4 Introduction – what? The mobility challenge for cities – increasing traffic, chronic congestion, air and noise pollution, increased traffic accidents against a background of global warming and the need to reduce carbon consumption Need to alter the balance of priorities from motorised vehicles to more sustainable and active modes.......The EcoMobility SHIFT project is establishing a process – to help cities to put a process in place to make the change to measure the effectiveness of the change to compare their achievements with other cities..........which will raise the international status of successful cities!

5 Introduction – who? An activity of the Global Alliance for EcoMobility Co-funded by the European Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) - part of its Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) program Taken forward by eight partners: ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, Edinburgh Napier University, Mobiel 21, Traject, Trivector Traffic, I-CE – Interface for Cycling Expertise, Municipality of Burgas and Municipality of Miskolc

8 Prerequisites for the scheme? A widely recognized & highly valued Ecomobility label for urban areas A user friendly Quality Management Scheme for mobility departments in local authorities so that they can understand where/why they are performing well and how they can improve So, the scheme should ideally: Cover process, outputs and outcomes Be dynamic ( change related ) & static ( measuring achievements ) Allow for comparison/benchmarking Award labels to recognise achievements in process, outputs and/or outcomes

9 Does this scheme already exist? Desktop review of about 25 schemes Focus on different aspects, e.g. use of indicators, functioning of QMS, labelling mechanisms, audit procedures, popularity Look at transport sector and beyond Expert interviews Inspiring list for SHIFT scheme..

16 Karin Neergaard, Trivector Traffic Carina Aschan, Sustainable Travel Umeå Region

17 Lund, test- audit, 2009 Region of Umeå, 2010 & 2011 Varberg, 2010 Helsingborg, 2011 Lund Helsingborg Varberg Umeå

18 MaxQ –4 components –12 elements (5-7 elements per component) For each element: up to 10 questions

19 Why MaxQ? The Region of Umeå New mobility management-team Wanted to know: Have we met our goals? How can we improve our work? Have we fulfilled the expectations from other key actors? Etc Varberg Worked with mobility management since 1999 Are stalling.. What to do now? Helsingborg..

20 The region of Umeå Evaluation of the MM process: MaxQ Evaluation of the MM effects: SUMO/MaxSumo

22 The MaxQ-process in Umeå 1. Kick-Off Meeting (Trivector & MM team Umeå) 2. MaxQ-questionnaire (MM-team answers individually) 3. Trivector analyze questionnaire and documents and prepare meeting 4. Consensus meeting 5. Interviews with partners (the region, the county council, swedish road and rail administration, the municipalities, the traffic operator) 6. Preliminary report to the MM-team 7. Presentation of the result (MM-team and partners) 8. Final report on Max Q-result (and in this case SUMO-results)

25 MaxQ result Overview (see chart) Identification of strengths and weaknesses Improvement suggestions

26 1.Activity-oriented policy: Ad hoc, short term approach 2.Process-oriented policy: Some knowledge about pre-conditions and needs. Single measures. 3.System-oriented policy: Same as level 2, but including policy, routines and organisation 4. Chain-oriented policy: Systematic analysis and evaluation of the MM work; long term commitments 5. Total Quality Management Continuous improvements; innovation; good results 0. No MM work at all Ladder of development (scale 0-5)

27 StrengthsWeaknessesImprovement suggestions Ambitions and intentions of sustainable travel/MM stated in business plan Business plan rooted in steering committee and politicians Clear organization: project managers, working group, steering committee Regular activities allocated to policymakers and others relating to mobility management Working group participates in local and national conferences and networks to share and exchange knowledge Knowledge and understanding of sustainable travel low for some Commitment and dissemination of work varies between stakeholders and partners Working group is not invited to important meetings that influence sustainable travel Steering committee and partners have no time or limited time to work internally on the issues. Increase knowledge of mobility management by elected representatives and officials Let all the partners'organizations participate in the project, Pilot scheme, to increase knowledge and understanding Integrate MM-plan with other municipal programs and plans, such as the use of four-stage principle

29 What did MaxQ produce? ( in the region of Umeå) The MM-team were amazed how the set of questions could identify their work and the strengths and weaknesses so precisely All (MM-team and partners) were strengthened by to see the final results, new energy! Telephone interviews with partners created immediate action by those who were interviewed... Improvement suggestions in the report were used as points for discussion at a steering group meeting. Many of the proposals were not the MM-teams responsibility. The responsibilities for proposals were divided among the partners. Many of the improvements are completed

30 Suggestion: ensure that within each municipality there is a responsible organization or individual to manage the MM-issues and increase the understanding of the need for mobility management within each organization. The call came from several directions and has become a regular item for discussion… We do not have to ask for more involvement anymore. Cooperation between municipalities strengthened, More people have been involved - MM proliferation. Suggestion: Use SUMO to support the planning of projects and for evaluation. SUMO became an aid when it was put into a context. Motivation to use SUMO on more activities

31 Suggestion: Important to involve mobility management in key decisions affecting the travel. Seek to ensure that the intentions and goals of the business plan are integrated with other municipal programs and plans. A call to all to work with mobility management MM – team are invited to strategic meetings, to projects in the planning stage Mobility management is on the agenda and the need for our knowledge has increased. Suggestion: discuss the importance of long term funding for the mobility management office. The evaluation report was an important subject when the decision was taken for continued funding of the MM-office. Our, and other new, projects got a different and improved organization.
