      Transportation sector energy consumption by fuel. Worldwide, petroleum and other liquid fuels. are the dominant source of transportation energy, although their share of total transportation energy declines over the IEO projection period, . The transportation sector encompasses all movement of people and 28 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can be attributed to this sector, and the overwhelming share of these emissions are from CO 2 emitted as the result of burning transportation fuels derived from petroleum (EPA, c).

Congress. Senate. Committee on Environment and Public Works. This is the only current and in print book covering the full field of transit systems and technology.

Beginning with a history of transit and its role in urban development, the book proceeds to define relevant terms and concepts, and then present detailed coverage of all urban transit modes and the most efficient system designs for each.

Achieving Energy Savings by Intelligent Transportation Systems Investments in the Context of Smart Cities Chen, Yang; Ardila-Gomez, Arturo; Frame, Gladys () Investments in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are beginning to take place in the context of smart city initiatives Urban transportation and energy many by: The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.

The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy. Highway vehicles accounted for percent of the total, and used five times more energy than all other modes combined in 2 Light-duty vehicles (passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, minivans, and pick-up trucks) accounted for percent of highway energy use and percent of total transportation energy use.

• B - partially separated tracks/lanes. Section outlines energy use for U.S. transportation overall. Passenger and freight transport are covered in Sections andrespectively.

Section briefly discusses the effects of alternative fuels on the efficiency of highway vehicles. Much of the discussion in this chapter is “vehicle-centric” in the sense that it focuses on.

Mass transit in the United States includes buses, bus rapid transit, trolleys, rail, and ferries. Transit buses are particularly well-suited for alternative fuels, and more than 40% run on these lower-emissions, cost-saving mass transit vehicles can carry more passengers, they have the potential to achieve a higher passenger-mile per gallon.

The patterns demonstrate the energy and CO 2 reduction potential of reducing the role of the automobile in urban transport systems and enhancing the role of public transport and non-motorized modes.

Motorcycles are also relatively energy- and CO 2 -efficient modes, but they are associated with high local smog emissions, noise, and traffic. However, most previous LC studies of transportation modes have compared alternative technologies within the same mode or compared a limited number of modes, and most have focused on one or two.

Policy Packages for Energy-Efficient Urban Transport – Exploiting Synergies. A proper policy to enhance energy efficiency in the urban transport system must address all three levels of energy-efficient transport: system efficiency, travel and vehicle efficiency.

Strategies and policy packages deliver that kind of mixed approach. Energy Analysis for Urban Transportation Systems: A Preliminary Assessment David T. Hartgen, Planning and Research Bureau, New York State Department of Transportation This paper discusses and evaluates the capability of conventional urban transportation planning system (UTPS) procedures in dealing with energy issues.

A 21st century urban transportation system will have a multitude of modes (walking, bikes, car-sharing, transit, car-on-demand, private cars and probably other innovative technologies such as pedelecs, Yikes, etc.) seamlessly linked together.
