As the urban transport environment continues to evolve, micromobility is changing how people move around the city. It brings along new and urgent challenges for urban planners, local authorities and national decision-makers.
In response to this, the first Policy Support Group of the CIVITAS ELEVATE Coordination and Support Action(link is external) has prepared a draft SUMP Topic Guide that focuses on micromobility in the SUMP planning and implementation process.
The Topic Guide proposes best practice and key recommendations for the integration of micromobility in urban mobility planning, with the goal of supporting cities in achieving safer use of micromobility devices in urban areas. The best practices and recommendations written wherein support the European Commission in the delivery of Action 22 of the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.
With the launch of the draft Topic Guide, the public is invited to participate in a consultation process, which will allow stakeholders to contribute to the development of the Guide, as well as ensure that it is relevant to all urban mobility actors.
The draft document is available for download here, as well as below.
Feedback can be sent to by to Vanessa Holve at holve [at] trt [dot] it until Friday 29 October 2021 at 17:00.
The Policy Support Group includes experts from selected cities and organisations (TRL, European Transport Safety Council, POLIS, the City of Paris and the City of Helsinki), the chair of the CIVITAS Policy Advisory Committee(link is external) (City of Antwerp) and CIVITAS ELEVATE consortium members TRT and Breda University of Applied Sciences.
