Analysing the mobility situation and developing scenarios of possible future mobility situations helps to set the goals for a city’s Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). To know where you want to go and how you're going to get there, you first need to know where you are currently standing.
Collecting evidence on the existing mobility conditions and ensuring availability of accurate data is the basis for SUMP development.
The City of Malmö present how they collect and use different data for planning their transport measures. Malmö combines several methods of collecting data, and recently piloted some innovative data collection methods based on a digital travel survey based on an app.
