The project BENEFIT assists public and private companies, as well as their employees, to switch from the private car to public transport.
The objective of COMMERCE is to work with businesses in the EU, particularly SMEs, to reduce the harmful environmental effects of unnecessary car use on the journey to work. COMMERCE will facilitate the uptake of Workplace Travel Plans by establishing concrete partnerships between local authority actors and businesses across Europe, enabling mentoring and the exchange of expertise. Two 'leader', four 'learner' cities and EPOMM will drive the project.
EPOMM is the European Platform on Mobility Management, a network of governments in European countries that are engaged in Mobility Management (MM). They are represented by the Ministries that are responsible for MM in their countries. EPOMM is organised as an international non profit organisation with seat in Brussels.
OPTIMUM2 is a European project that has as its primary aim the improvement of the accessibility of busy locations in urban areas. OPTIMUM2 stands for "Optimal Planning Through Implementation of Mobility Management". The reason for starting the project is the increasing traffic congestion at busy locations in urban areas. Building new roads and adding more parking space is often neither possible nor desirable. The result is locations that are hard to reach and traffic flooding into the surrounding neighbourhoods. Attempts to limit the use of cars have as of yet not had the hoped-for result.
