City Level Sustainable Mobility Indicator Descriptions
Free of charge
Guidance document / Manual Indicator set
- Data gathering
- Metropolitan regions
This document provides a simple and easy to use set of indicators that cities can use to measure how well their transport and mobility system is performing. Data gathered regularly can show to what degree certain goals are achieved, how certain mobility functions perform and how the city is improving (which is crucial evidence in communication with politicians and citizens).
The document presents a list of indicators and prioritises 9 of them. The full list of indicators is divided into four main categories:
- Output indicators – what the city has actually delivered or implemented.
- Intermediate outcomes, such as travel patterns.
- Final outcomes, such as public transport speed and reliability.
- Final impacts on policy objectives such as levels of air pollution, public health and safety.
Some of these categories are further subdivided by mode of transport.
For each indicator, a definition is provided along with a summary of the urban mobility objectives that it is related to. Then some information is provided on how and how often to gather the necessary data and the costs of so doing. Finally, examples are given of cities that have gathered such data already and how they have used it.
