Mobility Management as an integrative part of urban and transport planning

Cities are constantly changing: new urban districts are created, existing districts get new functions and new inhabitants.
Mobility is also subject to continuous change and redevelopment. One basis of mobility is the infrastructural city network - often created for other purposes then today’s usage.
The development of expensive new transport infrastructure, often with increased space requirements is mostly restricted by budget limits and frequently causes friction and conflict amongst city users, residents and interest groups.
Mobility Management can thus act as an effective tool to harmonise specific problems related to the consistent change in our mobility, work and leisure activities.                                            SUBTOPIC: Mobility for all generations - in an aging society

A major result of today’s excellent public health is the ever increasing age of our society. Consequentially, mobility requirements of today’s over-sixties are totally different than they were some 20 years ago.
Due to the fact that increasingly the people of that age group are active car drivers with lots of time to spare means that sustainable mobility is facing a formidable challenge. Moreover, the group of old and very old persons with impaired mobility is also rapidly growing.

How does Mobility Management react to the challenge of the ageing society? How can it address all generations?
