Sustainable urban mobility indicators for Germany

In this project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV), a comprehensive set of indicators for measuring sustainable urban mobility will be developed and made available to German cities and towns.Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI) have previously been developed and tested at the European level, led by Rupprecht Consult, and are now being revised as part of the Eltis/ SUMI2 project in order to be subsequently applied by as many cities and municipalities as possible in Europe.

Sustainable urban mobility indicators for Germany

Duration 10/2022 - 12/2024

Coordinator Rupprecht Consult

Project goal

The aim of the project is to develop a broad-based sustainably mobility indicator system and make it available to German municipalities for practical application.Against the background of the European SUMI concept, a comprehensive overview of the objectives and indicator definitions of strategic transport planning in Germany will be completed. This includes analysis of relevant European and German policy, as well as the goals and indicators of German cities and towns. A range of international and German indicator sets, including SUMI, will also be analyzed, and their applicability to the German context assessed. Tailored German indicators of sustainable mobility will then be developed and tested with the involvement of municipalities and other relevant stakeholders. Finally, the indicator system will be made available for broad application in the form of presentations, practical guides and an online portal concept for municipalities, along with stakeholder-specific recommendations.


The research project will create a resilient information system for evidence-based mobility planning. On the basis of uniform data and indicators, the sustainable development of mobility in German cities and municipalities can be described.

Role of Rupprecht Consult

Rupprecht Consult is the overall coordinator of the project and leads the work packages 1 (stocktaking), 4 (development of a target and indicator system) and 7 (recommendations for action).
