Abstract: The aim of paper is to carry out a benchmarking analysis among European and North Africa, that are often economic centers at national and/or regional level, is linked to the organization of the urban transport system rather than other factors (e.g. social, economic, environmental, urban planning and etc.). The aim of our analysis is to understand if the current public transport system in cities of developing countries can be improved by further organizational and management tools, comparing North Africa’s cities with European ones, using these as benchmarking models for improvement of the overall urban transport system where it is poorly efficient and sustainable.
