Sustainable transportation systems are the need of modern times. [...] Key Method Fuzzy TOPSIS is used to generate aggregate scores for sustainability assessment and selection of best alternative. In step 3, sensitivity analysis is performed to determine the influence of criteria weights on the decision making process. A numerical illustration is provided to demonstrate the applicability of the approach. The strength of the proposed work is its practical applicability and the ability to generate good quality…Expand
Selection of sustainable urban transportation alternatives using an integrated intuitionistic fuzzy Choquet integral approach
TLDR
It is indicated that dependencies among decision criteria significantly affect the selection process of the most sustainable urban transportation system and can alter the rankings. Expand
Selection of Alternative Fuels for Sustainable Urban Transportation under Multi-criteria Intuitionistic Fuzzy Environment
Abstract The unrestrained expansion in urbanization and increasing development of new means of transports result in major urban land use and transportation system which is socially, economically andExpand
An integrated Decision-Making Approach for Road Transport Evaluation in a Sustainable Supply Chain
TLDR
An integrated quantitative evaluation technique is proposed to narrow the identified gap in sustainability evaluation based on fuzzy multiple criteria decision-making approaches and is applied on a real-world case study. Expand
Estimation of Performance Indices for the Planning of Sustainable Transportation Systems
TLDR
This study proposes a system of systems (SOS) and a fuzzy logic modeling approach that shows that the Transportation and Activity systems follow a positive trend, with similar periods of growth and contractions; in contrast, the environmental system follows a reverse pattern. Expand
An indicator-based integrated methodology for evaluating sustainability in transportation systems using multivariate statistics and fuzzy logic
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to quantify and evaluate transport sustainability from an integrated perspective. It is argued that transportation systems being interdisciplinary and complex,Expand
Sustainability Indicator Selection by a Novel Triangular Intuitionistic Fuzzy Decision-Making Approach in Highway Construction Projects
TLDR
The proposed approach accounts for risk attitudes of experts and entropy measures under a triangular intuitionistic fuzzy (TIF) environment, to handle the inherent uncertainty and vagueness that is present throughout the evaluation process. Expand
Investigating ideal-solution based multicriteria decision making techniques for sustainability evaluation of urban mobility projects
TLDR
This paper is investigating application of ideal solution based multicriteria decision making techniques namely fuzzy TOPSIS, fuzzy VIKOR, and fuzzy GRA for sustainability evaluation of urban mobility projects under uncertainty. Expand

Sustainable transport fleet appraisal using a hybrid multi-objective decision making approach
TLDR
A holistic framework for sustainable transport fleet appraisal incorporating various vehicle performance, economic and environmental criteria is developed and a novel hybrid approach for sustainable transportation vehicle evaluation and selection is introduced by combining a three-parameter interval grey number with a rough set theory and VIKOR method.
