SUMP Glossary

By Admin Eltis / Updated: 01 Oct 2019

The Glossary provides brief explanations of specialist words, terms and abbreviations relating to the subject of sustainable urban mobility planning, including:

  • a general definition and, where available, a specific definition relating to transport and mobility planning;
  • an explanation of why the term is relevant to sustainable urban mobility planning; and
  • references to sources, which are listed here.

The selection of terms and drafting of definitions has been informed by a review of relevant reports, guidance documents and existing glossaries. The key reference is the publication “Guidelines - Developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan”, European Commission (January 2014) and therefore this has not been identified as a source throughout the document.

The Glossary was prepared by Rupprecht Consult and reviewed by project partners in the context of the CH4LLENGE project.
