The Disruption project has produced a brochure describing the concept of Fleximobility that came out of the project.
The brochure is available here:

The Disruption project will be arriving en masse at the Annual Transport Practitioners Meeting in London on 1st and 2nd July 2015.
The project will be giving four presentations covering different aspects of the project as well as running a workshop covering the overall ‘Fleximobility’ concept that we have generated from the project.
The presentations will be:
Responses and adaptability to disrupted travel patterns – a questionnaire study (Jillian Anable, Thomas Budd and Tim Chatterton)
Spatial, temporal and social factors in everyday mobility and modal choice – 3 years of ethnographic studies (Noel Cass and James Faulconbridge)
Disruption as it happens – a selection of responsive case studies (Greg Marsden and Jeremy Shires)
Defining and delivering sustainable transport: who has the power to change the way we travel? (David Williams)
On 13th May, Tim spent the afternoon at Wiltshire County Council, running a workshop for transport and land-use planners and elected members exploring the Fleximobility concept in the setting of a predominantly rural local authority.
Here is a 28 minute presentation by Prof. Greg Marsden on the Flexi-mobility concept and the research and data behind it. This was recorded at a workshop in Leeds in February 2015.
On 12th February, Caroline, Tim, Jillian and Iain held a workshop in Glasgow to test and develop the ‘Flexi-mobility’ concept. The afternoon was attended by a range of transport practitioners, including representatives from Transport Scotland, Glasgow City Council Living Streets and Abelio.
Again, the reaction of practitioners was that the concept of flexi-mobility helped to think about the problems of implementing sustainable transport in a new and helpful manner.
On 30th January, Greg, Caroline and Tim spent the afternoon with York City Council, holding a workshop for members of the transport team to test and develop the ‘Flexi-mobility’ concept.
The workshop generated a lot of useful and productive discussion around the concept, and it was generally thought of to be a useful and constructive contribution towards the sustainable transport debate.
On 15th December, Tim gave a presentation at UWE on ‘Flexi-mobility: Helping LAs Unlock Low Carbon Travel’, and David gave one on “Social Practice Theory and Sustainable Mobility: An Analysis of the English Local Transport Planning as a System of Provision” as part of the Centre for Transport and Society’s annual Winter conference at the University of the West of England.
On 9th December, Tim gave a presentation on Flexi-mobility at the ActTravelWise annual conference in Birmingham.

On 25th of February, Tim was invited to give a presentation on the Flexi-mobility conference to Bristol City Council’s transport team.
