Call for feedback on the SUMP Topic Guide on the safe use of micromobility devices in urban areas

In a fast-evolving urban transport environment, micromobility is changing how people move around the city. It brings along new and urgent challenges for urban planners, local authorities, and national decision-makers.

For this reason, the first Policy Support Group of the CIVITAS ELEVATE Coordination and Support Action, with the involvement of 5 experts from selected organisations (TRL, ETSC, POLIS, the City of Paris and the City of Helsinki), the chair of the CIVITAS Policy Advisory Committee (City of Antwerp), TRT and BUAS (Breda University of Applied Sciences), has prepared a SUMP Topic Guide focusing on micromobility in the SUMP planning and implementation process.

The Topic Guide proposes best practice and key recommendations on the integration of micromobility in urban mobility planning, with the goal to support cities in achieving a safer use of micromobility devices in urban areas. It should also support the European Commission in delivering Action 22 of the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.

This consultation process should allow stakeholders to feedback on the draft Topic Guide and to contribute to its development, ensuring that the document is relevant for all key urban mobility actors. 

The draft document is available for download: civitas_elevate_psg1_draft_topic_guide_210924.docx

Feedback on the document is invited until Friday 29 October 2021 (extended deadline!). Readers can add comments directly to the document and should then be sent to holveattrt [dot] it (Vanessa Holve).
