HUPMOBILE – Holistic urban and peri-urban mobility project aimed to provide a holistic approach to sustainable mobility solutions in cities and their perimeters in Baltic Sea port cities.
HUPMOBILE’s objective is to provide a holistic approach to the planning, implementation, optimisation and management of integrated, sustainable mobility solutions – both in urban areas as well as in their perimeters. Mobility in this context includes both people and goods (i.e. freight, cargo logistics).
Major urban mobility stakeholders such as city authorities, as well as infrastructure providers and transport providers, will be enabled to assess and integrate innovative mobility options into their mobility management plans and policies. These plans and policies will be aimed at supporting the transition from private car-based mobility to more sustainable mobility. HUPMOBILE framework will allow the planning and implementation of well-functioning interfaces and links in urban- and peri-urban transport by taking into account the different transportation flows in the local context.
City authorities, infrastructure operators and transport providers were enabled to assess and integrate innovative mobility options into their mobility management plans and policies, e.g. concerning:
- Sproduction and urban logistics
- The use of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) solutions
- Multimodality in urban transport and travel-to-work
- New operating models for public-private mobility services
- Logistics flows in and around ports
- Co-creation of mobility services and urban planning with resident.

Concrete piloting activities
Through traffic of the Tuomiokirkkosilta in Turku – a study carried out in the city centre to find out the structure of the traffic passing through.
Pre-feasibility study of adaptive traffic lights in city of Tallinn – the possible outcome of adaptive management of traffic corridors was analysed.
Feasibility Study Teufelsbrücker Platz in Hamburg – investigates the mobility and traffic-related conflicts on the plaza.
Feasibility Study - Logistics Hub Altona – explores the possibilities for establishing microhubs in different locations and offers key recommendations.
Vision and recommendations for an optimal governance model for the development of low-emission waterborne transport in the city of Riga.

HUPMOBILE framework contributes to a sustainable change of planning processes concerning urban mobility. It is an online versatile framework that encompasses access to all the other tools produced within the scope of the HUPMOBILE project. The framework is guided by the starting survey that allows the involved stakeholder to interact with the tools.
The framework includes the following tools which might be accessed through respective links:
- Sustainability of the Transport System Self-assessment – reveals the areas of improvement in mobility.
- Transport solutions interactive map – highlights the sustainable mobility solutions researched within the project.
- Best practices for employers to support the use of public transport – interactive map shows new approaches in organizing sustainable work-related travel.
- Impact assessment tool – helps city planners to assess the impact of an implemented sustainable mobility solution together with stakeholders.
- HUPMOBILE Database of successful mobility solutions – aims to spread knowledge about successful implementations of sustainable mobility solutions.
- Participatory Tools – aims to improve and broaden the stakeholder involvement processes, and assist the cities in their work with stakeholders.
- HUPMOBILE Production Logistics Framework – identifies the relevant factors, and possible relationships across the various layers.
- Simulation Models – is a tool for simulating different traffic scenarios.
