China Urban Transport Database (CUTD)

This Research Brief presents research achievements and experience gained in constructing the China Urban Transport Database (CUTD), which has been developed according to the principles of operability, sustainability, scalability, and accessibility.

The major objectives of CUTD are to provide data and a scientific basis for policies and planning decisions as well as a firm basis for scientific research in urban transport. This brief is both published in English and in Chinese.

Dr. Cheng LI and Dr. Xianglong LIU, the authors of this brief, are Associate Professors at CUSTReC and the principal researchers for the CUTD project.

The China Urban Sustainable Transport Research Center (CUSTReC), originally a VREF supported Center of Excellence, is the official think tank for China’s Ministry of Transportation (MOT). This center aims to explore integrated solutions to realizing the sustainable development of urban transport and played a key role in promoting the China Transit Metropolis project and in developing the information required for the China Urban Transport Database (CUTD).
