Towards smart urban transportation in Emerging Asia
Transportation challenges, particularly traffic congestion, can be a serious constraint to urban economies, in addition to creating a number of social and environmental problems. As a result of rapid growth in population and the use of private motor vehicles, congestion is a common issue in many Emerging Asian cities. Policy options to be considered in improving urban transportation systems include the development of efficient and accessible public transportation systems; implementing pricing and other mechanisms for affecting vehicle ownership and use; reforming land use and urban planning; adopting new modes of work, including teleworking and flexible hours; and incorporating new technologies, such as through smart city initiatives, in managing transportation challenges.
