Preparing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) is a complex undertaking. Guidelines developed with the Commission's support offer concrete suggestions on how to apply the SUMP concept and prepare an urban mobility strategy that builds on a clear vision for the sustainable development of an urban area. This process of developing and implementing a SUMP can be broken down into 11 main steps:

Step 1: Determine your potential for a successful SUMP

Step 2: Define the development process and scope of the plan

Step 3: Analyse the mobility situation and develop scenarios

Step 4: Develop a common vision

Step 5: Set priorities and measurable targets

Step 6: Develop effective packages of measures

Step 7: Agree on clear responsibilities and allocate budgets

Step 8: Build systems for monitoring and assessment into the plan

Step 9: Adopt the SUMP

Step 10: Ensure proper management and communication (when implementing the plan)

Step 11: Learn the lessons
