Urban mobility planning

Subscribe to RSS - Urban mobility planning

Good planning helps choosing and designing the right measures, or packages of measures, for a city’s particular transport context, and getting them off the ground.

A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) – a strategic plan designed to satisfy the mobility needs of people and businesses in cities and their surroundings for a better quality of life - can play a big role in this regard. To discover more about these plans, visit the dedicated Mobility Plans section on Eltis.

Standards for Developing a SUMP Action Plan

A report from the CIVITAS SUMPS-Up project provides city planners with the step-by-step know-how necessary to develop SUMP action plans. Furthermore, it takes into account different levels of SUMP development experience and SUMP maturity among cities.

The report contains guidance in terms of what to include in an action plan, including responsibilities, resources, stakeholder coordination, time plans, and funding sources.

In addition, it breaks down the process of developing an action plan into a six-step process, with the final stage of this an implementation plan.

Bristol invites public to imagine, and then decide on, the future of their city

There is no one path to realising more sustainable mobility, as evident by the wide-variety of transport measures on offer that can lower emissions, reduce pollution and create greener urban areas. But with limited budgets and the knowledge that infrastructural change can majorly alter the character of a city, how should local leaders prioritise one measure over another? And how can citizens be involved in this decision making process, granting them a real sense of ownership over the process?

EC Urban Mobility Video

The Urban Mobility Video is a three-minute film that explains the approach of the European Commission about urban mobility. It starts with a problem-setting part in which, without voice-over, difficult urban mobility situation are shown in slow motion: a cyclist hit by a car, a woman in a crowded bus that has to brake suddenly, a man in his car who can't stand the traffic jams, emissions and noise anymore, pedestrians who do not have enough space to walk on the pavement etc.

Policy Brief on Urban Mobility Adaptation to Climate Change

'Urban Mobility Adaptation to Climate Change' is the topic of the fourth Policy Brief issued by the Urban Transports Community.

This policy brief describes the main impacts of climate change on urban mobility and suggests possible solutions to minimise its impacts. It aims to raise awareness among policymakers and provide urban planners with an overview of what will be the impact of climate change on Mediterranean cities with a particular focus on mobility issues.
