The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP), which has been implemented in many cities in Europe since 2013, is a strategic plan prepared to meet the mobility needs of people and commercial organizations in and around cities in order to provide a better quality of life. The main difference from traditional transportation planning is that it focuses on people rather than transportation demand. In addition, it is constantly monitored as a dynamic plan and updated with common sense.
