Abstract

Transport planners and authorities across Europe use several different methodologies and tools to evaluate mobility investments or measures. The existing approaches, whilst clear in their objectives, demonstrate a wide variation in procedures, coverage of transport modes, comprehensiveness, ease-of-use and flexibility. This paper discusses the development of a new evaluation framework for urban mobility projects. The framework allows policy makers and transport planners to execute an impact assessment in a comprehensive, user-friendly and flexible way. The developed framework consist of three evaluation strands: the assessment of sustainability by a multi-criteria analysis (MCA), the assessment of stakeholder preferences (MAMCA) and the assessment of policy success by target monitoring. Besides these evaluation tools, the framework also consists of a criteria and indicator framework. These are all used within the three evaluation tools to assess the impact.
