SUMP Topic guide on safe use of micromobility devices in urban areas

micromobility_guide

TRT is happy to announce today’s publication of the new SUMP Topic Guide on the safe use of micromobility devices, for which TRT is the main author.

The SUMP (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans) Topic Guide has been published alongside the new Urban Mobility Framework of the European Commission. It is the key result from the first Policy Support Group (PSG) of the CIVITAS ELEVATE Coordination and Support Action, with TRT as lead and contributions from 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), BUAS (Breda University of Applied Sciences) and three observers from the cycling and e-sooters sectors.

TRT put its extensive experience of the sector into this new Topic Guide and provided new insights into dealing with one of today’s challenging mobility trend. The Topic Guide focuses on micromobility in the SUMP planning and implementation process and is part of a compendium of EU guidance documents, complementing the revised second edition of the SUMP Guidelines.

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 also supports the European Commission in delivering Action 22 of the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy. It focuses on shared electrically powered personal mobility devices such as e-scooters and provides some guidance on how the users of these vehicles interact with the users of bicycles and electric power assisted cycles (EPACs), as well as pedestrians and other road users.

Tableau EIT result

How much will the transition to sustainable urban mobility cost in European cities? Which benefits and changes in mobility will it bring? What will be the most cost-effective policies to accelerate this transition?

These are some of the questions that a new study from TRT Trasporti e Territorio has been replying to.

The study, commissioned by EIT Urban Mobility and released today, produced a quantification of the costs and benefits of the transition to sustainable urban mobility in European cities by 2030 and 2050. The analysis was carried out with the modelling tool MOMOS, which allowed to assess the impacts of different mobility transition scenarios.

Re-Thinking mobility poverty

The recently-terminated HiReach project has just published a book entitled “Re-thinking Mobility Poverty. Understanding User´s Geographies, Backgrounds and Aptitudes”. TRT, the HiReach coordinator, directly contributed of the writing several chapters.

IThe book, which is based on the analytical phase of project, seeks to better conceptualise and define mobility poverty, addressing both its geographies and socio-economic landscapes.

The book is released in hardcopy by the world’s leading academic publisher Routledge, and can be purchased here.
