The ITF is working on a framework for comparing and benchmarking accessibility to services across cities.
The framework will be firstly developed for Europe, but is planned to be expanded at a global level in the future. This work will include a database and a visualisation tool that will use information from the database and show results for selected indicators.

Among the most important qualities of this work are the following:
