The tool enables planning authorities to assess their plan's compliance with the European Union's SUMP concept and guidelines, both during the development of the plan and once the plan is completed.
The EcoMobility SHIFT scheme is a Total Quality Management system for cities to measure the performance of their urban transportation.
QUEST is a quality management tool developed to help cities to set up and further develop their sustainable mobility policies and to support processes in the city which lead to actual improvements
The ADVANCE project has developed guidelines and a questionnaire that cities can use to measures the performance of their SUMP. The guidelines show how the assessment process works at each step and includes detailed descriptions of all aspects of the audit.
You can find a range of sustainable urban mobility plan case studies from a variety of countries on the Mobility Plans Overview page. You can also search, sort and filter SUMP case studies by selecting the More mobility plan case studies link at the bottom of the Mobility Plan case studies column.
Additional sources of information and evidence on sustainable urban mobility best practice can be found on the following sites;
This website provides extensive information on the individual mobility measures tested in cities by the CIVITAS initiative. You can also search by thematic category.
It provides a large body of evidence to support an enhanced role for sustainable urban mobility in cities, addressing 22 types of urban mobility measures.
The CIVITAS Initiative has produced a toolkit designed to help local, regional, and national authorities to communicate with transport users. It contains materials for the development of a strategic communications plan, the organisation of events, and the development and dissemination of printed and online media materials.
In this report, the WBCSD sets out the results of a piece of work to develop a comprehensive set of sustainable mobility indicators for cities. These will also allow cities to understand the evolution of the system over time, and measure the improvements resulting from the implementation of new mobility practices or policies.
This technical note, published by the European Commission, uses the expert scoring information available in current scientific literature in order to explore the impacts and effects that different urban measures may have in planning for sustainability on a European-wide level.
The TIDE project has produced a guidebook to 15 innovative transport measures, including pricing strategies, non-motorised transport, traffic management for traveller information, electric mobility, and organising public transport. Each measure includes key information about its characteristics, benefits and examples of current good practice.
The EVIDENCE project has reviewed a range of material exploring the economic benefits of 'more sustainable' mobility-related interventions with potential to be deployed in urban areas.
JASPERS organised nine local training workshops on sustainable urban mobility planning between September 2016 and February 2017.
