Collaborative Urban Transport Solution (CUTS) State of the Art report
Report, 2011

Urban transport for people and goods is rapidly becoming one of the major challenges of political leaders at city, regional and even national levels. Decision and planning processes in cities are extremely complex. Technology and means for achieving the sustainability in urban transport are available. However, the problem is identified as lack of collaboration between different stakeholders in urban area as well as collaboration between transport for people and goods. The project “Collaborative Urban Transport Solution” attempts speed up the introduction of “collaborative urban transport solutions” for goods and people, considering urban form and all stakeholders, by defining common criteria and assessment methods as well as coordinating and supporting further deployment of existing demonstrations and pilots in cities. This report is presenting the results of the pre-study of the project and reviews some of the relevant references based on the three main fields: evaluating, impact assessment and transferability of sustainable transport solutions in urban areas. It also provides a guide for the relevant literature and projects which have been organized in the excel sheet.
