Safe roads

Score based on the number of pedestrian and cyclist fatalities over three years compared to the population of the city

Access to climate-friendly mobility

Score based on the affordability and accessibility of public transport, and access to public and semi-public electric vehicle charging stations

Policies

Score based on whether zero/low emission zones are in place or planned, whether phasing out the sales of polluting cars is planned, and whether bike/car sharing and integrated public transport tickets/apps exist
