The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) of Mitrovica South aims to improve the city connectivity by making the urban mobility system more sustainable. A sustainable urban mobility system is one that satisfies the current mobility needs of the people, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Such a system is well-integrated and provides higher transport accessibility, efficiency and quality for all. It is also more reliable, safer, more affordable and less polluting.
Therefore, main objectives of this SUMP include improvement of the quality of life, social equity, transport accessibility, intermodal integration, economic viability, urban attractiveness, sustainability and environmental quality in Mitrovica South by ensuring that all people, businesses and other affected parties are involved and benefit from this process. As a sustainable urban mobility system is not particularly based on an administrative area but on a “functioning area based on travel-to-work patterns”, this SUMP addresses the mobility systems in Mitrovica South based on which findings will attempt to provide long-term and sustainable solutions.
