The Guidelines for developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (also known as the SUMP Guidelines) were originally published in 2013.
Since then, many cities in Europe and around the world have developed SUMPs. However, since 2013, there have been significant changes in urban mobility which have created new challenges for practitioners to address. Technological advances and the willingness of the general public to enthusiastically adopt new transport modes – moving from the traditional private car ownership model to new types of shared (e)mobility – have provided a rapidly changing backdrop for urban mobility practitioners and stakeholders to manage.
The second edition of the SUMP Guidelines has taken on board the dynamic and rapidly evolving urban mobility challenges following extensive stakeholder consultation and contributions from experts. In addition, the authors have produced a number of new thematic guides and practitioner briefings to further aid in the development and implementation of SUMPs.
Eltis has also produced a series of video clips, introducing the revisions, hearing from thematic guide authors and helping viewers to understand who can use the revised guidelines and also explain the 8 key SUMP principles.
