The first car appeared on British roads in By the year , there may be as many as 29 million vehicles on the British roads. Alternative forms of transport should be encouraged and international laws introduced to control car ownership and use. What are your views on this issue?   The problem of over growing vehicles on roads has become intensive in last few years for many ys people are more encouraged to use other forms of transportation methods and laws are introduced to control this this essay i will elaborate more about the steps that can be taken in order to to control the car ownership and use.

A dynamic model was identified for each city by mode relating per capita patronage to fares, service level, car ownership, income and fuel price.

The results indicated the three cities all had different characteristics and the drivers behind the long-run and short-run trends were also different.

With countries like China and India moving towards mass-automobility, we face the prospects of an environmental and urban health disaster unless alternatives are found. It is time to move beyond the automobile age.

But while public transport has worked well in the dense cores of some big cities, the problem is 5/5(2).

And the fewer riders a bus has, the less fuel-efficient it is, since a bus uses roughly the same amount of energy whether it has five riders or fifty. Furthermore, even the mostly-empty bus has an indirect positive effect on fuel efficiency that a pure car/bus comparison doesn't catch.

Public and Private Provision of Transit in the United States The contracting of transit services by public agencies is often viewed as a recent phenomenon.

Yet the public and private sectors have long collaborated in the provision of urban transportation in the United States. Private car ownership is on the road to becoming a rarity Even in the most car-blighted burg in the world, the toxic parking lot they call Beijing, the appetite for the automobile—as status.

Car ownership elasticities range from 0 to in the SR while the LR estimates diverge from to Hence, car ownership is likely to have no influence on patronage in the SR. Motoring costs have a positive impact on bus use, thus indicating the price-substitution between bus and car use.
