The guidelines are intended for local authorities, urban transport and mobility practitioners, as well as other stakeholders involved in the preparation of a SUMP. Each step of the plan development process is illustrated with good practice examples, tools and references to further information.
They are available for download in the following languages:
EN (link is external); BG (link is external); ES (link is external); GR (link is external); HU (link is external); IT (link is external); PL (link is external); RO (link is external); UA (link is external)
An online version of the guidelines has also been made available (in English) to provide a convenient and interactive source of information for mobility practitioners.
The guidelines stem from a review of existing documents and a thorough consultation process of experts across Europe organised between 2010 and 2013 as part of a service contract for the European Commission.

Since the first edition of the SUMP Guidelines was published in late 2013, it has acted as the main European reference document for urban transport and mobility practitioners involved in the development and implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).
Whilst the Guidelines continue to be used extensively, major new trends in many areas of urban mobility have emerged and a wealth of practical SUMP experience has been acquired over the last few years. This meant it was time to rethink and update the original Guidelines. A comprehensive update process of European SUMP guidance was started in 2018, including a revision of the Guidelines itself, as well as the development of a range of complementary guides on specific aspects of SUMP.
