City of Martina Franca, Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan

    Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) of Martina Franca

    CLIENT: Municipality of Martina Franca
    PERIOD: 2018 – 2019

    The Municipal Administration of Martina Franca, with its 49,000 residents, has shown particular interest to the issue of sustainable mobility and has decided to undertake the process of adopting a SUMP despite the fact that, according the the Italian Ministry of Transport guidelines (Decree 4 August 2017), they are compulsory only for municipalities with a population greater than 100,000 inhabitants.

    Launched in November 2018, the study provided (i) the setting up of data and documents relating to initiatives and going-on projects developed by the Municipality; (ii) the definition of objectives, strategies and targets; (iii) the selection – in agreement with the Municipality – of the measures of the SUMP Proposal together with the identification of the main indicators for evaluation and monitoring; and (iv) the qualitative-quantitative assessment of environmental, social and economic sustainability of the SUMP measures through the application of the strategic model MOMOS (Model for Sustainable MObility) tool developed by TRT.

    With MOMOS, a Policy Scenario has been simulated, against the Reference Scenario. The policy measures implemented are related to network and services offer, as well as management of the transport demand, regulation, and tariff scheme.

    The policy measures are subdivided into short-term (2 years), mid-term (5 years) and long-term (10 years).

    A founding element of the Plan preparation process was the participatory process, which included an online survey aimed at residents and city users (with the dual purpose of characterizing the demand for mobility and knowing the needs and requests of those who moves daily to the city) and participation of TRT staff in Municipal Assemblies and with citizenship.
