About Urban Mobility Partnership
The Urban Mobility Partnership (UMP) is a coalition committed to providing long-term leadership and near-term solutions to improve future urban mobility. Our innovative partnership represents the breadth of the urban mobility landscape.
We were founded to ensure that effective policy at a national, regional and local level, combined with new technology, supports better mobility and helps tackle the major challenges of congestion, air quality and climate change.

Mobility as a Service:
A Practical Guide
UMP has created a concise Mobility as a Service (MaaS) guide for public authorities and citizens. Through extensive collaboration within our membership, we’re eager to share our expertise with policymakers and public authorities. Our guide introduces MaaS, outlines local authorities’ diverse approaches to establishing sustainable MaaS ecosystems, and aligns with residents’ social, economic, and environmental goals, including net-zero ambitions.
Focus on case STUDIES
Stagecoach delivers modal shift through flexible bus tickets
Stagecoach introduces flexible bus tickets in response to changing travel habits during the pandemic and rising living costs. The new Flexi day tickets come in bundles of five or ten, usable within 12 months of purchase, offering up to 30% savings on regular fares. This benefits employees in hybrid work setups. Data indicates that 53% of people are using buses more due to Flexi tickets, reducing car trips and attracting new bus riders.
Transforming Corporate Travel and Commuting
Last year the Urban Mobility Partnership launched its policy paper on Transforming Corporate Travel and Commuting through a series of roundtables across the UK. The paper calls for businesses and public sector organisations to urgently reduce grey fleet usage in line with decarbonisation agendas and examines the problems of relying on personal private car usage for business travel, otherwise known as “grey fleet”, and offers key recommendations on how to reduce this and offer employees sustainable alternatives. UMP is committed to help develop mobility solutions which help these towns and cities transform how consumers travel. Read our recommendations below.
