The 2nd edition of the Guidelines for developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Planinfo-icon is available to download as a PDF document. 

Publication of the second edition of the European SUMP Guidelines marks an important milestone in the take-up of new planning approaches in Europe. This comprehensive revision aims to integrate the dynamic developments in many areas of urban mobilityinfo-icon and the rich experience of implementing the concept of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning since 2013. 

The revised guidelines are the result of an intense one-year stakeholder engagement process, coordinated by main authors Rupprecht Consult and led by a special Editorial Board, which includes DG MOVE, the CIVITAS SUMP projects, Eltis, INEA, DG REGIO, JASPERS, and leading mobility researchers. It has been developed and validated in close cooperation with the SUMP community. Starting with a large survey and dedicated session at the SUMP Conference 2018, a number of workshops with practitioners and other experts from all over Europe have taken place. By involving several major city networks closely in the update, special care was taken to include feedback from all types of cities and regions.

The SUMP poster (and any translations) based on the revised guidelines can also be found under tools here. The poster illustrates the sustainable planning process for transport in an urban area. It includes many crucial aspects of a sustainable mobility system and demonstrates all eight of the fundamental SUMP principles.


Help keep the Eltis City Database up-to-date

Many cities in Europe are already involved in EU activities to promote and apply the concept of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). Cities can add their SUMP - or make updates to the information about their city on the Eltis city database which provides the names of cities involved in such ongoing and completed urban mobility projects and initiatives. To add or amend your city entry please fill in the city database survey tool.
