Abstract

Motor vehicles consume a big share of the world's oil supply. They are, also, the major source of pollution to the surroundings. Efficient designs, alternative fuels and rational transportation systems can help solve the problem. In Libya, 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. Earlier studies in this subject, however, focused primarily on car safety issues rather than identifying factors influencing car use and car user mode choice behavior. To provide a solution to these problems, this study focused on providing personal transport users road transport alternatives as a countermeasure aimed at shifting car users to other modes in order to reduce travel time, air and noise pollution and to enhance road safety.
