Three new manuals give advice on SUMP measure selection

Crucial to SUMP development and implementation is the systematic and judicious selection of SUMP measures and knowledge of how to combine them effectively. A series of manuals is now available and focus on this vital topic.

Three different city profiles are covered, with each having a different level of experience and expertise in the development of mobility policies and measures.

  • Cities not yet familiar with sustainable urban transport; they need basic information on how to start SUMP-related policy development;
  • Cities that have applied measures but non-systematically; they need information on how to package measures and use them more strategically to achieve synergies;
  • Cities with transport plans in individual policy areas, such as cycling, wanting to adopt a more integrated planning approach; they need advice on how measures link to other fields and using planning documents more strategically.

The manuals provide guidance on identifying appropriate SUMP measures, along with how to enhance selected mobility fields. They also contain recommendations, rating systems for priorities of measures, and checklists tailored to each city type.

Using this information as a basis, cities will develop their ability to create road maps for their own SUMP measure development. To read the manuals, click here.
