CIVITAS Case Study – Exploring integrated mobility planning in Ljubljana

In recent years, issues surrounding increasing car dependency, congestion, air pollution and lower quality of life have made Ljubljana realise that its transport planning needed a revised approach. Traditionally, although transport strategies were included in spatial plans with the objective of reaching a more sustainable transport, the reality was very different. Therefore, Ljubljana decided to prepare a comprehensive sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMP) within CIVITAS. The plan is the first SUMP developed in Slovenia, and even though it was not formally adopted, it changed the perception of transport in the city and in the entire country.
