The Czech city of Brno started developing its Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) in January 2014, when there were no national guidelines for planning authorities to follow. Supported by the EU-funded CH4LLENGE project, it carried out pilot activates to improve communication, participation and co-operation in local mobility planning.
Regional Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning for Functional Urban Areas: Improving Capacities to Lower CO2 Emissions
This workshop targets mobility planners (primarily regional authorities, city planners and public transport companies) with a view to exchanging knowledge and experience about integrated low-carbon mobility planning. It will raise participants’ capacities to set-up coordinated management structures in functional urban areas. Ultimately, through improved coordination, mobility planning and deployment of innovative technology, this workshop will contribute to emission and congestion reduction in Central Europe’s functional urban areas.
In order to decrease its fleet pollutant emissions, the public transport operator for the city of Brno, Dopravní podnik města Brna (DPMB), decided to purchase 88 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses. The procurement process started in March 2014 and the last of the 88 vehicles was delivered on 29 June 2015.
