    Abstract

    The magnitude of co-benefits from policy targeting climate change mitigations has been widely promoted due to the desirable win-win results of such policies towards both local and global targets. This review looks at studies on quantitative environmental and health co-benefits from various modal shifts to public transport scenarios. A systematic review was conducted to evaluate publications from 2004 to August 2015. A total of 153 articles were identified and 9 articles fulfilled all the criteria in this review. Many studies that have been done merely focused on the environmental benefits, especially on reduced air pollution from public transport in cities.
