Sustainability assessment of urban transport system in Greater Jakarta

UNESCAP has developed The Sustainable Urban Transport Index (SUTI) to help summarize, track and compare the performance of Asian cities in regards to sustainable urban transport and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), more specifically target 11.2. The objective of SUTI is to evaluate the status of the urban transportation system in cities. SUTI is a quantitative tool for member states and cities to compare their performance on sustainable urban transport systems and policies with peers. It can help to identify additional policies and strategies required to improve the urban transportation systems and services. It includes ten indicators for the System, Economic, Environmental, and Social domains. SUTI also assesses the progress of transport contribution towards the achievement of SDGs. Jakarta, especially Jabodetabek (Greater Jakarta), is an urban agglomeration area in Indonesia which is growing rapidly and has many problems in the transportation sector. Sustainable transportation is part of the government's program to ensure the smooth running of urban transportation. For this reason, it is necessary to measure the sustainability of transportation in Greater Jakarta through SUTI. Data collection to develop SUTI in Greater Jakarta includes field data collection, data collection from the appropriate authority, and reviewing various relevant sources. Due to the Covid-19 situation, all data collection was from secondary data based on relevant parties in Indonesia.
