With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611

A world ranking that analyzed urban transport patterns of 100 cities around the world and indicated the state of implementation of sustainable urban mobility systems. This is the study "Sustainable Cities Mobility Index 2017", prepared by the Center for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) for Arcadis (a global design, engineering and management consulting company based in Amsterdam).

Essentially, the evaluation of the urban public transports and of the management of mobility systems has been conducted through three main factors:

  • the social factor (e.g. access to services, passenger intermodal transport);

  • the environmental factor (e.g. atmospheric pollution, cycle paths);

  • the economic factor (e.g. public finance, road network efficiency).

Cities at the top of the rankings are able to find an almost perfect balance between the three main factors mentioned above.

In this framework, it is important to recall that the good practices identified by REGIOMOB provide practical examples for the sustainable mobility of cities that want to adopt them.
