Sustainable urban transport : smart technology initiatives in Singapore
Debnath, Ashim Kumar, Haque, Md. Mazharul, Chin, Hoong Chor, & Yuen, Belinda (2011) Sustainable urban transport : smart technology initiatives in Singapore. Transportation Research Record, 2243(2011), pp. 38-45.
Achieving sustainability is one of the major goals of many urban transportation systems. Over the years, many innovative policies have been attempted to achieve an efficient, safe, and sustainable transport system. Those policies often require smart technologies to assist implementation process and enhance effectiveness. This paper discusses how sustainability can be promoted by embedding smart technologies in a modern transportation system. In particular, this paper studies the transport system of Singapore to address how this system is addressing sustainability through the use of smart technologies. Various technological initiatives in managing traffic flow, monitoring and enforcement, sharing real-time information, and managing revenues are discussed in light of their potentiality in addressing sustainability issues. The Singapore experience provides a useful reference for the cities intending to develop and promote a sustainable transport system.
