Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI) are now available

The European Commission has developed a comprehensive set of indicators to support cities and regions in evaluating their mobility systems and measuring policy success.

Urban areas across Europe- and beyond- are endeavouring to expand and enhance their transport infrastructure to tackle short- and long-term urban mobility challenges. However, in order to do so, local authorities must first identify their strengths and weaknesses. The European Commission’s sustainable urban mobility indicators are a useful tool for facilitating this process, assisting with the continued development of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) and work towards EU policy goals.

The markers include 13 core, and 5 non-core indicators, covering traffic safety, pollution, multimodal integration, accessibility and more.

The framework also includes a benchmarking tool which exhibits how European cities are performing according to each indicator. This instrument not only reveals best practices, but also ensures the transparency and clarity necessary for comprehensive and sustainable improvements in mobility services.
