Paper Title:
Evaluation of Sustainable Urban Transport in China
  Abstract

Achievement of sustainable urban transport requires a means of determining whether progress is being made towards sustainable urban transport. This paper adopts appraisal indicators to provide such a means of assessing progress. The paper first analyses the rapid urbanization phenomenon in china, points out the necessity of sustainability, and discusses sustainable urban transport definition. Three aspects which are impacted by urban transport development are proposed. Then the framework for the evaluation of sustainable urban transport is formulated, and principles needed to be considered when selecting indictors are described. Based on these, specific indicators for the sustainable urban transport are set out, which correspond to the seven questions of the evaluation framework. The various indicators indicate the desired direction of change, and possible disaggregations. Finally, uncertainty of evaluation criteria is studied.
