International Walking Data Standard                                                    NEWS    


The INTERNATIONAL WALKING DATA STANDARD on the treatment of walking in travel surveys was adopted at the Walk21 conference in Vienna 2015. The STANDARD aims to

•       Raise the profile of walking

•       Demonstrate the crucial role of good mobility data

•       Improve accuracy and consistency of data collection
   for all modes

•       Allow for comparisons between cities and countries

The Standard was elaborated and reviewed by experts worldwide over several years.

We invite YOU to adopt the Standard in your city, region, country or in your international body to create better transport policies and walking conditions.
