Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI)

Sustainable urban mobility indicators are a useful tool for cities and urban areas to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their mobility system and to focus on areas for improvement. As cities and urban areas continue to develop Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) and work towards EU policy goals, it is important for this progress to be documented to ensure that such achievements become visible.

The European Commission has therefore developed a comprehensive set of practical and reliable indicators that support cities to perform a standardised evaluation of their mobility system and to measure improvements that result from new mobility practices or policies. The indicators are officially endorsed by the European Commission and based on the “SMP2.0 Sustainable Mobility Indicators” developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

The project tested the indicators in 50 European cities. Mobilissimus, as the Urban Area Coach for Hungary, provided professional support to Budapest (BKK) and Szeged in data collection and processing, and in calculating the indicators. The experiences and feedback from the cities were passed on to the consortium to fine-tune the methodology of the indicators.
