Sustainable transport infrastructure : perspectives for sustainable urban and transport development
Dur , Fatih, Yigitcanlar, Tan, & Bunker, Jonathan M. (2011) Sustainable transport infrastructure : perspectives for sustainable urban and transport development. In Green Technologies : Concepts, Methodologies, Tools and Applications. IGI Global, New York, pp. 153-170.
Many economic, social and environmental sustainability problems associated with typical urban transportation systems have revealed the importance of three domains of action: vehicle, infrastructure and user. These domains need to be carefully reconsidered in search of a sustainable urban development path. Although intelligent transportation systems have contributed substantially to enhancing efficiency, safety and comfort of travel, questions related to users’ behaviors and preferences, which stimulate considerable environmental effects, still needed to be further examined. In this chapter, options for smart urban transportation infrastructure development and the technological means for achieving broader goals of sustainable communities and urban development are explored.
