Project Details


The currently discussed draft of a revised TEN-T regulation stipulates that so-called city nodes of the TEN-T network should have developed a SUMP (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan) by the end of 2025. The German Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV) is therefore interested in an inventory of the current situation in German cities regarding the availability and quality of integrated mobility plans. This project will generate this information.

Project goal

The project, commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs, carries out a survey and analysis of the mobility plans in German municipalities according to the requirements of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). The first step is to define assessment criteria for a SUMP; these are primarily based on the "Annex V" of the draft TEN-T Regulation, but also on other pioneering documents on the subject of SUMPs (in particular the SUMP Guidelines, etc.).
Through the analysis of databases and a complementary short survey, the inventory of sustainable mobility plans is collected. The study focuses on the cities of the TEN-T nodes (urban nodes) in Germany and all other cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants. The collected plans will then be analysed and evaluated with regard to the SUMP criteria. In a further work package, the plans that do not (yet) fulfil the SUMP criteria will be analysed; special attention will be paid in this step to whether or how such plans can be supplemented, extended or reworked in order to achieve the missing SUMP qualities.

Role of Rupprecht Consult

Rupprecht Consult is the overall project coordinator and leads WP1 (development of criteria) and WP3 (analysis of "upgradeability").
