Part of: Urban Public Transportation Systems: Implementing Efficient Urban Transit Systems and Enhancing Transit Usage

Abstract: Due to the economic and urban development in Shanghai, there were substantial changes in the urban travel characteristics. Since the transit systems failed to keep pace with the rapid economic and urban development, it cannot provide the appropriate transit services to satisfy people's demands. To attract more people to use public transit service, the city needs to develop an integrated rail-based transit system that can carry large amount of passengers with fast, convenient, and comfortable service.
