    asset based on its efficiency both physically and functionally, in addition to its relative utilization. The proposed methodological valuation framework addresses three main questions. 1. Is the transportation infrastructure properly maintained or preserved? 2. What quality of service is the transportation infrastructure providing? 3.   Poor transportation makes this contact difficult and hurts our national productivity. Another less obvious effect of transportation systems is on the cost of housing. There are many factors that contribute to the cost of housing, but among these is the nature of a city's transportation system.

A sustainable transportation system also requires the provision of a diverse, integrated and balanced public transportation services. 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. This paper measures the efficiency of public transport in world cities using three methods: data envelopment analysis, order-α, and analyze cities’ transport systems and environmental load by calculating the shadow prices of CO 2 emitted from urban transport.

We find that efficiencies are lower in several cities in Europe, South Africa, and Western Australia, Cited by: Matthew Drennan and Charles Brecher. “Does Public Transit Use Enhance the Economic Efficiency of Urban Areas?” Journal of Transportation and Land Use, Forthcoming.
