In October 2022, the consortium of MiB (Mobility Institute Berlin), OE (Orange Edge), and Mobycon began work on the development of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) for the city of Cologne. The plan will follow all EU guidelines for the project. The consortium will develop the content of the SUMP within the first phase of the process, within which the vision, goals, targets, indicators, and strategy will be delivered in 2024.
The SUMP will be co-created with a second consortium who will oversee the process and communication, as well as the city administration, and other stakeholders. The SUMP will be informed by previous analysis that conducted by Mobycon in 2021 of the relevant political decisions, concepts, data, and the current situation in Cologne regarding walking, cycling, and car traffic. Special attention was paid to the challenge of integrating all infrastructure in the networks for the different modes in Cologne.
