Abstract

AN INNOVATIVE TOOL TO INVOLVE DECISION-MAKERS, COMPANIES AND EMPLOYEES IN A NEW MOBILITY THINKING

An innovative mobility management tool has been developed, capable of influencing people’s daily mobility choices and leading them to adopt environmentally and economically sustainable behaviours. This tool also acts as a “nudge” for companies to adopt a mobility management approach, and plays a central role in supporting city planners.
