A series of fact sheets chronicling good practice examples of measures, instruments and planning procedures related to Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) are now available to read.

The fact sheets give details of projects that have taken place in the seven partner cities of the CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project. Partner cities are Birmingham (UK), Budapest (Hungary), Donostia-San Sebastian (Spain), Malmö (Sweden), Sofia (Bulgaria), Thessaloniki (Greece) and Turin (Italy).

In Birmingham, they examine the implementation of a Clean Air Zone and a new road space allocation policy. In Budapest, the documents look at interactive two-way communication with decision-makers and an integrated transportation demand management framework for road users.

In Donostia-San Sebastián, readers can find out about flexible use of (public) spaces and interactive maps for cycling and walking, whilst in Malmö they can find out about a new travel survey technique, regional cooperation to develop a Poly-SUMP, and the city’s advanced model for forecasting traffic.

In Sofia, two platforms are in the spotlight, one for active citizen participation and one for data collection and exchange.

Moving to Thessaloniki, the fact sheets explore funding SUMP measures through private entrepreneurship and ways to measure the development, implementation, progress and impacts of SUMPs.

Finally, Turin’s fact sheets reveal the city’s new sustainable urban freight logistics measures and how a new Mobility as a Service scheme is providing integrated access to city mobility services.

These good practices should encourage and support SUMP uptake and development throughout Europe’s SUMP community.
