This selection of Good Practices offers politicians, officials from local and national governments as well as experts a comprehensive set of reference cases of the succesful implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans in different regions of the world. The selected cases show programmes from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and Pristina, the capital of Kosovo.
The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) of Santo Domingo demonstrates the implementation of an urban mobility project, covering varied issues such as demand management, public policy coherence and especially the linkage of urban policy with transport. The project thus serves as an example on how to spread a broader planning culture for a sustainable and harmonious city.

The current system of transportation in the City of Santo Domingo has been mostly the result of a historically unregulated, uneven, and rapid urbanization. The results are vastly different levels of service, socio-economic activities, and quality of life across the city’s municipalities. To tackle these issues, Santo Domingo chose the most ambitious path amongst the scenarios identified for its urban mobility plan, which is largely dedicated to the development of a high capacity public transport offer.

Following the current evolution of rapid urban growth, the population will reach 5.5 million inhabitants in 2035, and the urban area will reach a radius of 25 km by the end of the century. The increase in the demand for travel, and in the rate of motorisation accompanying the rise in income, may rapidly lead to the saturation of the existing system. Hence, travel times will increase significantly along with the overall cost of travel, due to the consumption of more fuel by private vehicles and taxis. In a context of rapid economic and demographic growth, Yaoundé is tackling the most pressing issues and has adopted a coherent plan to renovate the road network, a prerequisite for the development of public transport and for better use of public space.
