SUMP in Gdańsk – Parking Policy
Under the CityMobilNet project Gdańsk has started its work on the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). The main idea is to provide equal access for all to all city areas - irrespective of a place of residence, physical fitness or age. The aim is also to provide the city with a high quality sustainable urban transport system.
Transport policy should be geared towards supporting the interest of sustainable transport development. In principle, it is guided by minimizing the amount of individual transport travels and also by promoting and supporting the development of public transport in terms of the local and regional level. Parking policy should be an integral part of transport policy. Continuous traffic increase intensifies problems with parking space, not only in the city center but also in the zone between the central and suburban part of it.
