Transforming the urban space through transit-oriented development : the 3V approach

  title={Transforming the urban space through transit-oriented development : the 3V approach},
  author={Serge Salat and Gerald Paul Ollivier},
Imagine a city that is more competitive, with higher-quality neighborhoods, lower infrastructure costs, and lower C02 emissions per unit of activity. This city has lower combined transportation and housing costs for its residents than other cities at similar levels of economic activity. Its residents can access most jobs and services easily through a combination of low-cost public transport, walking and cycling. Its core economic and population centers are resilient to natural hazards. It is… 

ReStructuring Urban Space of Hanoi City on the Basis of Urban Mass Transit Development

The appearance of mass rapid transit in megacities like Hanoi is now changing the current urban structure and land-use. According to experiences in many cities in the world, urban structure will

Identifying Urban Structure Based on Transit-Oriented Development

The fast development of urbanization has led to imbalances in cities, causing congestion, pollution, and urban sprawl. In response to the growing concern over the distribution of demand and supply, a

Urban space in transit area of South Sumatra light rail transit in Palembang

A new transportation system built in Palembang, the South Sumatra Light Rail Transit (otherwise known as LRT Sumsel), stretches along the road corridor from Sultan Mahmud Badarudin II Airport to the

Unaccounted infrastructure needs for transit-oriented developments

Increasingly, U.S. cities are focusing on transit-oriented development (TOD) policies to expand the stock of higher-density, mixed-use development near public transit stations within the context of a

The Hidden Wealth of Cities: Creating, Financing, and Managing Public Spaces

In every city, the urban spaces that form the public realm, ranging from city streets, neighborhood squares, and parks to public facilities such as libraries and markets—account for about one-third

Many metropolitan cities of Asia are planning and implementing extensive investment in mass transit network and thus, are now at the threshold of whether they become transit cities or car traffic

ISUF 2019 XXVI International Seminar on Urban Form: Cities as Assemblages

With the vast expansion of cities enabled by motorised transport, the conjunction between metropolitan and neighbourhood mobilities has attracted increasing attention in transport and urban research.



Accessibility and the choice of network investments in the London Underground

In 1863, the Metropolitan Railway of what came to be known as the London Underground successfully opened as the world’s first subway. Its high ridership spawned interest in additional links.

A long-time limit for world subway networks

It is shown that the temporal evolution of the structure of the world's largest subway networks converge to a shape that shares similar generic features despite their geographical and economic differences, and suggests the existence of dominant, universal mechanisms governing the evolution of these structures.

Gibrat's Law for (All) Cities

Two empirical regularities concerning the size distribution of cities have repeatedly been established: Zipf's law holds (the upper tail is Pareto), and city growth is proportionate. Census 2000 data

Zipf's Law for Cities: An Explanation

Zipf ’s law is a very tight constraint on the class of admissible models of local growth. It says that for most countries the size distribution of cities strikingly fits a power law: the number of

The origin of bursts and heavy tails in human dynamics

It is shown that the bursty nature of human behaviour is a consequence of a decision-based queuing process: when individuals execute tasks based on some perceived priority, the timing of the tasks will be heavy tailed, with most tasks being rapidly executed, whereas a few experience very long waiting times.
