Developing an indicator set

A set of indicators (both qualitative and quantitative) have been defined, through an extensive literature review and workshop, to assess and measure the state of active mobility in European cities. This was used for the interviews which were carried out with practitioners in the 7 case study cities, in the longitudinal survey and in the selection process for the compendium of good practice.

The types of indicators included are modal share of walking and cycling, cycled or walked kilometres per year, current awareness and attitude to active mobility, land use & topography (using quantitative analysis with GIS tools) but also existing transport infrastructure, policies for active mobility and political support etc. 

A one-page factsheet detailing the indicators used is available here.



Anna, from Trivector gives an overview of the purpose of the indicator set and how it fits in to the PASTA project work. All partners were involved in developing this indicator set.


Developing a common understanding of terms

As part of the process of developing an indicator set, a glossary of terms was produced to provide a common understanding of active mobility measures which will be used throughout the PASTA project.
