Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning is the European Union’s urban transport planning concept. The support of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) was already part of the measures of the Action Plan on Urban Mobility (2009), has been defined more concretely in the Annex of the Urban Mobility Package (2013). At the same time, the first version of the Guidelines – Developing and Implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan was released.
„Over the last few years, we have seen major new developments in many areas of urban mobility. […] In addition, a wealth of SUMP implementation experience has been collected that needed to be made available as inspiration for practitioners across Europe. Finally, several projects and initiatives were about to develop additional guidance on specific planning topics; this had to be integrated to begin forming a structured knowledge base.”
Therefore, the process to update SUMP guidance was started in 2018, led by Rupprecht Consult. The process included the wide involvement of stakeholders; the experts of Mobilissimus also contributed to the elaboration of the document at several consultation workshops. The new Guidelines were presented in the Autumn of 2019.
The Hungarian edition has been created in 2020 in the cooperation of KTI Institute for Transport Sciences and Mobilissimus (as the licensee of the Hungarian translation), with the support of the Hungarian Ministry for Innovation and Technology, within the project ‘The impact analysis and further development of the guidance for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) in Hungary’. As part of this, Mobilissimus performed the professional quality control of the translation and publication.
