EcoMobility and EcoLogistics are ICLEI initiatives aimed at creating people-friendly, climate-neutral, and socially inclusive mobility options.
ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability is a global network of more than 1,750 local and regional governments committed to sustainable urban development. Active in 100+ countries, we influence sustainability policy and drive local action for low emission, nature-based, equitable, resilient, and circular development. Our Members and team of experts work together through peer exchange, partnerships, and capacity building to create systemic change for urban sustainability.
Through the EcoMobility initiative, ICLEI supports its Members in prioritizing walking, cycling, public transport, and shared light electric vehicles. It promotes travel through integrated, socially inclusive, and environmentally-friendly options without depending on privately-owned vehicles.
Through the EcoLogistics initiative, ICLEI promotes the transportation of goods by giving priority to health, safety, low-emission, and people-centered urban development. It encourages circular and regional economies while limiting the impact of freight transport.
Our impact in numbers
Over 34 cities and regions representing more than 45 million people have committed to sustainable mobility initiatives.
About the modal split
Modal split is a key indicator that reflects the impact of the city’s mobility policies. It is essential to monitor how the modal split develops during awareness campaigns, improvements of public transport, improvements of bike paths and other transport services.
However data quality might be compromised due to various definitions and collection methods in each city. Actuals, or estimates based on a different methodology, may be available. For example, mobility surveys can be based on historical travel surveys extrapolated to the population or a few road sensors.
As such, we aim to provide comparable modal split data of cities while continuing to improve the quality of data and acquire more accurate figures. You can compare city data by region or country by clicking the filter menu on the right. For data resources and notes, please refer to the second page.
Please let us know how you are using the tool and data via email email@example.com. We would love to know what is useful or needed for mobility practitioners. Do you have a good sustainable mobility story in your city? We may be able to feature your city in a case study, so please get in touch.
