Measuring the performance of an urban transport system is important for establishing measures and policies for improving its quality. This is particularly important in terms of improving the energy efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of transport.
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.
