Sustainable urban mobility indicators are a useful tool for cities and urban areas to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their mobility system and to focus on areas for improvement. As cities and urban areas continue to develop Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) and work towards EU policy goals, it is important for this progress to be documented to ensure that such achievements become visible.

The European Commission has developed a comprehensive set of practical and reliable indicators that support cities to perform a standardised evaluation of their mobility system and to measure improvements that result from new mobility practices or policies.

Indicator number 3: “Air pollutant emissions” is directly relevant to the MODALES project. However, these are more complex than just distance driven and vehicle type, but also include behavioural aspects of driving and maintenance that are being addressed by MODALES.
