Abstract

According to a recent UN report, continuing population growth and urbanization are expected to increase the world’s urban population by 2.5 billion people by 2050, with 2.9 billion extra vehicles. This massive growth in both population and number of vehicles, together with urban transformation and a trend toward mega cities, creates greater and more challenges for achieving smart transportation goals in smart cities. Therefore, new and more integrated modes of transportation, and environment friendly solutions are required to accommodate the rising demands of high liveability in smarter cities that offer safe, secure, affordable, reliable and sustainable transportation in old and new markets alike.
