Paper presented at the 25th Annual Southern African Transport Conference 10 - 13 July 2006 "2010: Will transport infrastructure and systems be ready?", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa. ABSTRACT: Mobility management (also called Transportation Demand Management) consists of policies and programs that result in more efficient travel behavior, including changes in trip mode, destination, route and time. Mobility management can provide multiple economic, social and environmental benefits. Many mobility management strategies reflect market principles; they correct existing market distortions that result in economically excessive automobile travel. Because they provide multiple benefits they offer opportunities for cooperation and coordination among various organizations and political interests. This paper describes mobility management strategies and how they can be incorporated into transport planning.
