MOVING TOGETHER FOR A BETTER MOBILITY: 2MOVE2 will further advance the knowledge of innovative, integrated urban transport systems, provide networking for cities to assimilate best practice, evaluate impacts and disseminate results. The official title 'New forms of sustainable urban transport and mobility' was abbreviated by 2MOVE2 in order to highlight the strong cooperation between leading and learning cities that will share and increase their knowledge and capacities in innovative urban transport systems. Strong focus will be laid on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. All city partners, which are Brno in the Czech Republic, Málaga in Spain, Stuttgart in Germany and Tel Aviv-Yafo in Israel, will benefit from the exchange of knowhow and the implementation of forward-looking transport measures.



2MOVE2’s main objective is to improve urban mobility by advancing or creating sustainable, energy-efficient urban transport systems in the participating European cities for the benefit of all citizens, society and climate policy, respecting environment and natural resources.

The project consortium consists of eight partners in the four participating cities. The coordinating City of Stuttgart is supported by SSP Consult which handles technical coordination and project evaluation, as well as the University of Stuttgart which coordinates a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) working group and site. Furthermore the City of Brno is supported by its public transport company DPMB, while the City of Tel Aviv-Yafo is supported by the Technion Institute.

Based on the idea to develop and implement similar measures and initiatives in the partner cities the 2MOVE2 partners have defined measure packages in all four cities involving:

  • Innovative, clean, energy efficient vehicles and integrated transport systems for personal, collective and freight applications.
  • Deployment of ICT and ITS for traffic management, vehicle guidance, accident avoidance, passenger information and travel planning, road pricing and smart payment systems.
  • Sustainable urban transport planning that combines land-use with innovative transport systems and 'human' transport modes of cycling and walking.

Implementing sustainable mobility


Following the idea of defining and implementing similar measures and initiatives in the partner cities, 2MOVE2 partners have developed altogether 23 measures. The development and implementation of similar projects and initiatives in the four cities will allow evaluation and comparison of the results and impacts in the different contexts within the leading and learning cities. In addition, the measures have been selected to allow transfer and applicability to other small and medium-sized towns.

Specific emphasis is given in 2MOVE2 to the measures of e-mobility, freight and ITS-based traffic management. Linking the proposed measures with the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans and urban development plans is also being stressed. Other important topics which are addressed in the measures are the promotion of non-motorised mobility and public transport, as well as the enhancement of mobility information services for companies and citizens. The main goal of the participation in 2MOVE2 is to implement new measures which support and enable the establishment of more sustainable transport systems. This requires that the measures demonstrated in the framework of this project are not isolated, but are part of a comprehensive system combining measures in all action fields of CIVITAS.

Therefore, special importance is allocated to the issue of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. All four cities want to implement or advance sustainable urban mobility plans. The 2MOVE2 Working Group on SUMPs will provide strategic and political validation and advice to the project. It will be composed of site managers and local representatives such as politicians or relevant stakeholders. The working group will provide directions to improve the project's effectiveness, quality and compliance with policies, in addition to providing conclusions and recommendations resulting from the project.

The measures will be complemented by major awareness and consensus building efforts among others through training workshops and educational activities.

Project results


Project results will be published according to the process of implementation of the measures.
