The exciting potential of mobility management

22 June 2011  •  Author(s): Suvi Rihtniemi, Executive Director, Helsinki Regional Transport Authority (HSL)

HSL – Helsinki Regional Transport – plans and procures public transport services in the Helsinki region on behalf of its member municipalities. HSL is also responsible for strategic public transport planning and long-term transport system planning. Mobility management was included in HSL’s activities at the beginning of 2010 when the new joint local authority began its operations. HSL coordinates mobility management within 14 Helsinki region municipalities. The Finnish Transport Agency coordinates mobility management at national level on behalf of the Ministry of Transport and Communications. HSL also actively participates in national development projects.

Mobility management is about influencing people’s travel behaviour mainly through marketing and communications. It is also about making public transport and other sustainable modes of transport, like walking and cycling, as attractive as possible.
