Abstract

Non-motorized is vital for sustainable living. The characteristics of sustainable transport are safe, comfortable and efficient in terms of economic and energy consumption and minimize environmental pollution. Today, transportation systems in most cities are no longer sustainable due to lack of natural materials such as oil reserves, increasing the number of deaths and injuries by motor vehicle accidents and traffic congestion. The carbon emissions into the atmosphere contribute to environmental pollution in terms of quality deficiencies that affects mobility of life in general. This study aimed is to design sustainable transport in terms of non-motor vehicle for a city that promises a better world for future generations. It provides strategies to change the choice of transport modes to road users of motor vehicles to non-motor vehicles through integration of land use and transportation planning. By improving pedestrian path and cycling zone to increase non-motorized travel and reduce motor vehicles travel. The use of non-motorized transportation such as cycling and walking is not only to reduce carbon but also healthy lifestyle and a physical activity.
