New tool to support sustainable urban mobility planning

By Lewis Macdonald / Updated: 10 Feb 2016

A new tool that helps urban mobility professionals to analyse different combinations of sustainable urban mobility measures is being launched this spring.

The Urban Transport Roadmap policy tool, commissioned by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport, is designed to help cities deliver on the goals of their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs)

The tool is being revealed at the 3rd European Conference on SUMPs in Bremen (Germany) on 13 April 2016.

The ability to compare different mobility scenarios will be of great help to transport planners, and will allow them to forecast the impact of measures and understand whether they are the best solution to the challenges they face.

The tool focuses on transport scenarios and roadmaps for implementation that are feasible and practical.

The launch of the tool will be kicked-off with a free event after the conclusion of the 3rd European Conference on SUMPs.

Members of the Urban Transport Roadmap project, the European Commission, and representatives of European cities will discuss the importance of scenario-building and how it can improve local mobility policy and planning.

Participants at the event will then be able to try the tool themselves at a reception in the evening.
