Urban transport systems need to be analyzed from various perspectives: the offer on one hand, the demand on the other hand, but also their negative externalities (risks of transport systems).

These three dimensions are rarely apprehended in an integrated perspective. The advanced transport systems considered include: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) systems in urban area(s), electric and fuel cell passenger cars, high speed tilting trains, High Speed Rail (HSR), Trans Rapid Maglev (TRM), Evacuated Tube Transport system (ETT), advanced commercial subsonic and Supersonic Transport Brand: Springer-Verlag London.

Bus operator First Bus has launched what has been described as a UK first and a “pioneering” booking system in response to coronavirus and passenger concerns about using public transport.

Bookings can be made up to seven days in advance via the Book My Bus Ride website (live from BST 27 July) with the aim to allow passengers to better plan their journeys without having. Read the latest chapters of Advances in Transport Policy and Planning atElsevier’s leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature.

What proves to be particularly important for advanced transport systems is the use of environmentally friendly solutions that reduce their negative environmental impacts; accordingly, the book also addresses this aspect. With regard to the research results discussed and the selected solutions applied, the book prim.

Sustainable Urban Transport – An Introduction The Economic Assessment of Health Benefits of Active Transport Mode Decisions and Context Change – What About the Attitudes.

The book presents the main global standards and dominant models for the estimation of the urban freight transport demand, i.e. of freight transport needs in urban areas.

Then it presents the methods for estimating and simulating transport and distribution schemes (i.e. transport supply) as well as a proposal for integrated supply-demand modeling.

Optibus, the cutting-edge software platform for public transportation, was selected among hundreds of candidates as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers”.

Optibus plans and schedules the movements of vehicles and drivers, improving mass transit in hundreds of cities around the world. The company has also been supporting transportation agencies dealing with the complex [ ].

Why can't it be more like the fast, convenient systems in Europe. Unlike Europeans, most urban Australians live on far-flung suburban blocks rather than in high-density apartments. Most urban travel is to widespread suburban locations rather than to the city centre.

It is often argued that fast, efficient public transport is impossible in. Subways and Urban Transport Since operations began inthe MTR Railway has become one of the most important elements of Hong Kong's transportation network.

Abstract. Transport plays an integral role in socioeconomic participation in any given society. Yet, traditional urban transport planning has neglected this important role and has limited its focus to the efficiency of the transport network itself, thereby overlooking the more difficult to measure socioeconomic implications.

The Urban Book Series is a resource for urban studies and geography research worldwide. It provides a unique and innovative resource for the latest developments in the field, nurturing a comprehensive and encompassing publication venue for urban studies, urban geography, planning and.

Additionally, the course focuses on transport infrastructure and freight planning. Apart from providing a comprehensive knowhow about the traditional theories and models of urban transport systems, it also introduces the advanced techniques that are coming up in recent times like activity based models, shared mobility etc.

As the first research-focused book dedicated to this important topic, the Handbook on Transport and Urban Transformation in China offers new insight into the various opportunities and challenges brought by fast-paced motorization and urban development, and explores them in broad spatial-economic, environmental, social, and institutional dimensions.

The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.

The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy.

This is a great book: easy to read, well-informed and with excellent notes and references. It starts by confronting many of the myths and conventional wisdom about the challenges and problems of urban transport, then goes on to clearly explain options for transport in towns and cities, illustrating the ideas with inspiring case studies from continental Europe and the s: 3.

Megacities have frequently received a disproportionate amount of attention over other sizes of cities in recent discourse on urban sustainability. In this article, the authors argue that a focus on smaller and medium-sized cities is crucial to achieving substantial progress towards more sustainable urban development, not only because they are home to at least a quarter of the world’s.

Urban history is a field of history that examines the historical nature of cities and towns, and the process of approach is often multidisciplinary, crossing boundaries into fields like social history, architectural history, urban sociology, urban geography, business history, and archaeology.

Urbanization and industrialization were popular themes for 20th-century historians. Transit investments, if well integrated with urban development, promote sustainable urban forms with promising outcomes.

Key initiatives for reversing automobile dependency include (1) shift­ing travel from private motorized vehicles to nonmotorized and public transport, and (2) reducing sprawl by promoting transit-oriented developments (TODs. In this book, Chien and Wan synthesize information gleaned from more than papers spanning the fields of hydraulic engineering, mathematics, physics, geology, rheology, and chemistry.
