Examining sustainable urban transportation

I apply the framework to the city of Santiago de Chile, utilizing data from a household travel survey and a real estate cadastre, specifying a nested destination and mode choice model, and examining a subset of discretionary trips by seven different travel modes. Policy and Practice, 89, Examines transportation policy developments across a variety of modes, including some international analysis Shows how new policy changes, such as changes in regulation, affect overall transportation system performance Features chapters that use innovative methodologies, such as Bayesian techniques, qualitative analysis, and an attribute-incorporated Malmquist productivity index Examines the ways that policy impacts depend on a variety of factors, and shows how economic tools can be used to gain greater insights into the likely impacts of policy and the desirability of various policies Analyzes transport prices, quality of service, safety, the use of information technology and operating issues, highlighting how transportation enhances quality of life.

Case study in the Washington DC area Bikesharing has gradually become an adopted form of mobility in urban area recent years as one sustainable transportation mode to bring us many social, environmental, economic, and health-related benefits and rewards.

A distinguishing feature of his work is that it always had policy implications. From the lecture and the discussion of our experiences we determined a that a sustainable transportation system should provide information legibly and in real time, infrastructure should be well maintained, and public transportation should be multimodal and well connected.

One can expect greater disaggregation of shipments as well as increases in delivery frequencies, which may be particularly disruptive to cities. Transportation and Development Topics on the Transportation and Development Track may include, but are not limited to, transit, walkability, bicycle and pedestrian planning, mobility for vulnerable populations, equity issues, and infrastructure design.

Later in the day we met with Astrid Mayer who led a guided tour through Freiburg focusing on new developments in bike infrastructure, traffic claiming, and designated biking and pedestrian lanes.

Examining Transportation

It was wonderful to see how lush greenery on the outside of the building can be used as a means of improving the buildings energy efficiency.

Understanding the influence of the transition to licensure. The effects of urban form on ambient air pollution and public health risk: Effect of a community-based pedestrian injury prevention program on driver yielding behavior at marked crosswalks, Accident Analysis and Prevention, 93, In this paper, aiming to help improving sustainability in multimodal transportation through BSS, the authors perform a systematic data analysis to examine underlying patterns and characteristics of the system dynamics in a bikeshare network and to acquire implications of the patterns and characteristics for decision making.

In addition to examining various transportation policy issues in the U.

Graduate Certificate: Sustainable Community Planning

Inquiries from prospective doctoral students are welcome. Variations by income, gender, and modal availability are explored. This project explored the material and energy implications of weight reduction on a vehicle life-cycle and vehicle fleet system-level basis.

The two main lessons that can be derived from the lecture are: There is increased research toward better understanding of bikesharing systems BSS in urban environments.

Factors to be considered include the role of bureaucratic and political actors, organized interests and non-governmental groups, the importance and influence of networks, and the potential for new models and options for the engagement of stakeholders and citizens at large.

Approaches to meet U. In this study, we propose to collect data and develop models to design urban logistics management strategies to cope with changing goods transport needs.

Sustainable Urban Transportation

Not to say that there were no cars, just fewer and more consciously driving. Also, drawing from the large research base exploring the role of the built environment on transportation, I develop several models that assess the influence of the built environment on travel behavior, in particular, motor vehicle ownership and use.

Walkability and cardiometabolic risk factors: There is a clear emphasis on public transit as opposed to automobile dependency.

However, the global warming impact may worsen if there are significant carbon emissions upstream during power generation. Diversity and Justice Topics on the Diversity and Justice track may include, but are not limited to, immigration issues, conflict, compromise and negotiation, methods for citizen participation, urban displacement, and gentrification.

Considering the unavailability of a standardized set of indicators to evaluate transport sustainability performance in Dhaka, this research identified a set of 14 subjective indicators based on an extensive literature survey and local expert opinion.

These models, combined, enable the exploration of sustainable mobility within a given city. Transportation Research Part A: This paper sets out a comprehensive analysis of how people perceive different attributes of sustainability of the existing transport operation in Dhaka.

Sustainable urban mobility : exploring the role of the built environment

Whether it was almost getting closed in the tram doors, leaping over luggage to not miss our stop, struggling from boat to boat, or having a bus break down, our experiences thus far have helped to define what makes sustainable transportation.

The study covers seven important aspects of bikeshare transportation systems, which are respectively trip demand and flow, operating activities, use and idle times, trip purpose, origin-destination flows, mobility, and safety.

Tong received her doctorate in geography and master's in civil engineering from The Ohio State University. As a tribute to Theodore Keeler, this book examines transportation policy issues across a variety of transportation industries, including aviation, railroads, highways, motor carrier transport, automobiles, urban transit, and ocean shipping.
