Project contents and structure:
Having implemented the integrated transport concept from the mid-nineties as far as possible, the City of Bremen is now concerned with creating a sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMP) for the next 10-15 years. The transport development plan is supposed to define the strategic principles and guidelines of future transport planning in order to develop a holistic mobility strategy spanning all modes of transport.
As a bidder consortium, Planersocietät handles Bremen’s SUMP in cooperation with engineering group IVV GmbH & Co. KG. The Bremen Institute for Transport Ecology (BVÖ) and the Institute of Urban and Transport Planning (ISB) of RWTH Aachen University support the team in the development of specific topics. The ISB especially examines the interdependence of urban planning and transport demands, and the varied needs and motives regarding mobility. The ISB further researches the structural, operational, organizational, administrative, and informational design of transport networks and systems in cities and regions in order to make the development of cities, regions, and transport sustainable. The institute focuses on the scientific supervision of the creation of the SUMP and incorporates new findings regarding electro mobility, the impact of mobility management, strategies in transport management, and cost development and changing values in transport.
