This paper discusses a database called "Millennium Cities Database for Sustainable Transport" (MCD, for short), which contains data about 100 cities in the world. The data are related to economics, taxis, demographics, urban structure, parking, private vehicle numbers and use, road networks, individual mobility and transportation mode choice, public transit networks, efficiency - overall - of the transportation system and its environmental impact. Users can utilize the MCD to evaluate the performances of their cities and transportation networks, measuring the performance against 230 elements. The MCD can also measure the economic and environmental impacts of urban sprawl; and provide a means for comparing public transit and automobile performance with regard to costs and environmental protection.
