Abstract: As a consequence of the growing awareness on sustainability in relation to passenger mobility and freight transport, cities encounter the need to monitor and benchmark their performance. An indicatorbased evaluation framework on city level can be employed to evaluate the performance in a simple and unambiguous manner. This paper applies such a framework, based on a wide range of indicators, on a case study. The results of this case study show that the applicability of the framework depends mainly on data quality and data availability, where poor or few data hinders comparability and aggregation. To actually monitor a city’s performance, time series data should be collected and a city classification can be made up for benchmarking purposes. Finally, the case study also sheds light on the quest to collect appropriate data in an inexpensive and regular way.
