The tool can be set up to represent your city within minutes. Policies can then be added equally quickly. It is designed to be easy and quick to use. More advanced settings are available and will lead to more robust results; this typically takes 1-2 hours
Initial use of the tool requires no training. However, training is advised to understand all the potential settings. Training webinars, a detailed user guide and additional support are available on the website.
The tool is populated from drop down menus so minimal input data is required. More advanced users can input specific data on aspects such as initial mode split.

The urban transport roadmaps tool is a web-based system to help city authorities develop urban transport roadmaps that address the most pressing environmental, social and economic issues faced by their transportation systems between now and 2030.
The tool provides cities with the ability to identify, develop, screen and assess different transport policies and measures. In particular, it helps cities to quickly and easily assess the likely costs and impacts of measures that could help them improve the sustainability of their transport systems. Cities can explore combinations of different policy scenarios and assess the impacts of these scenarios on the environment, safety, mobility, the economy and the city’s transport system.
This type of scenario analysis helps cities to rapidly identify which policy measures are likely to be useful in supporting their own urban transport sustainability goals. A key benefit of the tool is that users do not need any prior experience in transport modelling. The tool is user-friendly, and has a simple and intuitive graphical user interface.
