The Economic Benefits of Sustainable Urban Mobility Measures

By Christof Marx / Updated: 11 Oct 2017
Report on the economic benefits of sustainable urban mobility measures

These reports demonstrate the economic value of sustainable urban mobility interventions. Based on the review of a large body of evidence comprising 351 source documents, they present and summarise the available evidence for 22 types of mobility measures.

These evidence reviews assist practitioners in selecting and prioritising measures by: 

  • Indicating the net beneficial economic returns that are likely to be experienced from the range of interventions commonly found in a SUMP, including the range and scale of benefits.
  • Providing information as to which interventions are most likely to work well together in respect of producing more sustainable mobility and providing economic benefits.
  • Offering examples of effectively evaluated existing interventions through the EVIDENCE database and the Measure Reviews.
 
Demonstrating economic benefits from sustainable mobility choices – the EVIDENCE project: This report introduces and summarises the issues explored while reviewing the economic benefits of mobility measures, including barriers identified, lessons learnt, as well as recommendations for stakeholders at all levels in the process of selecting and implementing sustainable urban mobility interventions.
 
Independent Review of Evidence - Main Report: This report summarises the findings of the review of evidence on the economic benefits of sustainable mobility measures. 
 
Independent Review of Evidence - Reviews: This report contains detailed evidence for the twenty-two different categories of sustainable mobility interventions, highlighting the information about economic impacts found. The twenty-two review can also be downloaded individually here.
 
Independent Review of Evidence - Summaries: For those looking for a quick overview, this report provides two page summaries for each of the 22 sustainable urban mobility interventions reviewed by the project. The twenty-two summaries can also be downloaded individually here
 
Evidence database: Provides access to the 351 documents that were used in the in-depth analysis of evidence linked to one or several of the 22 sustainable mobility measures. 
 
Independent Review of Evidence - Method: This report details the process followed in undertaking the literature search and review analysis, while also reflecting on the quality and availability of the material that has been reviewed. 
 
How Urban Transport Projects are Appraised - Current Practice in the EU: These discussion documents from November 2014 convey to the reader:
  • The challenge of determining a project’s viability.
  • The role of project appraisal (most commonly CBAs) in decision‐making at urban level.
  • The role SUMPs play in project prioritisation.
 
The Next Generation Report - An outline of academic education on sustainable transportation in Europe: This report describes the characteristics and motivations of organisations currently involved in transport training in all EU countries. Based on 50 interviews in 26 EU countries, this report identifies key avenues for creating a future generation of transport professionals with a better understanding of sustainable mobility.
