Project goal

The project aimed at improving the local capacities for integrated mobility planning and implementation. An integrated and participative mobility planning process was conducted in Poltawa and Schytomyr that results in SUMPs in both cities. The planning processes helped advancing public transport, walking and cycling as well as mobility management and now serve as model processes applicable to other Ukrainian cities.
