      • Evaluation Group C (cities without city rail/subway, with population bigger than 300,000 other than Group A)
      • Evaluation Group D (cities without city rail/subway, with population smaller than 300,000 other than Group A)
      • Evaluation Group E (counties)
    • Evaluation method
      • Document evaluation per group based on data collected from participating cities and counties
