Participation 2014

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
En octobre 2012, Tisséo-SMTC, l'autorité organisatrice des transports urbains de l'agglomération toulousaine a adopté un nouveau PDU (Plan des Déplacements Urbains). Dans le cadre de ce travail local collaboratif, la politique de mobilité urbaine et de transport public est définie jusqu'en 2020 avec pour objectif de réduire la place de la voiture individuelle. Aussi, la concertation publique et une campagne de sensibilisation ont été organisées pendant 7 semaines, fin 2011/ début 2012 afin d'offrir la possibilité aux habitants de l'agglomération de s'exprimer sur le projet de PDU.
D'importants moyens de communication (réunions publiques, tracts, brochures, magazine vidéo, etc.) ont été déployés au niveau local pour améliorer la compréhension et la sensibilisation sur le sujet (voir le mag Tisséo TV dédiée au PDU: www.tisseo.fr/ Tisséo-tv / 3940).
Ainsi, en 2012, Tisséo SMTC-a été récompensé en tant que finaliste de la 1ère édition du Prix européen SUMP portant sur la participation citoyenne dans le cadre du processus d'élaboration du PDU.
Le projet en cours de mise en œuvre est basé sur 9 thèmes principaux et 43 actions et toutes orientés sur l'amélioration de la qualité de vie urbaine pour les citoyens.

In October 2012, Tisséo-SMTC, public transport authority of the Greater Toulouse has voted a renewed SUMP. In that collaborative work, urban mobility and public transport policy is defined until 2020 with the objective of reducing the individual car use.
The public was entirely part of this process. Indeed, a citizens’ consultation (“Concertation Publique”) and awareness campaign has been organised during 7 weeks at the end of 2011/ beginning of 2012 to give the floor to Toulouse inhabitants on the draft SUMP project.
Important communication means (public meetings; leaflets; brochures; video magazine etc.) have been deployed at the local level to improve understanding and awareness (see the Tisseo TV mag dedicated to the SUMP project: www.tisseo.fr/tisseo-tv/3940).
In fact, in 2012, Tisséo-SMTC has been rewarded as finalist of the 1st edition of the SUMP award dealing with the citizens ‘participation into the SUMP process.
The project that is being implemented is based on 9 main themes and 43 actions and they are all focused on how to improve urban quality of life for citizens.
