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. 

Key SUMPs-Up publications are now available in five new languages

Four of SUMPs-Up’s most important publications for mobility practitioners are now available in other languages for the first time! Three manuals on SUMP measure selection and a report giving guidance on developing a SUMP action plan are available in French, German, Hungarian, Italian and Spanish.


Annex to new edition of EU SUMP Guidelines now available

The annex to the Guidelines for Developing and Implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (second edition) is now available to read and download. This complements the original document with a collection of 63 case studies, a SUMP glossary, and SUMP activity checklists.
