The COVID-19 pandemic has left many cities and regions to adapt to new methods of urban mobility systems faster than before. In this unprecedented time, it is important that proper guidance and support is provided to local authorities to adapt to the new conditions and make sure that sustainable mobility is prioritised in the recovery from COVID-19.
In this regard, a new SUMP practitioner briefing on COVID-19 has been prepared to support cities and regions.
“This new SUMP briefing investigates how cities can respond in the coming months to the exit from lockdown whilst prioritising long-term goals and ambitions for sustainable urban mobility.”, POLIS.
The briefing is developed based on available best practices from across Europe during the COVID-19 crisis. It highlights the case studies of cities which have prioritised sustainable and active modes of mobility during recent months to keep themselves moving.
Interested stakeholders were invited to look into the development of the practitioners’ briefing to make sure that this report provides necessary information and advice for local authorities to adapt sustainable urban mobility post-lockdown.
