One of the key initial things to occur as part of the SUMPs-Up project was a needs assessment survey.

Its results will be documented in the report “User needs analysis for take-up”, which will be completed in Summer 2017. This will distinguish thematic priorities and common urban mobility planning objectives and challenges and group them according to specific needs and implementation issues.

Qualitative data from focus group meetings and interviews will be integrated into the report. In addition, a city profile matrix will offer an overview of cities that share similar characteristics in numerous areas, including present mobility patterns; goals and objectives for future mobility; current conditions in the city; challenges; and relative experience of mobility planning.

These city profiles will lay the foundation for tailored bundles of measures and policies consistent with local challenges.
