The Planner’s Guide to Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning

Citizen feedback on cycling infrastructure in Karlskrona, Mobility Points in Rostock, Vilnius, Kalmar, Aarhus and Guldborgsund, Living Streets campaigns in Tartu, Gdansk and Aarhus; this and much more can be found in cities.multimodal’s newly finished final publication.

We are happy to announce that one of cities.multimodal’s final publications The Planner’s Guide to Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning is now available on the project website. The purpose of the Planner’s Guide is to inspire mobility and transport planners wanting to take their city’s multimodality to the next level. The Planner’s Guide contains practical examples and descriptions of methods facilitating replication of the measures in other European cities.

The Planner’s Guide is divided into seven thematic chapters covering the results of several project activities. It starts with an introduction of cities.multimodal, multimodal city quarters and what to consider when planning for sustainable urban mobility. Next follows an overview of cities.multimodal partner cities and their standing on sustainable urban mobility planning. Also, the partner city pilot areas are presented along with an evaluation of their multimodality ranking amongst the partner cities.

All project partner cities tested different ways to involve citizens in mobility planning processes. In the Planner’s Guide you find examples of how Karlskrona, Riga and Aarhus chose to engage their citizens along with their recommendations for successful citizen involvement. Another important corner stone of the cities.multimodal project are the mobility points which are located in the partner city pilot areas. The guide includes the jointly developed mobility point concept and practical examples, acquired during the project lifetime.

The Planner’s Guide continues with a chapter on Living Streets, a public campaign that has been implemented in many of the partner cities. The cities.multimodal adapted Living Streets concept is explained and examples from Aarhus, Tartu and Gdansk Living Streets are presented. The Planner’s Guide is concluded with a chapter on ICT solutions and how they can support multimodality and a chapter on peer reviews as a method for capacity building among partners.
