Title

Building the city with emphasis on urban mobility – examples from USA

 

Abstract

In the last decades developed countries have tried to improve and strengthen public transport modes in urban regions, because they have established negative effects of car traffic on mobility: bottlenecks, increased investment in road infrastructure. New movements that have emerged in the nineties in USA, often coined as smart growth, emphasise efficient urban growth, which should be tied to public transport enabling rational prices of infrastructure and better spatial use. Good examples of such developments are shown, such as the San Francisco Bay area (California), Portland (Oregon) and Salt Lake (Utah).

 

Key Words

cities in USA, light railway, public transport and urbanisation, smart growth, urban mobility
