Urban mobility planning

Subscribe to RSS - Urban mobility planning

Good planning helps choosing and designing the right measures, or packages of measures, for a city’s particular transport context, and getting them off the ground.

A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) – a strategic plan designed to satisfy the mobility needs of people and businesses in cities and their surroundings for a better quality of life - can play a big role in this regard. To discover more about these plans, visit the dedicated Mobility Plans section on Eltis.

Bristol invites public to imagine, and then decide on, the future of their city

There is no one path to realising more sustainable mobility, as evident by the wide-variety of transport measures on offer that can lower emissions, reduce pollution and create greener urban areas. But with limited budgets and the knowledge that infrastructural change can majorly alter the character of a city, how should local leaders prioritise one measure over another? And how can citizens be involved in this decision making process, granting them a real sense of ownership over the process?

EC Urban Mobility Video

The Urban Mobility Video is a three-minute film that explains the approach of the European Commission about urban mobility. It starts with a problem-setting part in which, without voice-over, difficult urban mobility situation are shown in slow motion: a cyclist hit by a car, a woman in a crowded bus that has to brake suddenly, a man in his car who can't stand the traffic jams, emissions and noise anymore, pedestrians who do not have enough space to walk on the pavement etc.

Urban Mobility Days Conference 2022

Urban Mobility Days 2022 – Save the date!

The date and location for the 2022 edition of Urban Mobility Days have now been confirmed. The conference will take place on 20-22 September in Brno, Czech Republic.

Following in the footsteps of previous successful conferences, this year’s theme is “Moving people and goods more sustainably”.

If we are to achieve ambitious climate targets, transforming urban mobility will be critical.
