The increasingly rapid growth of global urbanization requires cities to be built in an ecologically sustainable, energy efficient, and livable way. A critical component in achieving these goals is an urban transportation system that use natural resources as reasonably as possible. The outcome of a ten-year data collection research effort by the author and his team, Eco-cities and Green Transport sheds new insights into these challenges using a thorough investigation of traffic systems in 20 cities from 13 countries throughout Asia, Europe and the US. Presenting each case in a systematic, uniform, and structured way, Eco-cities and Green Transport examines different cities at different scales to suggest unique solutions appropriate to each scale. It examines city infrastructure and the built environment, transport system supply and demand, and transport behavior to offer innovative policy solutions for various transport modes. With end of chapter experiences and lessons summarized, Eco-cities and Green Transport provides an in-depth analysis of the advantages and disadvantages for transforming cities and their transport systems to meet residents current and future needs.
