Public Transport Authority as an Efficient Solution for Sustainable Urban Transport Development: A Case Study in Hai Phong City

In Vietnam, a developing country with a large number of motorcycles along with a rapidly increasing number of cars, the authorities give priority to the development of public transport. However, there is a huge gap between reality and planning and so far the results are below expectation. The paper is to introduce a public transport authority (PTA) which has mechanisms and policies to ensure the promotion of public transportation and to close the gap between planning and implementation. A case study of Hai Phong city was employed to carry out an analysis of current traffic and public transportation; and to describe the setup and phasing of the PTA. It was proposed to introduce parking fees in the city center for both cars and motorcycles which may render sufficient revenues to cover both the expenses of the PTA and the indispensable subsidies for transport operation.
