Cleaner and better transport in cities

With over 70% of EU citizens currently living in urban areas, urban mobility has a huge influence on the quality of life that they have. Yet traffic congestion, bad air quality, and inefficient transport systems continue to impact upon lives across the continent.

An approach is required that places citizens' needs first. By improving accessibility to, through and within urban areas and encouraging a shift towards more sustainable modes of transport, Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans do exactly this. Both cities and their inhabitants enjoy significant economic and environmental benefits.

As they integrate practices and policies from other sectors, SUMPs also help transport measures correspond with wider urban development plans. Transport then actively contributes to cities' efforts to become more sustainable and liveable. In doing so, SUMPs-Up fulfils its ultimate aim: to improve citizens' quality of life. 

The SUMP Registry is here: discover SUMPs from Europe and beyond

This new online database from the CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project brings together up-to-date SUMPs from across Europe and beyond, cities spanning all sizes, and in many languages. To find the plan most relevant to your needs, you can search by country, population, and language. If you want to showcase your SUMP, you also have the option to upload it.
