For Europe to reach its policy goals, cities need to track the impact of their policies through monitoring tools and appropriate common indicator sets. Only this will allow policymakers in urban areas and on the national and European levels to track progress and to develop more effective and fact-based interventions. The widespread and long-term use of the WBCSD indicator set will be a significant achievement to which we are committed to contribute through this study.

In order to achieve this, we have:
 (1) provided technical support to 50-55 urban areas to use the WBCSD indicator set
(2) developed a benchmarking add-on to the WBCSD on-line calculator tool,
(3) collected learnings for the improvement of the indicator set that is grounded in cities’ concrete experiences with the existing indicators.

TML took the lead in the methodologies and data management parts and was the Urban Area Coach for Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. TML specialised in the development and practical implementation of mobility indicators. Within this project, the harmonisation of data collection and processing of information into comparable indicators, across a large set of cities, was a key target for which TML was ideally positioned.
The European Commission has released the urban mobility indicators (SUMI) benchmarking tool for cities to monitor and evaluate the implementation of their sustainable urban mobility plans, and assess the performance of their own policies.TML took the lead in the creation of this benchmarking tool.
