Better information leads to better city policy. Unfortunately, many of the world’s cities still lack basic information on their own transport systems, leading to decisions measured against anecdotes rather than data. 

ITDP presents the all-new Atlas of Sustainable City Transport, a global data dashboard measuring indicators of all modes of sustainable transport in 1,000 urban areas and tens of thousands of jurisdictions worldwide. The Atlas is a powerful tool for planners and officials to develop meaningful goals for sustainable transport while measuring their own progress and that of peers.

This webinar will focus on how the Atlas can be used for decision- and policy and will highlight the Atlas’ key indicators, especially People Near Bikeways and  People Near Transport, and their relevance to mobility planning. This debut webinar will be the first in a series of content from ITDP that will feature the Atlas’ dynamic capabilities and insights.
