The EU guidelines for Sustainable Urban Mobility


The 2nd edition of the Guidelines for developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan is available to download as a PDF document. 

Publication of the second edition of the European SUMP Guidelines marks an important milestone in the take-up of new planning approaches in Europe. This comprehensive revision aims to integrate the dynamic developments in many areas of urban mobility and the rich experience of implementing the concept of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning since 2013.

The revised guidelines are the result of an intense one-year stakeholder engagement process, coordinated by main authors Rupprecht Consult and led by a special Editorial Board, which includes DG MOVE, the CIVITAS SUMP projects, Eltis, INEA, DG REGIO, JASPERS, and leading mobility researchers. It has been developed and validated in close cooperation with the SUMP community. Starting with a large survey and dedicated session at the SUMP Conference 2018, a number of workshops with practitioners and other experts from all over Europe have taken place. By involving several major city networks closely in the update, special care was taken to include feedback from all types of cities and regions.
