Securing a long-term reduction in urban road congestion is a major challenge for modern cities. The key driver and change agent for sustainable development in transport is the city with its local authorities, stakeholder organisations and citizens.
Almost half (44%) of all EU urban citizens live in ‘medium-sized’ city regions of less than 500,000. There is still a need to take into account the requirements of the authorities of small and medium sized cities and to address existing capacity shortfalls in order to maintain and normalise sustainable mobility in policy making and transport planning and to improve the quality of urban life.
The SUITS project shares best practice and develops a range of materials to enable, in particular, small and medium-sized cities to increase capacity to finance and implement sustainable transport measures or Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) that support mobility transformation.
