TECHNIQUES FOR SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

This paper presents a discussion of sustainable transportation planning, as well as a wide range of techniques which support the principles of sustainability. Sustainability is defined as "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." To meet this goal, transportation systems should seek to be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable, while at the same time providing maximum accessibility to goods and services. This paper describes how sustainable transportation techniques can reduce vehicle trip generation from a community or neighborhood by as much as 40 percent.
