About the project

Although it has proven beneficial to fostering sustainable urban mobility in cities, good parking management remains one of the most underdeveloped policy areas linked to Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).

Park4SUMP aims to change this by considering parking management as part of wider urban development strategies and, in turn, as something that not only benefits urban mobility but also enhances the overall quality of life in cities. Good parking management can help free up public space, support local businesses, reduce journey times, generate revenue, and ultimately make cities more attractive.

In Park4SUMP, 16 cities have teamed up to demonstrate and transfer the benefits of strategically and smartly managed parking. Five Leading Cities - Vitoria Gasteiz (Spain), Rotterdam (the Netherlands), Freiburg (Germany), Krakow (Poland) and Trondheim (Norway) - will share their knowledge of barriers to and enablers of effective parking policy with 11 Follower Cities from across Europe. This intense exchange will inspire cities to act and promote mutual learning, regardless of experience.

The Follower Cities are Sint-Niklaas (Belgium), Slatina (Romania), Sofia (Bulgaria), Tallinn (Estonia), Zadar (Croatia), Shkodra (Albania), Lisboa (Portugal), Gdansk (Poland), La Rochelle (France), Reggio Emilia (Italy), and Umeå (Sweden). Visit the Park4SUMP website for details.
