This report aims at identifying the research issues and challenges that need to be addressed to achieve sustainable transportation system for Pune city. The same is achieved by understanding the current system and trends of urbanization, motorization and modal shares in Pune; and their impact on mobility and safety (the two basic goals of transportation) as well as environment. Cities should respect nature, consider the urban ecological environment as an asset, integrate environmental issues into urban planning and administration, and accelerate the transition to sustainable development. The work proposes a procedure to evaluate sustainable mobility in Pune city. A set of indicator according to three dimensions of sustainability, i.e., environment, economics, and social aspects, are proposed to evaluate mobility in Pune city. The sustainable mobility evaluation is based on an index calculated through a weighted multi-criteria combination procedure. The basic implication of the analysis is that urban-transportation sustainability can be greatly enhanced if there are profound changes in urban structures and activities that can slow or reverse the growth in the use of private automobiles and can make transit and other modes attractive.In this report we have calculated the social index of the Pune city with respect to social indicator analysis.
