The City of Belgrade has announced tendering for the development of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP), with the deadline for the submission of bids set at January 24, 2019.

The Secretariat for Public Transport said in the tendering documentation that the SUMP must transform a traditional, passenger car-oriented transport system into a transport system adapted to sustainable models of traffic – walking, biking, public transport and transport with environmentally friendly vehicles.

The sustainable urban mobility plan is an innovative way of planning a city transport and urban system that satisfies the needs of people in a sustainable manner, the tendering documentation reads.

The objectives of such a transport system are the availability of end-destinations and services, increased traffic safety, reduced greenhouse effect and fossil fuel consumption impact, the attractiveness of city spaces, an improved quality of life, a healthier environment and a reduced harmful influence on people’s health.

According to the documentation, the SUMP provides benefits for the city in raising the quality of life, reducing the negative impact of transport on the environment, improving the transport network, accessibility for a larger number of citizens, easier implementation of environmental protection programs and aligning with the Kyoto protocol guidelines, and EU regional policy, and creating conditions for access to EU funds.

The deadline for the implementation of the contracted service is 12 months from the date of the signing of the contract.

Roadmap to Sustainable Urban Mobility in SEE countries

Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning is the most important topic in the European Commission’s Urban Mobility Package. The commission also made 2018 the year of multimodality.

By 2030, 60% of the world’s population will live in cities. At the moment, over the 50% of the population lives in cities in South-East European countries.

The negative effects of the transportation system in SEE cities are strong and the “greening” of the transportation system is very important, but at the same time a challenging and complex process.

In December 2017, the GIZ Open Regional Fund for South-East Europe – Energy Efficiency (ORF-EE) launched its new regional project Sustainable Urban Mobility in South-East European Countries – SEE Cities Together towards Sustainable and Energy Efficient Transport (SUMSEEC).

In November this year, GIZ ORF-EE published a Roadmap to Sustainable Urban Mobility in SEE countries.
