All are invited to submit feedback on a SUMP Topic Guide draft on mobility management until 13 December 2022.
How can we ensure that an increasing urban population does not translate into more traffic, congestion and pollution in European cities? Mobility management offers a set of ‘soft solutions’ that influence and shift mobility behaviours and attitudes to address this question in ways that can be easily adapted to promote sustainable transport in different local contexts.
To support better integration of mobility management into SUMPs, the CIVITAS ELEVATE Policy Support Group – which consists of experts from six organisations, the CIVITAS Policy Advisory Committee, and a group of stakeholders from the mobility management sector – has put together a draft SUMP Topic Guide on Integrating Mobility Management. The draft is now open for public consultation.
The main objective of this Topic Guide is to provide guidance to urban mobility practitioners, policy makers, and both public and private employers who wish to implement mobility management measures in their jurisdictions. It focuses on the integration of mobility management into Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) to achieve a modal shift towards more sustainable modes of transport. It explores how transport planning can better include mobility management for urban development, public authorities, companies, the education sector, as well as the tourism and leisure sectors.
For each of these areas, the Topic Guide proposes a selection of key recommendations (checklist) and includes a variety of good practice examples from across Europe, highlighting the benefits of better integrating mobility management into SUMPs.
The public is warmly invited to participate in the consultation process. Public consultation is an important step of the process, as it allows stakeholders to contribute to the development of the Guide, as well as ensure that it is relevant to all urban mobility actors.
Feedback can be sent via email to Vanessa Holve (TRT) at holve [at] trt [dot] it until Tuesday, 13 December 2022 at 17:00 CET.
