A new planning paradigm: from integrated planning, policy and mobility management to repair, regeneration and renewal

ByPreston L. Schiller, Jeffrey R. Kenworthy

A key ingredient of a new paradigm is better management and maximization of the benefits of transportation programs, services and infrastructure. The new paradigm is based upon the interaction of: integrated policy and planning, and mobility management, several important 'background' factors that need to inform policy and planning, and the development of appropriate infrastructure, techniques and technology. The implications of implementing a new planning paradigm and mobility management are enormous. Mobility management is recognized as an important component of congestion reduction, energy conservation, emissions reduction, public health and community redevelopment programs. Mobility management includes a variety of specific strategies that tend to fall into five major categories: improving and expanding travel options; and priorities for transit and efficient modes as incentives for use. It also includes land-use solutions to transportation problems such as smart growth multi-modal development; programmed implementation; and new ways of integrating approaches and options 'Mobility as a Service'.
