SUTRA [ Sustainable Urban TRAnsportation ]

WP 14: Cross-comparison and benchmarking

  • The primary objectives are:
    • The identification, collection, homogenisation of

sustainable urban transport indicators for cities

and/or urban conglomerates across Europe –

in order to describe the scenarios within a larger

group of (current situation) cities;

    • A comparative analysis of the collected sustainable

urban transport in a sort of benchmarking exercise;

    • A first step towards the identification of promising

strategies for sustainable urban transportation;

    • The development and implementation of an

interactive web based benchmarking platform;

1. Primary objectives

WP 14: Cross-comparison and benchmarking

  • An extended urban transport indicator DB:

“WP14 Database” - at the basis of the benchmarking

exercise - obtained by collection and homogenization

of a number of independent studies.

The main data sources were:

      • SUTRA set of indicators;
      • UITP Millennium Cities Database for Sustainable

Transport;

      • Auto Oil II Programme(“Generalized Empirical Approach”);
      • Urban Audit (DG Regional Policy and EUROSTAT);
      • Citizens' Network Benchmarking Initiative (DG Energy

and Transport - DG TREN);

Further data extracted by reports by:

EMTA Barometer Of Public Transport In The European Metropolitan Areas,

Ecosistema Urbano 2003 di LEGAMBIENTE, CITEPA, CERTU,

ECMT European Conference of Ministers of Transport…

  • The SUTRA “WP14 – extended database”

Final “WP14 Database” – contains:

      • 85 sustainable transport related indicators
      • 250 European urban conglomerate

Collected data corresponding to a “sparsely populated”

matrix (rows  indicators; columns  urban conglomerates)

      • 250 European urban conglomerate

Collected data corresponding to a “sparsely populated”

Are the collected data sufficiently homogeneous?

Are the collected data statistically significant?

Is any benchmarking exercise feasible?

WP 14: Cross-comparison and benchmarking

  • Conclusion and Outlook:
    • Benchmarking is only as good as the quality and

availability of the data it is based on;

    • Inconsistencies and poor data quality are a key

impediment to understanding trends in urban travel

patterns and the forces behind the trends.

    • Several factors are no doubt involved, among them:
      • (when collected at all) data collection methods,

measurements and definitions are often inconsistent

within and among cities,

      • in some countries, private public transport operators

are not communicating key data citing privacy rights;

WP 14: Cross-comparison and benchmarking

  • Conclusion and Outlook:
    • The main idea at the basis of the Work Package is the

collection of data available in literature and their

critical merging in a unique database of demographic,

economic, environmental and transport indicators

at urban level. The data collection process was limited

to European data on the scale of urban conglomerate;

    • Having no access to the data collection procedure,

a “post-analysis” of the “robustness” and statistical

significance of the merged data was undertaken

    • The benchmarking exercise shows that certain basic

relationships either exist or do not exist between key

variables (within the accuracy and statistical significance

of the available data, of course);

  • Conclusion and Outlook:

With the outlook and the aim of:

    • potentially increasing the quantity and quality of the

available data by making them available to potential end-user,

in the hope of triggering a positive feed-back,

    • make the collected data available to eventually interested

external users allowing a friendly Internet interface implementing

some basic utilities as ranking and graphical interface,

A web interface to the “SUTRA WP14 database” have been

developed and made available via Internet.

We believe that the presented results could be useful to

potential users interested in benchmarking and ranking

their data with a significant data set specific to European

urban conglomerates.
