Integration into SUMP
In many cities there is an obvious tendency to deal with parking problems in a reactive manner, responding to when a specific problem appears in a certain location. Integration into sustainable urban mobility planning means to lift parking management to another level – from a pure operational level (dealing with supply and demand) to a more strategic level, including influencing travel behaviour.
Clever parking management is a fantastic opportunity to steer the mobility of a whole city. Courageous steps of integrated planning to introduce a smart mix of parking management measures , even on a very small scale, quickly lead to success and ultimately have the potential to transform a city.
