Sustainable urban mobility indicators for Germany

Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI) have been developed at the European level and their applicability has been extensively tested in a project coordinated by Rupprecht Consult. Under the leadership of Rupprecht Consult, these are 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. In this project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV), an exchange and dialog with German cities and municipalities takes place, focusing on the German perspective and the German understanding of sustainability.

Duration 10/2022 - 12/2024

Coordinator Rupprecht Consult

Project goal

The aim of the project is to develop a broad-based indicator system supported by the municipalities and to make it available to the municipalities in a practical handout.
Against this background, a comprehensive overview of the objectives and indicator definitions of strategic transport planning in Germany will be created, the SUMI indicator set will be analyzed, the need for change will be identified, and in this context specific German additional indicators of sustainable mobility will be developed with the involvement of municipalities and other relevant stakeholders.
Based on the European SUMI concept, already existing indicators of sustainable mobility in cities and municipalities will be recorded, further developed and made accessible.



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).
