Sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) provides an approach to dealing with the complex urban transport problems across Europe. The new guide offers insight to planners in cities with a population of less than 100,000 and is now newly published in Hungarian to increase accessibility further.
Translated and published by Magyar CIVINET, the guide will support cities in developing more and better SUMPs. Eltis shares, “Smaller cities and towns often have fewer resources and expertise for strategic mobility planning, making it more difficult to develop SUMPs. They also tend to have a stronger car dependency and weaker public transport, which can make it feel even more daunting to pursue a sustainable vision. On the other hand, smaller cities and towns often have well-connected social communities and more walkable and bikeable distances, offering ideal opportunities for sustainable mobility.”
