List includes metropolitan areas according only studies of ESPON, Eurostat, and this reason some metropolitan areas, like Italian Genoa Metropolitan Area (population is over as of according "CityRailway" Official Report), aren't included in this list, with data by other statistic survey institutes.

Figures in the first column come from the ESPON project. This report compares urbanisation trends in OECD countries on the basis of a newly defined OECD methodology which enables cross-country comparison of the socio-econimic and environmental performance of metropolitan areas in OECD countries.

The methodology is presented and results from its application to 27 OECD countries are discussed together with policy implication both on national.

Analysis: "Madrid Region public transport system: a focus on intermodality" Since its creation inConsorcio Regional de Transportes de Madrid (CRTM), the Public Transport Authority for the Madrid Greater region, has considered the integration of the different modes of public transport to be a high-priority objective in its operations, among others.

Traditionally, transport in European cities mainly meant the mobility of pedestrians; for example, in the Netherlands there was an emphasis on cycling but in the more mountainous or middle European areas, the reliance was on public transport, buses, trams and rail.

In Western Europe urban planning prevented the repetition of the mistakes. Metropolitan Governance and Spatial Planning explores the relationship between metropolitan decision-making and strategies to co-ordinate spatial policy.

This relationship is examined across 20 cities of Europe and the similarities and differences analysed. Cities are having to formulate their urban policies in a very complex and turbulent environment.To identify an actual system or propose a system that provides the following in an urban area of more than 1, population: Transit choice (automobile competitive public transport service) for at least 90 percent of trips and passenger kilometers in the particular urban area.management (demand-responsive public transportation, car pooling and sharing, access control, road-use charging), trip planning systems/real-time traveler information, and signal priorities for public transport.
