« The Millennium Cities Database for sustainable transport » : identification des facteurs favorables au développement des transports publics

Abstract : The following paper starts with a dramatic overview of the transport sector: The urban spreading out and the increasing dependence towards the car in the cities of industrialised countries are phenomenon which start to affect dramatically the cities in the developing countries. However, we are all aware of the external costs the car : harmful sound effects, consumption of non-renewable energies, accidents etc. The analysis of the database allows us to emphasise the cities that succeeded in taking up this challenge. They faced the problem by offering an effective system of urban transport, relaying on collective transport without penalising the mobility of their citizens and those of the future generations. Our study thus identifies the factors and measurements favourable to the development of the public transport.
