2 Public Transport In Jordan Mode share in the country The Multimodal Transport Model July 2013
3 Public Transport In Jordan Transport in Jordan should start going GREEN.By changing the mode share to be in the side of public transport instead of private cars.Vehicles growthStatis-quo should change

5 EU Definition of Green Transport Green transport system is resource-efficient, climate- and environmentally-friendly, safe and seamless for the benefit of all citizens, the economy and society.It is also known as Sustainable Transport
6 Narrow and Broad Scope of Green Transport WalkingCyclinggreen vehicles( solar and wind powered)WalkingCyclinggreen vehicles( solar and wind powered)Bus and railwayGreen highways
7 Green Transport policy Reduction in Transport Energy Use.Increase in Renewable Fuels.Low Impact on Life Cycle Environment.
8 Reduction in Transport Energy Use. Shift model choice from motorized modes to non motorized modes.Jordan vision : Shift from almost 45% mode share to 20% motorizedShift passenger transportation from private autos to public transport.Jordan Target : increase share from 13% mode share to 30%Shift freight transportation from truck to rail.Jordan Vision: Implementing the National Railway NetworkShift vehicle technology and design from more energy use to less energy use ( energy efficiency).Jordan Vision: introduce hybrid or electrical vehicles in the long termShift urban design from higher travel demand to lower travel demand.Jordan Vision: not integrated in urban Planning yet
9 Increase in Renewable Fuels Shift fuel usage from petroleum fuels to non-petroleum fuels.
10 Green Transport Strategies Three major variables drive transportation energy usage and emission:Vehicle miles traveled (VMT)Vehicle technologiesFuel characteristicsInstitutional strategies.
11 VMT Reduction strategies Adopt smart land use growth, such asComprehensive Regional Planning,Land Use Master Plan at National level (municipal)was developedUrban PlanningCompact City, and Mixed Land Use,Amman Developed a master plan that adopt densification concept.Transit Oriented Development (TOD).Mass Transit system is introduced in Amman That is linked to nearby Zarqa City and many to come in the future
12 VMT Reduction strategies Improve public transit, such as transit services improvements, Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), Light Rail Transport (LRT), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), etc.Amman BRT and Amman Zarqa BRT and Hopefully LRT to the airportIntroduce non-motorized alternatives such as bike infrastructure improve walking environment.New Biking project is currently in processEmploy travel demand management such as road pricing (TOLL), high occupancy vehicle (HOV), transit commuters incentive, working hours change.Ideas are under consideration
13 land use Approach TOD TOD Higher Population Density Mixed Land Use Pedestrian –friendly environmentGood Feeder systemReduce trips ratesEncourage non-auto travelIncrease transit ridership
14 Transit Oriented Development Integrated Transfer Center For Intercity Bus, City Bus, Mass Rapid Transit (MRT and High Speed Rail (HSR).Higher Density and Mixed Land Use development at or nearby Transfer center.Pedestrian Friendly sidewalk system.
15 Travel Demand Management (TDM) Reduce DemandLand use approachTelecommunication approachTDMFrom auto to publicShift demandFrom peak to off-peak
16 Institutional strategies Integrate green transport with national transport policy.Ensure the central and local transport and infrastructure funding to advance green transport.Require legislative changes and institutional structures to facilitate coordination and implementation.Provide incentives for good green transport projects.Provide a green transport guidance on planning construction, management and maintenance of transportation projects.A will and Determination isneeded but???
17 Green highways Concept Implement options with less damage to the green landscape.Use recycled materials to build the highway (environmentally friendly)Promote ride sharing and public transport to maximize the use of existing highways.Restore natural drainage path to protect streams channels.Use innovative natural methods to reduce imperviousness
18 Current Actions Towards Green Transport in Jordan Ministry of transport is participating in the new program on Renewable Energy under the component of:Provision of energy services across developmental sectorEnergy saving equipment installation at stations of the new BRT project Amman-Zarqa.Major bus terminals/stations (44) to be rehabilitated to accommodate energy saving facilities & set up. (piloting).Enforcement unit for regulations that saves energy to be established within LTRC.Solar system installation at Ministry of transport premises for renewable energy.
19 conclusion To re-evaluate the focus and priority of strategies. To establish the institutional system including legal base, funding support and implementation, have to be clearly and firmly determined.To reach consensus through campaigning and communicating with leaders and stakeholders in all areas.To build data and tools to provide green transport information
