Public transportation is undoubtedly one of the more essential things in a nation as it allows its citizens to move seamlessly from one place to another.

In the Urban Mobility Readiness Index by the Oliver Wyman Forum, in partnership with the University of California, Berkeley, we see them rank 60 major cities worldwide “on their preparedness for mobility’s next chapter”.

It is said on the website that this edition will focus on sustainability and public transit as it is the “backbone to a resilient economy.”

The public transit sub-index ranked how well cities manage their public transportation system and how many commuters use them.

“Public transit is by far the most eco‑friendly way to enable large groups of people to move around and can help businesses attract the workers they need and keep city centers buzzing with activity.”

Without further ado, here are the top 10 cities under the public transit sub-index.

  1. Hong Kong
  2. Zurich
  3. Stockholm
  4. Singapore
  5. Helsinki
  6. Oslo
  7. Tokyo
  8. Paris
  9. Berlin
  10. London

Malaysia ranked 23 out of 60 in this sub-index. Furthermore, by clicking on the city profile, we’re able to see what they believe is lacking in our system.

The ranking which was made by the 3 sub-indexes pointed out that we are quite behind on the readiness for urban mobility and sustainable mobility, but we do not lose out on public transit.

It was said that Kuala Lumpur has a wide variety of public transit modes which is strong. However, there is a high number of road traffic incidents that they said are the worst on the Urban Mobility Readiness Index.

“Malaysia has a fragmented road network. Few residents currently bike or walk on a daily basis, and the city would benefit from investment in cycling infrastructure and in sidewalks.”


Well, this is certainly true and with the new government, we hope that they will be able to improve our public transportation system!
