The approaches to sustainable urban mobility planning vary quite widely throughout Europe. The Baltic Sea Region Competence Centre on SUMP brings together the knowledge and good examples of sustainable urban mobility planning from the countries around the Baltic Sea.
The Good Examples database includes examples of complete plans that can be considered as SUMPs as well as examples of different elements of the mobility planning process that are relevant for SUMPs. Both, cities with a lot of experience with integrated planning approaches and cities initiating the SUMP process can learn from the examples.
Accessibility studies conducted in the Helsinki Region helped to develop a Transport System Plan to support the use of more sustainable modes of transport and set the framework for future development.
During the SUMP process, the city of Liepaja decided to improve the air quality monitoring and assessment procedures and feed the information into the new mobility plans.
The city of Tartu prepared a sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMP) as a part of the Bustrip project. During the preparation process, Tartu carried our stakeholder cooperation seminars and working groups.
One of the main objectives of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan is to offer all citizens such transport op-tions that enable access to key destinations and services. The balance between professional groups, different age groups, gender and accessibility was kept in mind in the SUMP process in Vilnius.
