In response to high demand, Act TravelWise is co-ordinating TravelWise Week 2018. The week-long campaign will be held at the same time as, and in co-operation with, European Mobility Week (EMW) - 16-22 September 2018. This year's theme is 'Mix and Move!', focusing on multi-modality - the mixing of transport modes within the same journey or for different trips. You are invited to get involved - whether you represent a local authority, transport operator, business, university, health care provider or even just as an individual. It's an opportunity to engage with the public and other partners broadly on the theme of transport and travel in a number of ways.
EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management - has released its May 2018 e-update on the topic of 'Neighbourhood-level Transport Innovations'. It addresses research, case studies, initiatives and strategies that actively involve residents in shaping their communities.
