How many people can you reach by public transport, bicycle or on foot in European cities?
A new DG REGIO working paper has just been published: https://ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/en/information/maps/low-carbon-urban-accessibility
It measures access to public transport for many European cities using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal indicator. It also measures access to high-frequency departures and compares the population accessible by public transport with the nearby population in 42 cities. For those cities walking and cycling accessibility is also assessed. Finally, the paper provides a set of context indicators to help to interpret the results, including the speed of public transport, vehicle kilometres travelled, building block size and density. To provide easy access to all this information, the working paper is accompanied by an interactive map and by city fact sheets.
