Abstract

Transportation is a key driver of development in cities by providing safe, efficient and reliable transportation for people, goods and services. Public transportation plays a vital role in contributing to a city’s standard of living by providing mobility; which stimulates efficient economic activities, promotes equitable social conditions, and creates sustainable people-oriented urban environments. It is therefore, an important subject of public policy and an effective tool for achieving sustainable development. In this paper, we examine the policies and transport outcomes of Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and Seoul to find out how traffic is kept flowing in these dense and fast-paced cities.
