Abstract
The HASTA indicator framework, covering the three dimensions of sustainability, i.e. Economic, Environmental and Social, to monitor sustainability of transport in Swedish cities was elaborated.

Under the three sustainability dimensions, there are 6 sustainability aspects (indicator groups), 2-3 per dimension; these are Efficiency, Accessibility (Economic dimension), Accessibility, Safety,

Liveability (Social dimension); Emissions, Resource use (Environmental dimension). The accessibility indicator group is related with both economic and social sustainability. The individual indicators are structured in three levels of a hierarchical structure. The highest level is represented by the Outcome indicators which reflect the... (More)
The HASTA indicator framework, covering the three dimensions of sustainability, i.e. Economic, Environmental and Social, to monitor sustainability of transport in Swedish cities was elaborated.

Under the three sustainability dimensions, there are 6 sustainability aspects (indicator groups), 2-3 per dimension; these are Efficiency, Accessibility (Economic dimension), Accessibility, Safety,

Liveability (Social dimension); Emissions, Resource use (Environmental dimension). The accessibility indicator group is related with both economic and social sustainability. The individual indicators are structured in three levels of a hierarchical structure. The highest level is represented by the Outcome indicators which reflect the sustainability target in the subject area of the indicator.

These Outcome indicators are of both objectively measurable variables and subjective variables, reflecting how the inhabitants experience sustainability of transport in their city. On the lowest level, the Input indicators provide information on possible measures to make improvements in transport sustainability. On the intermediate level, the Output indicators show the effect of the adopted measures (Input indicators). There are 19 Outcome indicators, 22 Output indicators and 42 Input indicators. (Less)
