Urban access frameworkAbstract

The Urban Access Framework is comprised of a set of indicators for urban areas. These indicators measure how many destinations you can reach (absolute accessibility), how many destinations are nearby (proximity) and what is the impact of the transport system in reaching these destinations (transport performance). The indicators are computed for many different destinations, for four transport modes (car, public transport, walking and cycling), for different geographical levels and for different thresholds. This dataset contains indicators for 121 European cities and is an outcome of the "Access and safety in European cities" project, which was done in collaboration with OECD's Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities (CFE) and funded by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy.
