    SUITS is a European Project aimed at fostering capabilities of cities in implementing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) measures. A survey was implemented at the beginning of the project to characterise nine cities within the consortium through three main activities: an expert assessment based on a set of quantitative indicators related to the actual offer of transport, a self-assessment on the level of actions of the city stakeholders regarding different aspects linked to SUMPSs implementation and an assessment of the areas on which most support is needed. The first two assessments pointed to the same bipartition of the cities in two sets which can be labelled as “leader” and “follower”, on the basis of the relative performances in the different ambits. Both leader and follower cities show needs in areas such as non-motorised transport, intermodality or electric mobility, whereas the most urgent needs when considering policy priorities are related to non-motorised and public transport, urban logistics, mobility management and electric mobility.
