Abstract:

Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Urban Public Transportation Systems, held in Alexandria, Virginia, April 14-18, 2002. Sponsored by Committee on Public Transport of the Transportation and Development Institute of ASCE. In cooperation with Advanced Transit Association; American Public Transportation Association; ASCE National Capital Section; CODATU International Association; Eno Transportation Foundation; Federal Transit Administration; U.S. Dept. of Transportation; Institute of Urban Transport (India); ITS America; Transportation Research Board (TRB) of National Academy of Science; Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University; Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority; the World Bank. This collection contains 45 papers dealing with urban transportation system topics, with an emphasis on sustainable development. As defined by the Brundtland Commission, sustainable development allows people to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Clear understanding of the complex array of necessary policies, techniques, and technologies involved in coordinated and enlightened mass transportation development is essential to ensure a sustainable environment for generations to come. Topics include: socioeconomic characteristics, land use, and travel patterns of the city; the existing urban transportation system and its operations in the city and use by the people; and issues of sustainability related to the city's public transit system.
