Development of a Tool to Assess Urban Transport Sustainability – The Case of Swedish Cities

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

This paper presents a framework and a tool to assess transport sustainability in Swedish cities that was developed for and together with some cities in Sweden in strong cooperation with the researchers. The tool, called the Transport Sustainability Barometer (TSB), includes a set of hierarchical indicators to measure sustainability in respect to Efficiency, Accessibility, Safety, Liveability, Emissions, and Resource use. The novelty of the TSB is that it proposes the use of both objectively and subjectively measurable indicators, i.e., how the population perceives sustainability of transport, their satisfaction with the transport system, and its effects on the economy, the environment, and social issues. This paper also presents the application of the tool in a city in Sweden.
