Mobility Measure

SUMP observatory and participation

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has already developed a SUMP (2009-2012) where a detailed diagnostic of the mobility was set up and the result was a set of strategic measures for urban mobility. Some of the SUMP measures have already been implemented while other are being developed nowadays.

 

This measure aims to create a Mobility Office to monitor and evaluate the implementation of the current SUMP, to update mobility patterns information and to carry out different mobility studies or actions and also the SUMP observatory will coordinate all projects addressed to improve the urban quality by promoting walking, cycling and public transport.

Implementing sustainable mobility

Objectives:

  • Increase the use of public transport, cycling and walking, by reducing the use of private cars.
  • Foster the investment in sustainable urban mobility projects.
  • Reduction of noise, emissions and fuel consumption.
  • Monitor and evaluate the performance indicators of the local SUMP.
  • Identify and analyze the mobility patterns of different targets groups (students, tourists, commuters, etc.)
  • To make studies about the public transport and other means of transport

 

How will this be achieved:

  • Once the Mobility Office is set up, technical studies will be carried out to improve public transport, parking management and other sustainable mobility measures in the city.
