Implementation methodologies

Pas-Port to Urban Mobility establishes a portal with 9 websites and a search engine that connect relevant elements for urban mobility planning.
The idea of connecting horizontally relevant parties and interests in 9 portals is widely considered worthwhile to pursue. The connection between the 9 domains gives a deeper insight into the possibilities for realization of sustainable urban mobility planning.
The Search Engine will be the connecting Tool between the websites in Pas-Port to Mobility and will be fully available and for free to cities and others who seek connections. Looking for policy documents will not just provide them with these documents, but will also give insight in relevant news and developments, in a wide range of relevant advisory groups, available products and more. The portal will provide direct and intuitive links for cities that:
• want to improve mobility and quality of life for their citizens
• like to prepare this well and set focused goals
• insist to execute the chosen policy in an efficient way
• need to have a broad overview about available services and products
• require to be able to evaluate and correct their policies
• wish to make use of latest insights.
