UNESCAP has developed The Sustainable Urban Transport Index (SUTI) to help summarize, track and compare the performance of Asian cities in regards to sustainable urban transport and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), more specifically target 11.2. The objective of SUTI is to evaluate the status of the urban transportation system in cities. SUTI is a quantitative tool for member states and cities to compare their performance on sustainable urban transport systems and policies with peers. It can help to identify additional policies and strategies required to improve the urban transportation systems and services. It includes ten indicators for the System, Economic, Environmental, and Social domains. SUTI also assesses the progress of transport contribution towards the achievement of SDGs. Jakarta, especially Jabodetabek (Greater Jakarta), is an urban agglomeration area in Indonesia which is growing rapidly and has many problems in the transportation sector. Sustainable transportation is part of the government's program to ensure the smooth running of urban transportation. For this reason, it is necessary to measure the sustainability of transportation in Greater Jakarta through SUTI. Data collection to develop SUTI in Greater Jakarta includes field data collection, data collection from the appropriate authority, and reviewing various relevant sources. Due to the Covid-19 situation, all data collection was from secondary data based on relevant parties in Indonesia.

On the other hand, consultation meetings (online) with GJTA, Ministry of Transportation Indonesia, Directorate of Land Transportation, Directorate of Traffic, Ministry of Work, Toll Road Authority, Police Traffic Department, Environmental Division, and relevant stakeholders organized during data collection and analysis. Implemented in Jakarta in 2017, and upon learning the successful prospect of the project, the SUTI project is to continue in 2021 to see its improvement and development in sustainable transportation. The ten indicators and methodology to model the SUTI for cities in Indonesia are very useful for the city policymakers in improving their urban transport system. This index can be used by Greater Jakarta Transport Authority to rate their city performance annually. Besides, collecting the data itself in a pandemic situation is a major problem. Therefore, a system to update the database annually is needed and make it available online and updated from time to time. SUTI for Greater Jakarta verifies what has been identified in the GJTA master plans. SUTI results show that the geometric mean index for Greater Jakarta is 56.16 where each indicator shows results as shown in the following table.
