Singapore Ranked as World’s Number 2 Smart City

Singapore has come in at 2nd place in the latest Smart Cities Index, narrowly missing out to Copenhagen for top spot.

EasyPark Group, a Stockholm-based ‘smart parking’ company and leading advocate for efficient urban systems, took an original list of 500 cities globally and applied 19 different metrics to rank the cities according to “those which are making their citizens lives smoother through digitalization”. Metrics included penetration of 4G and Wi-Fi hotspots, smartphone usage, car sharing apps, traffic sensors, clean energy, and access to online government services. 4G, plentiful Wi-Fi hotspots and high smartphone usage.

Elsewhere in Asia, Tokyo came in at #6 and Seoul at #21.
