Project Description

Park4SUMP

Parking management should be an important part of sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) but unfortunately, it is one of its most underdeveloped segments. Most EU member states lack national level policy and guidance on parking. PARK4SUMP aims to change this, because good parking management has proved to be of the utmost importance. Park4SUMP will work on traffic and travel avoidance; it will support less car-dependent lifestyles and put into practise innovations in planning and location policy. It will also optimise the use of existing infrastructure. Furthermore, the modal shift towards more efficient modes like walking, cycling and public transport will be encouraged. There are convincing arguments in favour of incorporating parking management: its costs are low, it pays for itself, it can be profitable, it is easy to implement and modify and it can be done in incremental steps.

*This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 769072.
