New fact sheets from across Europe share best practice knowledge on Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning

20 December 2019

A new series of fact sheets chronicling good practice examples of measures, instruments and planning procedures related to Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) are now available.

Fact sheets draw on the expereinces of Birmingham (United Kingdom), Budapest (Hungary), Donostia-San Sebastian (Spain), Malmö (Sweden), Sofia (Bulgaria), Thessaloniki (Greece), and Turin (Italy).

In Birmingham, fact sheets examine lessons learnt from the implementation of a Clean Air Zone and a new road space allocation policy. In Budapest, the documents look at interactive two-way communication with decision makers and an integrated transportation demand management framework for road users, whilst in Malmö readers can learn about a new travel survey technique, regional cooperation to develop a "poly-centric" SUMP, and the city’s advanced model for forecasting traffic.

Other fact sheets further examine topics such as a data collection and exchange platform, sustainable urban freight logistics measures, flexible use of spaces, and using interactive maps for cycling and walking.

Fact sheets were designed and shared through the SUMPs-Up project – each of the cities profiled is a partner in the project. The good practices overviewed aim to encourage and support the uptake of sustainable urban mobility planning across Europe.
