Abstract

Economic development and prosperity of countries depend on cities. The urbanization and urban cities gets life from the transportation sector. Malaysian urban transportation has developed in a rapid pace but still needs to meet certain demands of the growing economy and population. This study aims to focus on some of those issues like rise in private vehicle ownerships, motorcycle related concerns, traffic congestion, demand of more public transport, parking, road safety and air pollution. All or some of these factors are dependent on each other. So, rectifying one by one will alleviate the major concerns of traffic congestion and other environmental hazards. When each of these factors is addressed the effective contribution can make successful urban development.
