Indicators performing and alerting essential trends and correlations between driving forces, transport factors, environmental changes and policy performance are increasingly important for planning and policymaking. Our indicator relationships show: that the growth in transport emissions is inversely proportional to population and income growth, to the service sector share and to the level of education. Thus, urbanisation both in terms of physical, economic and sociocultural factors is essential for more sustainable mobility patterns. A wide scope of knowledge on the driving forces for urban mobility and transport emissions provides a broader picture of development trends and policy options.
