- This work provides a foundation to make heterogeneous alternatives for mobility (transportation modes) compara-ble in the context of sustainability and providing possi-bilities to also compare them in other contexts such as costs or flexibility. The key to a successful comparison of such transportation modes is stated as the selection of se-mantically suitable key performance indicators (KPI) and a reasonable decision analysis method, which will be cov-ered throughout this work. A set of KPIs is selected by considering various existing indicators, like indicators for measuring resource consumption or air pollution. This work provides a method for comparing the relative sus-tainability or any other desired dimension, given the re-quirement that a suitable set of KPIs is selected, of multi-ple modes of personal transportation by using key per-formance indicators and the multi-criteria decision analy-sis method PROMETHEE II. In addition to the introduced objective decision support, the authors also provide a way to enable subjective decision support by taking the prefer-ence-based model of an individual decision-maker into account. A method to enable individual preference based matchmaking is introduced to provide the mathematical foundation for mapping each individual to their subjec-tively optimal transportation mode. Some possible practi-cal use cases which are able to create real world added value by automated appliance of the introduced models are given by the authors as well.
