The European Platform on Mobility Management (EPOMM) just unveiled a new interactive web tool that makes it easy to compare transportation data between cities internationally. Now analysts, designers, and planners can conveniently view data on transportation habits in hundreds of cities. Unfortunately, all of this data highlights how far behind American cities are compared to European cities.

Less than 7 percent of Americans use public transportation once a week. A glance at the interactive EPOMM Modal Split Tool (TEMS for short) shows that London residents regularly commute by public transit more than 5 times as often as the average American. Residents of Bruges are more than 25 times more likely to bike to work than the average American. As TEMS illustrates, American cities have a lot of improvements to work on, but also scores of exemplary cities to inspire progress.
