Measuring urban mobility performance
To develop a picture of mobility across the globe, we went beyond what transportation looks like today to explore what mobility could be in a truly smart, liveable, economically vibrant city. Three key themes emerged from this research:
- Performance and resilience. Urban mobility should be efficient. It’s a given that the trains should literally run on time. But cities that scored highest in this category also minimize congestion and travel times, maintain roads and other infrastructure, and offer multiple, integrated modes of transportation.
- Vision and leadership. Urban mobility requires innovation, coordination among stakeholders, and direction. Creating a high-performing, resilient, and inclusive mobility system is unlikely to happen by accident. This second theme analyzes how deliberate and forward-thinking a city’s leaders are regarding its future mobility needs.
- Service and inclusion. Urban mobility should be accessible to all residents. Exemplary cities in this category offer widespread coverage and modest wait times for public transit, affordable options, and user-friendly ways to access a variety of transportation modes.
With these three themes as our lodestar, we dug into the component pieces of each.
