Implement carpooling

Many platforms are beginning to emerge. Some start-ups offer a short or long-distance carpooling solution. In addition, they can endorse 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 platforms which already exist.

3. Encourage the use of public transportation

Whether by fully or partially reimbursing a subscription for public transportation or by carrying out internal awareness actions, encouraging people to use public transportation is essential in the implementation of a mobility plan.

4. Rethink work schedules

Do you really need to see all your employees arrive at 9am and leave at 5pm? If not, why not arrange schedules according to the company's real needs? An employee wishes to come earlier to leave earlier? If you accept, not only will he or she repay the favor in the long-run, but you will also contribute to relieving congestion in your city.

Teleworking has been on the rise lately. Isn't this an opportunity to test this solution in the long term?

5. Think about shared mobility 

Electric scooters, self-service cars, intelligent parking solutions; all these words enter the lexicon of shared mobility.

In the context of mobility management, the lack of parking spaces is one of the issues most often encountered within a company. The consequences of a long search for a parking space are numerous: delays, road congestion, increased carbon footprint, etc.

An improvement in employee mobility can therefore be achieved by taking action on parking within your company. 

If the problem encountered is a lack of parking spaces, it is possible to rent parking spaces in parking lots close to your offices. Parking management software exists if you wish to have a better visibility on your parking and optimize its use.
