Developing effective packages of measures for SUMPs: Budapest (Hungary)

English

When selecting the measures to be included in its SUMP, Budapest's transport operator, Budapesti Közlekedési Központ (BKK), tested out a number of new approaches in the processes involved in making the decisions. Various parties were consulted at national and international level, whilst best practice examples were sought from other European cities. Software was then used to evaluate the choices made. The Balázs Mór Plan (BMT) is Budapest's first transport development strategy based on SUMP methodology, and its integrated approach places the focus on people and the environment.

Workshop: Urban Roadmaps Tool

The CIVITAS Prosperity and European Urban Transport Roadmaps 2030 projects invite you to a training workshop on the Urban Transport Roadmaps online scenario-building tool.

The tool, commissioned by DG MOVE, is designed to support cities in exploring alternative transport scenarios/roadmaps and translating their vision on sustainable urban mobility into a concrete set of actions for their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).

EVIDENCE Project Final Workshop

23 February, 14B Rue de La Science, Brussels

The EVIDENCE project is a strategic initiative funded by EACI to investigate the economic evidence for sustainable urban mobility measures.

This final workshop will present the findings and recommendations from the project, look at how the evidence has been used in cities and campaigns, and investigate the barriers to integration of sustainable mobility.

It will finish with a look at the gaps in the evidence, new forms of mobility to be investigated and how best to implement the evidence.

Economic benefits of sustainable mobility interventions

The EVIDENCE project has reviewed a range of material exploring the economic benefits of 'more sustainable' mobility-related interventions with potential to be deployed in urban areas.

This document (available to download below) brings together short summaries of the results of that exercise for each of 22 categories of intervention, or measure as they are termed here. The Measure Summaries contained in the document cover the following topics:

NISTO Evaluation Toolkit User Guide

The NISTO toolkit has been designed for transport planners, local and regional authorities, researchers and non-governmental organisations who want to appraise different options to solve a mobility-related problem in the urban or regional context.

It is particularly suited for the early assessment of alternatives when detailed data is not yet available about the impacts of the interventions. The NISTO evaluation toolkit can be used to evaluate small-scale mobility projects for sustainability and stakeholder preferences and monitor policy targets.

CIVITAS Training: Evaluating and upscaling urban mobility projects

Trialling innovative transport and mobility measures is a valuable way to gain an understanding of technical feasibility, user acceptance, and impact.

However, there are often challenges involved in increasing the scale of a measure and deploying it more widely.
