What is the size of New York City’s bus fleet? How many shared mobility vehicles can you find in Moscow? And what was the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the level of public transport use in Paris?
UITP is proud to announce it has joined forces with Moscow Transport to launch CityTransitData: a new online platform providing data on sustainable mobility from cities across the world.
Discover all the data now:
The website follows the announcement from earlier this year highlighting a new partnership between UITP and Moscow Transport to advance sustainable mobility worldwide through the collection and sharing of data on public transport. A launch event was held in March, gathering speakers from Transport for London, Metro de Madrid, and Moscow Transport.
CityTransitData gathers data on topics such as public transport ridership, services provided, the impact of COVID-19 on the sector, among many others. The website is developed around various indicators, to help quantify and qualify the sustainability of transport and mobility in urban areas worldwide. Data is collected in close collaboration with the participating cities and their operators and authorities.
We have been cooperating with our foreign colleagues for a long time to share the best solutions with each other. During the coronavirus pandemic, the exchange of experience helped Moscow and other cities to take effective measures against the infection. It is a great honor for us to develop CityTransitData together with UITP. The project allows us to exchange data, view and analyze the best solutions – we do all this for our passengers.
Alongside data, the website also features a news section, highlighting updates on public transport and mobility from the participating cities.
With CityTransitData, UITP and Moscow Transport want to create a platform serving as a central point of information and insight into sustainable mobility around the globe. This data will enable and encourage the exchange of good practices, helping to shape a more sustainable mobility system, also in the wake of the COVID-19 disruption.
As a sector, our common goal is to realise more livable and healthier cities by advancing sustainable urban mobility. This is something we can only achieve by learning from one another and exchanging with each other – this is what CityTransitData is all about. Drawing on UITP’s years’ long experience in data collection, we know how the gathering and sharing of data is essential to provide insights into best practices on public transport. We are very proud and thank Moscow Transport for the trust given to UITP in leading this important project.
