Due to its negative impacts as traffic delay, congestion, deteriorating air quality ,energy consumption high rates and environmental deteriorations. These negative impacts show clearly and significantly in developing countries rather than developed ones. Developed countries take actions towards these problems and use the technological tools, new science applications and simulation software’s to investigate, collect data, analyzes, and disseminates data to users and plan a big framework [1]. Developed countries allocate an appropriate part of the general budget to transport problems solutions in the forms of ITS implementation and cost effective…show more content…
Modal split models’ trends in many urban cities (with over 250,000 inhabitants) rely also on public modes for example, Bratislava’s public modal share was 70% in 2004, Bern in 2001 was 54%, Tallinn in 2004 was 50% , Lisbon in 2001 was 46% and Stockholm in 2004 was 43% [2].
