Abstract

Due to enhance of number of motor vehicles, the amount of consuming of the world's oil supply is increased and it is the major source of pollution to the surroundings. Base on this, it is vital to use different techniques to provide more opportunities to identify strategies that can help to utilize more efficient from the current transport resources. In Yemen, the rapid increase in the use of the private vehicles has resulted in increased traffic congestion, accidents, inadequate parking space and air pollution, among other problems. Base on these problems, this study attempts to focus on some factors which lead to rise in private vehicle ownership, motorcycle related concern, demand of more public transport, traffic congestion, parking, road safety and air pollution. Hence, this study tries to rectify the major concerns of traffic congestion and other environment hazards. When the mentioned elements are addressed efficiently, the effective contribution can make successful urban development.
