CITY LAB 4

Co-creating a SUMP for a small island city with seasonal tourism

Location:

Platanias, Greece

Objectives:

Develop context-specific mobility transformation pathways
Forge cross-sectoral links between transport, public services, and commerce
Create new forms of public-private partnerships and business models

Scenario:

Testing a tailored approach developed for smaller urban areas, Platanias is developing a SUMP and supporting implementation pathway for its cross-municipal functional area. This will seek to address mobility challenges specific to touristic island locations, including high seasonal fluctuations in mobility demand and creating links between the hinterland and urban areas.
