The UMii report reflects on innovation with 38 cities

The Urban Mobility Innovation Index (UMii) was launched in 2016 by UITP and the Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai (RTA) to share knowledge and gather insights into cities’ ways of fostering innovation to address urban transport challenges. It is an indicator framework that assesses the maturity of a city’s innovation ecosystem in urban mobility, using a collection of indicators.

The new UMii 2021 report highlights lessons from 38 innovative cities worldwide, aiming to inspire other city administrations to learn, experiment, and lead mobility innovations that contribute to a transformation towards safer, healthier, quieter, cleaner, and happier cities for all.

The report captures recent changes and translates best practices into practical and actionable recommendations for cities to strategically integrate innovation as part of urban transport planning. One main take-away is that cities are proactively engaging with innovation more than ever, and they are also experimenting with a wider range of innovations – underpinning these innovations are a wider set of goals which cities aim to achieve.
