Assessing SDG indicator 11.2.1 in European cities. Providing adequate access to urban public transport is one of the targets within the urban sustainable development goal. UN-Habitat has developed a methodology for the production of a core indicator measuring the state of play and progress towards that target. DG REGIO contributes to the effort of indicator production for European cities and provides additional indicators providing more insight in the characteristics of urban public transport systems and their performance in providing accessibility services to the cities’ population. These efforts are in line with the development of a joint EC OECD ITF framework of urban mobility indicators. The presentation will report on the progress made towards the framework’s indicator production and will highlight various opportunities for the further development of harmonised and comparable metrics.
