Purpose: The world experience of successful city management confirms the need to use effective approaches to build a system of urban planning. SUM planning requires addressing complex issues of improving urban infrastructure. Usually, solving such issues requires the creation of complex plans, the implementation of which requires the use of complex control tools. The purpose of this study was to specify and clarify key aspects of the process of planning sustainable urban mobility, as well as to identify priorities in urban planning to prevent certain inconveniences and errors in the implementation of the plan (SUMP). Design/Methodology/Approach: The following research methods were used in the work, analysis of documents from various open sources using the method of deduction, empirical method – obtaining data for research by conducting a survey, statistical analysis. Findings: The paper emphasized that planning should be based on economic efficiency and economic growth of cities on the way to improving the urban environment. The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans must be based on the key interests of all stakeholders (people, market, environment, society). A simple, clear system of indicators should be used for control, which will not complicate the implementation of the control process and will not lead to excessive costs. Not all cities can prioritize environmental issues. Giving priority to electric transport may be relevant only in those cities and countries where favorable economic, technical and organizational conditions already exist. Originality/value: This study contributes to a better understanding of the problem of creating Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. The recommendations contained in this article should be useful for public entities dealing with urban mobility, as well as for experts and specialists in the field of urban planning. They will allow them to properly identify the needs of the analyzed city, as well as to correctly select the key SUMP implementation and control measures.
