Abstract: The purpose of this study is to analyze the productivity, technical change, pure technical efficiency change and scale efficiency change of urban public transit and road land utilization, taking Zhejiang Province as an example. The methods of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and the Malmquist Index are employed. Results indicate that the productivity of urban public transit and road land utilization in Zhejiang Province is progressing. Pure technical efficiency decreases slightly, scale efficiency increases a little, and technical change improves distinctly. The urban public transit development and road land input is suitable. It is suggested that Quzhou city should improve technology in urban public transit and road land utilization.
