Abstract

Due to the increasing global population as well as quick expansion, transportation requirement has increased respectively. Presently, the demand for establishing conveyance technologies and infrastructural systems targeted at meeting this growing need is currently crucial. Following the Industrial Revolution, the number of private vehicles has escalated regardless of the lack of infrastructural capacity, in which the traffic issues are now being tackled. Moreover, expansion can be viewed as an approach for sustainability, as well as a quality of life with reduced waste, fewer resource utilization, a smaller amount of carbonated gases, and further energy proficiency. In urban regions and surrounding areas, traffic emissions and their pollutants are considered to be a disturbing matter due to their association among the total death increase, lung cancer hazard and deteriorating of respirational well-being. In order to resolve the aforementioned issues, conveyance technologies require enhancement, which also includes promoting the utilization of sustainable transportation like walking/cycling and encouraging authorities and representatives to progress compulsory regulations to perform such sustainable transportations. The following research objective is to integrate the theory of multi-criteria decision making method within green transport as well as enhancing traveling by means of public commute, bicycles and walking. Moreover, this research works towards assessing and comparing the more conventional sustainable transport substitutes by utilizing multi-criteria decision methodology. Fuzzy PROMETHEE is the decision-making methodology implemented within the study.
