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.

5th edition of the European Mobility Days in Strasbourg

Climate, environment, economy, health: every field has been affected by various crises. While we are still suffering from the health crisis due to the Covid pandemic, the war in Ukraine reveals the underlying energy crisis, while the environmental crisis is getting increasingly critical.

Mobility, an essential component of our societies, is also affected by these crises, and transport actors have to mitigate their effects by adapting and transforming mobility systems.

Eskişehir, Known as Turkey's College Town, Prepares its Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan

The rapid change and transformation of the world with the unpredictable urban growth brought on by densely populated cities of the last century have given rise to many social, environmental, economic and political problems. Although the city administrations want to solve issues such as climate change, increasing energy consumption, increasing poverty, and a lack of financing, these issues are usually handled one by one.
