“Sustainable transport and SUMPs”


A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) is a strategic plan designed to satisfy the mobility needs of people and businesses in cities and their surroundings for a better quality of life, on a long term vision. The policies and measures defined in a SUMP cover all modes and forms of transport in the entire urban agglomeration, including public and private, passenger and freight, motorised and non-motorised, moving and parking. A SUMP grows on the principles of integration, participation, and evaluation principles following a transparent and participatory approach.

Participatory planning is a prerequisite for citizens and stakeholders to take ownership of the SUMP and the policies it promotes. It makes public acceptance and support more likely and thus minimises risks for decision-makers and facilitates the plan implementation.

The presentation explores the importance of SUMPs and the integration of new transport technologies in the development of transport effectiveness and efficiency, and the role of these factors in the achievement of the sustainability policy targets set by the EU.
