Mobility alert for urban zones - Urban Mobility Plan Awards

The European Commission has launched the 5th edition of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMPs) Awards. Each year, the award highlights a different aspect of mobility planning. The 2013 award recognised successful territorial and policy integration, while the 2014 edition looked at monitoring implementation with an eye to making improvements. The 2015 edition focused on providing for multimodality and intermodality in sustainable urban mobility planning. Last year, the Swedish Covenant signatory city Malmö won the SUMPs award for its innovative multimodal transport network, which makes it easier to complete journeys sustainably.

This year, the SUMP award will take freight in sustainable urban mobility planning as its theme.
