Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans

Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning is the most important topic in the Commission's Urban Mobility Package.

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan concept considers the functional urban area and foresees that plans are developed in cooperation across different policy areas and sectors, across different levels of government and administration and in cooperation with citizens and other stakeholders.

The Commission has actively promoted this concept for several years. Guidelines were developed, which provide local authorities with a clear framework for the development and implementation of such a plan. However, Member States need to promote those practices at national level and to ensure the right legislative and support conditions for their local authorities.

The Commission will continue to support the development of such plans including through funding instruments and is continuously expending its information hub at www.eltis.org .
