In this research, it was observed that quantification of the sustainability process of the urban transport. This was considered to be important as it had enabled to focus on the transport and land use sustainability. The paper was observed to have reviewed the main initiatives that handled the challenge of gauging the transport sustainability. This was done by the use of long lists of pointers or indicators. In order to address this challenge, a method was developed which was used for the obtaining of a “composite transport sustainability index” in the Melbourne statistical local areas (SLAs). In this research, 9 sustainability indicators that are relevant to the urban transport were used. The focus of this research was to ensure that the people were allowed to maintain their current living standards and factored in the ways to induce sustainability in these operations. This is an important way to ensure that quality of life was maintained along with the resource management techniques. This study is important as it sheds lights into the important processes and variables that need to factored in development of an urban sustainable plan. The issue in this research is that it focuses on the different variables and less focus is given to the ways to address the innate issues and challenges. These are addressed in the other research that is considered below.
