Monitoring and evaluation

Subscribe to RSS - Monitoring and evaluation

Urban mobility measures should be monitored and evaluated to understand how they work and perform. This helps cities identify problems and areas for improvement, and record elements that have been a success.

A good monitoring and evaluation system will inform project reports and provide useful data to stakeholders on the urban mobility situation in their city.

Implementing Low Emission Zones

Low Emission Zones (LEZs) have clear benefits in reducing air pollution in urban areas, and are being successfully implemented in cities across Europe. However, the practicalities of implementing a LEZ involve more than simply putting up signs.

Good communication and enforcement of the rules is key to success. Therefore, the Clean Air Europe project has summarised the outcomes of a project meeting in Berlin, giving local authorities some brief pointers to improve and monitor their LEZs.

ITF online transport tool

The online tool, launched by the ITF and OECD in 2017, allows users to freely select between 19 transport-related indicators for more than 50 countries to create their own transport data. This allows users to:

  • Compare trends for up to four countries simultaneously.
  • Create country rankings.
  • Show country information on a world map

The topics cover CO2 emissions, road safety, infrastructure investment, modal shares and the transport network.

CIVITAS guide for evaluating urban mobility measures

The ongoing evaluation of urban mobility measures during their implementation can help to improve them. It can also ensure that the results of the measure are as intended and reduce the likelihood of repeating past mistakes. Evaluation Matters, a publication from the CIVITAS Initiative, guides users through all the steps in the evaluation process to draw meaningful conclusions from their findings.

See below to download the document.

MaxEva - evaluating mobility management

Calculating the environmental impact and emissions reduction achieved by mobility management projects can be difficult in comparison to other types of measures. The MaxEva tool guides users in evaluating and collecting monitoring data of mobility management projects.

MaxEva automatically calculates the effects in terms of reduced mileage and reduced carbon dioxide. Users can also benchmark their results against those of other projects implemented elsewhere in Europe that have used the same evaluation method. Currently over 180 projects are included in the database.

Low-carbon indicators

The Regions for Sustainable Change project has developed a comprehensive toolkit of low-carbon indicators for use by European regions in policy-making. The toolkit is designed to provide assistance in identifying, measuring and reporting on indicators.

MaxSumo - planning and evaluating mobility management

Mobility management is a concept to promote sustainable transport and manage the demand for car use by changing travellers' attitudes and behaviour. At the core of mobility management are 'soft' measures such as information and communication, organising services and co-ordinating activities. Soft measures complement 'hard' measures such as new infrastructure or additional public transport vehicles.

Addressing challenges in sustainable urban mobility planning

Although the concept of sustainable urban mobility planning is now mainstream in European cities, a number of common challenges remain. An awareness of these challenges is required so that they can be adequately planned for using Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). Innovative and transferable solutions for these challenges are also being sought at present.
