With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611
Urban Transport Roadmaps Tool is coming!
On 13 April 2016 the Urban Transport Roadmaps tool will be launched at an event in Bremen (Germany).
The web-based tool, which is supported by the European Commission's DG MOVE, is designed to explore transport scenarios that are practical, feasible and implementable. By using the tool, political and technical decision-makers can find a suitable mix of measures to realise the goals of their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).
Speakers from the European Commission and cities will frame the issue of scenario planning and how the tool can help with this task. There will then be a panel discussion on the importance of exploring different combinations of mobility measures. Finally, participants at the event will be able to try out the tool at a reception immediately afterwards.
Find out more information on the event on Urban Transport Roadmaps website.
What is the Urban Transport Roadmaps tool?
Cities in Europe are vital centres of economic activity, innovation and employment. However, they face increasing challenges to their mobility systems such as congestion, air pollution, ambient noise, CO2 emissions, accidents and urban sprawl. To tackle these problems cities need to develop and implement coherent and challenging Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPS).
The Urban Transport Roadmaps project provides you with an on-line tool to help you develop your SUMP. It will allow you to:
explore and identify appropriate sustainable transport policy measures;
quantify the transport, environmental and economic impacts of these measures;
consider an implementation pathway (roadmap) for the policy scenario.
The LIFE GYM [LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611] project is co-funded by the LIFE programme, the EU financial instrument for the environment.
