Transport Co-benefits Calculator 


Together with the Transport Co-benefits Guidelines (TCG), the Transport Co-Benefits Calculator provides policymakers, practitioners and other stakeholders with a simple, intuitive tool to quantify co-benefits from transport projects in Asia.

The tool is intended to clarify the steps involved in estimating reductions in CO2 and conventional air pollutants as well time savings, vehicle operating costs, and accidents. It also aims to give different stakeholders a common understanding of how co-benefits were estimated.

Key questions addressed:

  • What are the co-benefits of transportation policies?

Sample data inputs:

  • Number of vehicle
  • Type of vehicles
  • Fuel type
  • Fleet efficiency
  • Traffic volume
  • Number of lanes in roads
