About The Atlas of Sustainable City Transport is an online data dashboard that displays indicators of sustainable and inclusive urban passenger transport. The Atlas includes measurements of nine indicators for over 1,000 metropolitan areas, as well as measurements over 40,000 of legal jurisdictions and districts. These indicators do not just measure infrastructure: they measure what…

About As part of ITDP’s global Cycling Cities campaign and with support from the FIA Foundation, this report finds that networks of protected bicycle lanes in middle-income cities reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower transport costs, and prevent premature road fatalities in a highly cost-effective way.  Connected networks of physically-protected bicycle lanes, rather than disconnected, unprotected…

The Transit Oriented Development (TOD) website, developed in collaboration with the Bernard van Leer Foundation, brings together resources for cities to create healthier communities through urban planning. A major focus of the website and the TOD Standard itself is the health and well-being of babies, toddlers, and caregivers who are particularly vulnerable to car exhaust,…

Rapid transit is the backbone of public transportation, especially in large cities, because it allows people to travel quickly between different neighborhoods. It functions best as part of a larger urban mobility system that includes walking and cycling. The Rapid Transit Database (RTDB) is a collection of all rapid transit corridors worldwide that relies on…

Pedestrians First is a set of interactive tools that measure walkability in cities around the world.  Walkability is complex and can be understood in many ways. This online tool features a hierarchy of needs that support walking and a description of the infrastructure, activity, and priority needed for walkability. Although these frameworks can be used independently…

Cycling is a powerful tool to improve transportation, increase access, and enhance the quality of life in cities around the world. People in cities that prioritize cycling see huge benefits, from faster commutes and easy connections to public transit, to improved air quality and health. But for many cities where few trips are currently made…

A tool for cities to effectively develop sustainable transportation policies.  In the United States, transportation accounts for nearly 30 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. As cities attempt to become more sustainable, it is imperative that they curb those emissions. ITDP has defined indicators that are actionable, scalable, and easily understood. There are many existing indicators of…

About Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a critical solution to the unsustainable, car-dependant, and transit-poor urban sprawl that has characterized the growth of cities around the world over the last century. It also contrasts with transit-adjacent development that fails to foster the strong walking and cycling environment needed to complement and actively support the use of…
