Sustainable Urban Integrated Transport Systems: Transferable tools for Small-Medium local authorities  

The SUITS project’s aim is to substantially increase the capacity of Small-Medium local authorities to develop and implement sustainable, inclusive, integrated and accessible transport strategies, policies, technologies, practices, procedures, tools, measures and intelligent transport systems that recognize the end-to-end travel experiences of all users and freight.

The project outputs will provide valuable tools for local authorities and policy makers in making the case for socially and economically sustainable investments in transport. SUITS targets four key areas:

  • Capacity gaps in small-medium local authorities’ knowledge and work practices.
  • The need for integrated urban mobility planning of both freight and passengers based on the capture and use of information relating to the diversity of active, private, public, shared and multimodal forms of transport, journey types and travellers/freight.
  • The need to exploit future transport technologies to improve transport efficiency and enhance quality of life.
  • The need to maximise the effectiveness and sustainability of transport measures through transferable best practice, new funding models and creation of sustainable opportunities for new business entries.
