Mobility Management: A potential solution to Urban Traffic Congestion


The systematic reliance on an increased supply of capacity in order to meet growing mobility needs has its limitations. Many European countries are already experiencing it on a daily basis, inasmuch as they have tied their urban and interurban development to a strategy of extracting greater output from road mobility. In light of the consequences associated with such a strategy, as reflected in traffic congestion problems, the field of mobility management provides counter-proposals for a more sustainable mobility throughout our regions. In this respect, the example of Zurich offers considerable guidance.
