ABDALA, Ivanilde Maria de Rezende  e  PASQUALETTO, Antônio. Sustainable Urban Mobility Index in Goiânia as a tool for public policies. Cad. Metrop. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.30, pp.489-511. ISSN 2236-9996.

This paper approaches concepts of mobility and Sustainable Urban Mobility and their interactions with the urban environment. Seeking improvements in the movement of persons and services, in particular in the use of vehicles, it leads to investigations aiming at satisfactory mobility in public spaces and at the quality of life of the population. Thus, researchers discuss the subject in search of indices to measure parameters. In this study, the aim was to calculate the Sustainable Urban Mobility Index (SUMI) to the city of Goiânia (Central-Western Brazil) with data survey in 2011 and 2012, adopting the methodology proposed by Costa (2008). The calculation was made in the second half of 2012 and revealed that, to solve the problem of traffic and transport, it is necessary to associate the index with the urban policy. Therefore, it is recommended that SIMU is used as a tool to assist in and contribute to the proposition, formulation, implementation, and monitoring of public policies related to the sustainable urban mobility of Goiânia.
