Integrated Urban Transport Planning (Self-paced)

As the developing world is urbanizing rapidly, urban mobility becomes a critical issue. Urban mobility impacts not only the health and well being of urban residents, but also is key to the economic and energy efficiency of urban areas. There is an urgent need for effective and efficient planning of urban transport that addresses the challenges of growing travel demand in a way that is equitable, sustainable, and affordable. Urban transport planning is very complex and urban mobility solutions need to be multi-dimensional in nature. It needs a comprehensive and holistic approach requiring a combination of supply side and demand side measures. Good urban transport planning should be more than just engineering and should encompass other important considerations such as land use planning, energy efficiency, emissions characteristics, traffic management, human behavior, economics, finance, public policy, governance, health, safety, gender, disability, affordability, ITS, etc. It is important to fully understand the linkages among these different dimensions. The key objective of the e-learning course is to develop capacity amongst those policy makers and practitioners responsible for urban transport planning and decision making, to understand urban transport in all relevant dimensions, and develop urban transport plans, programs and projects that are more integrated and sustainable. The course will comprise the following 7 modules: Module 1 – Introduction and overview Module 2 – Methodologies Module 3 – Governance Module 4 – Public Transport & Complementary Services Module 5 – Beyond Public Transport Module 6 – Financing and PPP Module 7 – Social and environmental issues
