    Sustainable development is one of the most important target of the European Union. Between EU Sustainable Development Strategy’s challenges, sustainable transport represents an essential aim. According to EU statements, “to ensure that our transport systems meet society’s economic, social and environmental needs whilst minimizing their undesirable impacts on the economy, society and the environment”. Our work is a comparative study between EU-27 and one of its member country (Romania) regarding the set of sustainable transport’s indicators, as a statistical overview of progress towards the accomplishment of EU sustainable development strategy’s goals in this sector of activity. As a result of our statistical analysis, we present some measures that can be taken to increase the sustainability of european transport, focusing on reducing the adverse effects of transport activities on the environment and promoting solutions in order to minimise the vehicle’s emissions and costs and thus, to meet the sustainability objectives and to contribute to a sustainable quality of life/';'; '
