Evaluation of Transport Performance Measures for Cities

Managers of transport organizations need to make decisions that contribute to city objectives that are broader than just transportation efficiency. There is an increasing awareness that there are linkages between transport and other public policy domains: safety, the environment, the economy, social equity and mobility. Ideally, transport objectives reflect those linkages; are measurable so that transport performance can be evaluated; and assist in achieving city, regional and national policy goals. Transport performance is assessed in numerous world cities, but there is no coherent body of knowledge about how transport contributes to broader city goals. The report presents the results of a survey on the alignment between these goals, and conclusions and recommendations.
