The little red dot has emerged top when it comes to urban mobility, found McKinsey’s new report titled Elements of success: Urban transportation systems of 24 global cities.
Assessing 24 cities in terms of their impact on city residents, the report took into account a comprehensive set of indicators that cover all modes of transport (personal, public, shared, bicycling, and walking) before, during, and after a journey. Eighty indicators were used directly, while another 15 were used to calculate and cross-check the results. At the same time, 400 residents of each city were surveyed to get a sense of satisfaction levels with the mobility options available.
Cities were then ranked on the metrics of availability, affordability, efficiency, convenience, and sustainability – and finally on overall quality. To do so, more than 30 transportation experts were asked to weight the list of indicators and corresponding aspects according to importance and impact on quality of life.
