Pärnu

Detailed description of the Good Practice

As a result of the process, not only the scope and definition of Pärnu SUTP has been set but also a common vision for the whole functional city region has been derived. Making the quality of urban environment and living better is the key for Pärnu in the future.

The SUTP scope and definition are set to the same targets. Therefore, the scope is to diminish the use of cars by developing a fair, accessible and attractive public transport system, by developing concrete bicycle policy for the city and by handling the seasonal transport problems accompanied by tourists.
Pärnu has taken the most important first steps to get started with the development of a sustainable urban transport. It has been possible by agreeing on the SUTP scope and definition in cooperation with the cross-sectoral stakeholders and together with a transnational experience exchange.


Developing a sustainable transport plan to achieve the targets of an improved quality in urban environment.

Transnational cooperation on SUTP development has made the city realize the need for a cross-sectoral approach in transport planning, especially the need to integrate land-use and transport planning.

Participants of the Good Practice

On the local level, a number of specialists and stakeholders from various fields have been involved in the cooperation to make the definition and scope for the Pärnu SUTP.
