Urban cities in developing countries have several factors that creates problem to sustainable transport system. The population growth, high income and rapid growth of cities and urbanisation has led increase in travel demand.
Transport networks must be able to support the economic growth, growing populations, and the diverse expectations of urban activity. There is clear global evidence that a comprehensive and well-performing transport system is an important enabler of sustained economic prosperity. To create a sustainable system, we have to transform our public transport network to make it more attractive to all commuters and overcome problems of congestion and delays that have direct costs on people and businesses.
Many cities and communities in Asia have not seen such massive improvements for decades, yet new opportunities have brought technical and commercial challenges. The main challenges facing mass transportation policymakers are the dispersal of development through suburban growth and increases in capital and operating costs, which require either higher fares, greater subsidies, or both.
This 2-day conference will bring together government officials, public transport providers, traffic control departments and various other organisations and ministries to discuss on the improvement and transformation in the public transport arena. It will address the challenges to create the strong link between transportation development and urban growth.
