How prepared are cities to clean up transport?


We scored cities across the following five categories:

Space for people

Score based on the lengths of separated pedestrian footways and all cycling paths compared to the total length of the city road network, as well as the average of TomTom traffic congestion index over 3 years

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


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

Clean air

Score based on 3-year annual mean concentrations and the trends of NO2, PM10 and PM2.5 over 5 years, with a stronger focus on traffic stations
