Sustainable transport is viewed as an inherent element of sustainable development worldwide and public transportation is one of key contributors of sustainability in most developing countries.Public transport infrastructure is meant to last long and therefore decisions that affect its development, operation and management are crucial to local and national governments, and the public realm. Although there is no unique definition of transport sustainability, various practice and research initiatives emphasize on different aspects of addressing and achieving sustainability in transport thereby establishing multiple definitions and assessment parameters. This paper examines various frameworks and models adopted for addressing the transportation system sustainability and attempts to derive upon a suitable set of indicators and metrics for assessment of publictransport sustainability in context of the city of Ahmedabad in India.
