1. What is a sustainable urban mobility plan?

SUMP guidelines coverBasically, a sustainable urban mobility plan is a strategic plan designed to satisfy the mobility needs of people and businesses in cities and their surroundings for a better quality of life. Rather than being created as a new separate plan, an SUMP builds on existing planning practices and policies, giving particular attention to integration, participation, and ongoing evaluation.

A sustainable urban mobility plan is a long-term, ongoing process that requires a lot of effort but brings better results than "traditional" transport planning.
