Sustainable Mobility

The dominant urban planning and development models in Arab cities favor car centric infrastructure, overlooking other more sustainable modes such as public transport and cycling. This planning approach, when adopted, results in negative consequences like traffic congestion and pollution. Modern practices in transportation planning aim to integrate land use planning with the urban transportation network by studying the distribution of activities and directing public transport to serve areas with high population density. Municipalities are embracing modern methods to study routes and enhance the efficiency of public transportation operations.
